Arsenal player ratings vs Manchester City: Mesut Ozil woes on opening day

Unai Emery has named Laurent Koscielny as Arsenal's main captain though the defender remains out with an ankle injury

Several, including England stars Raheem Sterling, Kyle Walker and John Stones, cut short their holidays to get back into training with City.

Although Emery failed to record a victory against Guardiola during that four-year period, his tactical approach often caused serious problems in the first halves of matches.

Unai Emery has been speaking ahead of Arsenal's first match of the 2018-19 Premier League season.

"We are not going to judge what is going to happen after one game but we try to respond, we try to be ourselves". This wasn't their greatest ever performance, but the fact they were so comfortable against a side that would realistically be wanting to challenge them, is paramount of just how good this Manchester City team is. "He likes to score goals and he tried, but I'm sure in the European qualifiers he will score goals for his country, England".

"We spoke about this before the game. they know they can do it". Danilo is expected to miss the opening games of the season with an ankle injury.

Mourinho doesn't envisage Yerry Mina at Manchester United
It might be hard for him to get regular playing time at Chelsea this season, so sending him out on loan makes sense. Zouma subsequently missed almost one season of football before he made his return to the pitch.

"We arrived after a hard season [in 2016, when Guardiola had made a point of contacting Sterling during Euro 2016 to offer his support] and I told him I wanted to help him and would like him to be happy".

"He has a lot of things to improve". And we do count on him.

His manager might be thrilled about Welbeck's versatility but Arsenal fans are crossing every body part they have in the hope that they don't see their striker line up at full-back against the rampaging attack possessed by Pep Guardiola.

Sergio Aguero passed up a hugely presentable chance just before Silva put the result beyond any doubt with 64 minutes gone with a thunderous strike from a Benjamin Mendy cutback, as the Unai Emery era at Arsenal ended in disappointing fashion. "And today is the first step in that". Emery, even if successful in the long-term, will probably take time to assert himself at a club used to only one man for 22 years. "I thought we did it pretty well".

He said: "We wanted to start here with our supporters". We spoke at half-time about taking more responsibility for the second half, to do a little more.
