Welbeck at the back? Emery impressed by Danny's versatility

Arsenal new head coach Unai Emery. – AFP

It's a new dawn at Arsenal! After sending Calum Chambers on loan to Fulham a few days ago, Emery seems to be going with the idea of fielding Sokratis and Mustafi as his preferred choice of central defensive pairing.

The Emirates Stadium in London will host the Arsenal vs Manchester City EPL match.

Aguero saw an early second-half strike deflected behind for a corner before Emery brought on Alexandre Lacazette for Aaron Ramsey. It's just about returning to the top four - to qualify for the Champions League - after slumping to sixth in Wenger's final campaign.

Unai Emery couldn't have asked for a tougher start to his Arsenal career. "There was a gap last season but this season I don't know".

"What we'll see Arsenal do more this season is win games tactically".

He'll be joining a strong attacking force that already includes the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Leroy Sane and Sergio Aguero.

The report claims that Silva's injury is not severe and the midfielder could have featured, but City opted not to risk him due to their wealth of options in midfield.

That's football, that's football management, and I think football is changing and probably football managers should be called head coaches.

City made just one signing over the summer as Riyad Mahrez arrived from Leicester, but despite their lack of acquisitions, it would be hard to bet against City being even better in 2018/19. But, he has failed to make a good first-impression, largely thanks to his wobbly form in the pre-season. But City, fresh from their record points total last season, started 2018-19 with an incredibly dominant victory at the Emirates with goals in either half from Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva. John Stones and Kyle Walker lines-up in defence along with Benjamin Mendy.

However, it is unlikely that David Silva will take part as the Spaniard missed the Community Shield win over Chelsea and is a doubt for Sunday's game.

"His experience here at Arsenal and the Premier League is very important and will give us all the information and performances in his quality".

This is the 11th meeting between Pep Guardiola and Unai Emery, their first in the Premier League, while Guardiola having never lost any of those.

Despite their bright start, Arsenal fell behind - Cech failed to cover himself in glory as Sterling opened the scoring a long-range strike that appeared to flash past the unsighted Gunners captain and put City ahead.

Arsenal have received six red cards on opening day games, most by any side. More often than not, Manchester City happily played around the pressure.
