  • Arsenal vs Manchester City: 3 key battles in Emery’s league debut

Manchester City laid down a marker to their title rivals with a comfortable 2-0 win against Arsenal, prompting manager Pep Guardiola to claim he was "privileged" to manage the Premier League champions. I left it five minutes into the second half, after speaking to them and saying we needed to be on the front foot more.

Matteo Guendouzi's error gave Aguero the freedom of the Arsenal half and the Argentina star shot too close to Cech as De Bruyne screamed for a square pass. We have a lot of players with a lack of condition but we are more than two seasons together and know what to do.

Look at what Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech did in the first half, almost kicking the ball into his own net.

FW Mesut Ozil, 6 - After the fallout from the World Cup, Ozil would have had every motivation to make a positive impact upon this game.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are in a new era following the appointment of Unai Emery as well as several new signings this summer. "And today is the first step in that". Fifty-three seconds later, Sterling and Benjamin Mendy worked an overlap down Arsenal's right and the French left-back picked out Bernardo Silva in a crowded area for the Portuguese winger to rifle home.


"I know exactly what we did to achieve that and we start from there". The same when we are thinking defensively, I want our strikers to be thinking: "We need to protect the goalkeepers". And the team for 90 minutes, they ran, they tried, they pushed, but I think we need to improve [everything], collectively and also individually. "Manchester City have given me a fantastic squad". Mahrez, making his league debut for the Citizens, then curled an effort wide after getting the better of Arsenal substitute and fellow debutant Stephan Lichtsteiner.

It seemed the goal might open the floodgates, but Cech was in solid form and kept the score down to just one. "He has this experience for continuing to defend our goal", Emery said. "Also, Leno is starting with us". He's working very well.

'But he can wait to arrive in this moment'.

The biggest concern for the Arsenal boss was Aaron Ramsey's involvement in the game, owing to the Welshman's recent absence due to a calf injury. But. Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac are set to miss the game owing to injuries and Emery may have to ask Ainsley Maitland-Niles to deputise in the backline.

Emery faces the same challenge and having failed for the 11th time in 11 attempts to overcome Guardiola, the next game at Chelsea on Saturday offers little in the way of reprieve.
