Arsenal 0-2 Manchester City: Pep eases past Emery

Jose Mourinho

Guardiola has no doubt Arsenal, who are at the start of a new era under Unai Emery, can prove to be one of the challengers.

Neither Kolasinac nor Monreal are expected to feature in the Gunners' season opener against defending champions Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.

For City, it's a lovely start away from home and it shows that even this early in the season, this team is once again the favorite to win the league.

Otamendi comes for too many aerial balls he can't win, Kompany is turned too often on the ground. Cech saved well, but moments later Arsenal were 2-0 down anyway, and City already out of sight. Eliaquim Mangala and Danilo are injured while World Cup starters Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling are expected to play after a late return to the side.

City, meanwhile, only managed to bring Algeria worldwide Riyad Mahrez in the transfer window, while the likes of Yaya Toure and Joe Hart have left.

Pep Guardiola also has a couple of injuries but will consider himself the more fortunate manager of the two as his starters are fit for the game.

Arsenal themselves travel to play Chelsea next weekend and Emery will need to make sure his squad regroup.

The Gunners have bolstered their significantly in the off-season with the arrival Matteo Guendouzi, Bernd Leno, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Lucas Torreira. Expect goals at the Emirates Stadium as a new dawn settles on the London Horizon. The midfielder has returned to full training and Emery would want his best midfielder to be part of the starting-XI against the Champions. We have a lot of players with a lack of condition but we are more than two seasons together and know what to do.

Unai Emery couldn't have asked for a tougher start to his Arsenal career.

Although the competition hardly carries the weight of other trophies, it was an emphatic statement from City that they are ready to continue where they left off last season.

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

David Silva is a big worry for City, as he is still nursing an injury while also being absent from the entirety of City's pre-season and will definitely be absent for the Arsenal game. We were the best last season, definitely, there is no doubt about it. Raheem Sterling cut through the defence easily before putting City ahead in the 14th minute, and Bernardo Silva curled in the second in the 64th at the Emirates Stadium.

If it's a 4-3-3 Ozil will play from the right, although won't relish the prospect of tracking back with Benjamin Mendy.

There is no rest for the tired in England's Premier League as the 2018-19 season is underway.

Arsenal have received six red cards on opening day games, most by any side.
