Arsenal Manager: Pep Is Better Me

Kevin de Bruyne did not feature for Manchester City in pre-season friendlies

Emery ended by confirming that he will make a late decision on Sunday on who he might start. Asked if the response showed he has created the ideal culture, the 46-year-old said: "Yes, of course - that's the dream".

During the season we will have really bad moments - it is impossible to have the flawless season all the time - but when you win one title you can win another one.

"'Maybe my advice is alright for me but it might not work for him".

"I have said many times I am not a special guy but I am so good at working, working, working a lot and they have to work too".

Guardiola believes the culture will help the team at hard points this season.

"It is impossible to have the season all the time that is ideal. He has had a lot of success with teams that probably weren't the best technically or didn't have the best players, but they fought till the end and he's showing that to every single player and that's the way he wants us to be involved".

Regarded as a football savant cut from the same cloth as the obsessive Wenger, Emery has impressed Arsenal's players with his detailed video analysis, spending up to 12 hours ahead of each game working on footage for his squad. "The others will be there, yes, and this weekend Arsenal will be completely different from Huddersfield".

"The important thing is to be there and to be ourselves".

"It's not about winning back-to-back, it's to be ourselves".

Aaron Ramsey has won his race to be fit for the match though, with Arsenal looking to improve on their poor record against City last season which saw Pep Guardiola's team beat the Gunners three times - including in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley.

Emery has also pored over film of Arsenal's woes last season and his pre-season transfer dealings suggest he has already identified the problems that Wenger struggled to resolve.

"It's not comfortable, but if you want to compete in four competitions we can not compete with just two good central defenders".

"That's the basic principle".

"I know exactly what we did to achieve that and we start from there".

Guardiola does not believe it will be easy, though.

Speaking ahead of his side's opening game at Arsenal, live on Sky Sports, Guardiola said: "We were the best, definitely, no doubts about that, but we don't play alone". But if we do our job, we will be there.

The Greek worldwide was brought earlier this summer, in order to provide more steel in the backline following the retirement of Per Mertesacker at the end of last season.

However, after a 10-week break, the EPL is here with us again. That's why we stay here. Are you telling me they didn't deserve to play?

Pep, on the other hand, will be expected to deliver the coveted UCL title to the blue side of Manchester, having signed Riyadh Mahrez from Leicester. "There was a gap last season but this season I don't know".
