Arsenal v Manchester City

Aaron Ramsey

Pep Guardiola was delighted that Manchester City came through a hard opening day at Arsenal with a victory after being without so many of his players during the preseason.

Unai Emery, Manager of Arsenal speaks with Mesut Ozil of Arsenal during the Premier League match between Arsenal FC and Manchester City at Emirates Stadium on August 12, 2018 in London, United Kingdom. Guardiola's side looked unstoppable for the first half an hour but then took their foot off the gas and allowed Arsenal back into it, although they won at a canter.

They embarrassed us badly a few times last season and they themselves will be feeling very confident as they begin the defence of their title.

"Today he played good also".

Raheem Sterling opened the scoring with a clinical finish early in the first half and Bernardo Silva's thunderous strike capped a City success that served as a resounding warning to their title rivals. The same when we are thinking defensively, I want our strikers to be thinking: "We need to protect the goalkeepers".

The hosts will improve as Unai Emery gradually imprints his style but take nothing away from City. "To win here and the way we played is so important for our confidence". More goals, more assists.

"What I saw in the last training sessions and Chelsea and Arsenal games is we are still there". When business came to a close on Thursday afternoon, the Gunners had forked out just over £71 million over the summer, with defensive midfielder Lucas Torreira and goalkeeper Bernd Leno amongst the key players to arrive at the club.

Cech made several saves to keep Arsenal in the game but also seemed to struggle a bit when playing with his feet, almost scoring an own goal in the first half when he mishit a back pass from Guendouzi. "I think in the second half we played more like we want".

Aubameyang is looking forward to continuing his good form of last term when he hit 10 goals and four assists in Arsene Wenger's final six months at the club. He's working very well.

"He can wait his moment". Both sides go into the fixture with injury worries.

Emery was unable to shed any light on an injury to Ainsley Maitland-Niles - who was replaced in the first half - and hopes Nacho Monreal can return to training to give him an option at left-back.

Emery, meanwhile, will know he has much to do, even before a hard derby with Chelsea next weekend.
