Arsenal's Danny Welbeck training at left-back amid injury crisis

0shares

Petr Cech started in goal for Arsenal's defeat to Manchester City.

Manchester City will look to start its title defense on the right foot after putting up one of the finest seasons in Premier League history previous year as it put up an astounding 100 points by winning 32 of 38 matches. It included two Premier League fixtures and a League Cup final.

Following tireless performances at Russian Federation 2018 let down by errant finishing, Sterling will have taken great satisfaction in launching City's bid for back-to-back titles with his 50th Premier League goal. Emery has confirmed his return to full training this week, and with a good pre-season under his belt, Ramsey could be donning the armband against the champions.

Alexandre Lacazette also starts from the bench, with Mesut Özil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan supporting Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in a front three.

- Stephan Lichtsteiner is the oldest outfield player to make his Premier League debut for Arsenal, at 34 years and 208 days. Kickoff is set for 4 p.m. It is a Super Sunday clash that will see the defending champions travel to the Emirates Stadium. Eastern Daylight Time, 8 a.m.

With the way that City attacked last season, this could turn into a disaster for Unai Emery, who is taking charge of his first competitive game since taking over from legendary Arsenal gaffer, Arsene Wenger.

Sevilla Threaten Withdrawal From Spanish Cup Over Eligibility Rule
The 30-year-old has worn the arm-band for the Catalan giants on numerous occasions before he was named vice-captain since 2015. Barcelona won both competitions last season so have been pitted against last season's cup runners-up this weekend.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles came on for Kolasinac after he was hurt in Arsenal's 1-1 draw with Chelsea on August 1 and Emery said following the match he would not rule out using the 20-year-old against City.

"That's my experience at Bayern Munich and Barcelona".

Key to City's bid for continual improvement is the competition in the squad which requires the players maintain high standards, Guardiola said.

Pep Guardiola claims Manchester City's best may not be good enough in the coming season. The NBC Sports streaming service requires cable or satellite service subscriber login credentials.

Mark Hughes booted a water bottle in frustration as Southampton opened the Premier League season with a 0-0 draw against Burnley on Sunday. Both services require credit card information and subscription fees, but each offers a seven-day free trial, and if the subscription is canceled prior to the expiration of that weeklong period, fans can watch the Arsenal vs. Manchester City match live stream for free.

It was a serene afternoon on the touchline for Guardiola, just like so much of last season which ended with City setting a series of Premier League records, notably by amassing 100 points.
