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

Stan Kroenke

It was expected that Maitland-Niles would cover for left-back after injuries to both Kolasinac and Monreal, but Emery has hinted that may go to Danny Welbeck! Sokratis, Lucas Torreira, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Bernd Leno were all signed as well as the young prodigy, Matteo Guendouzi. Playmaker David Silva could also feature after sitting out at Wembley and goalkeeper Ederson will return.

The Gunners were outclassed at times as Pep Guardiola's side began their title defence with a comfortably win thanks to goals from Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva.

Arsenal, on the other hand, could yet surprise their visitors, owing to renewed energy in the team, following the arrival of new players and a new manager.

He will play alongside Shkodran Mustafi and fans will want better performances than witnessed in pre-season. He could still make manager Unai Emery's 18-man squad, but it will be a late decision on his fitness.

The match can be viewed on Sky Sports Premier League in the UK.

Arsenal finished sixth last season as they completed their campaign in dismal fashion. We were the best last season, definitely, there is no doubt about it. Thus, he is definitely a huge threat for the Manchester City defence, likely to be led by English global John Stones. This could be a rude welcome to Unai Emery's first match in charge Arsenal. But, he might not enjoy a positive start to his Premier League career as he will face the best midfielder in the league in Kevin de Bruyne.

Welbeck has struggled for regular football since joining from Manchester United in 2015, making only 12 starts in the top flight last season. More often than not, Manchester City happily played around the pressure.

In 2012, she was arrested for allegedly slapping a security guard at an Oscars after-party, according to Page Six . The case was settled out of court and Young denied the allegations in a 2007 interview with Entertainment Weekly .

Guardiola's teams are known to evolve into a deadly combination of adroitness and application over prolonged periods of time and it will be intriguing to watch how Manchester City tackle opponents who have specific plans to counter their approach.

Arsenal's defensive signings will give their forward players more freedom and Aubameyang is one to exploit this and torment the opposition.

As for Arsenal, it is a fresh start for a squad that finished in sixth last season, its worst finish since the 1994-95 season, two years before Arsene Wenger took over as manager. Bernard Mendy caused a host of problems down the left-hand side and was involved in City's two goals.
