Pep Guardiola: winning matches, not titles, is my motivation

Liverpool

His employers at Sky Sports may not appreciate it, but Gary Neville is looking at the prospect of Manchester City dominating the Premier League and asking himself: "Should we just all go home for 10 months and not bother watching?"

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

Emery has European pedigree in that competition though and that could remain their best chance of getting back into the Champions League.

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.

Chelsea Confirmed Lineup vs Huddersfield: Kepa, Jorginho make Premier League debut
Vertonghen and Alli struck either side of Joselu's equaliser for the Magpies with all three goals coming in the first 18 minutes. In 23 of the last 25 Serie A [seasons], the 91 points we had a year ago would have been enough to win it.

Manchester City begin their title defence with a trip to North London to play an Arsenal side now managed by Unai Emery. Mauricio Pochettino's men have finished above them for the past two seasons. Benjamin Mendy, a World Cup victor with France will look to keep injuries away as he looks to get a string of games under his belt. While his technical acumen is on par with the best in the business, the English Premier League is altogether a different proposition for any manager.

"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".

It is expected that the former Sampdoria midfielder will start alongside Aaron Ramsey at the base of Arsenal's 4-2-3-1 formation.

Other absentees include Laurent Koscielny who is still nursing a long-term Achilles injury whilst Danny Welbeck is unlikely to be in the squad due to a lack of match fitness.

But Woakes, who had scored nine previous first-class hundreds, and Jonny Bairstow (93) turned the tide during a stand of 189. The challenge for Kohli's side after the tea break is exactly the same as it was after the lunch break: take early wickets .

Ramsey, whose contract expires at the end of the season, suffered a slight calf injury but has returned to training and could be fit to take his place in the Gunners side.

Guardiola insists City would be foolish to think it will ease to the title by such a significant margin once again and believes Arsenal will be part of a strong chasing pack over the course of the season.

"Arsenal will score goals - they have the players for that".

Manchester City: Ederson, Kyle Walker, John Stones, Vincent Kompany, Benjamin Mendy, Fernandinho, Bernardo Silva, Phil Foden, Riyad Mahrez, Leroy Sane and Sergio Aguero.
