Welbeck at the back? Emery impressed by Danny’s versatility

Aaron Ramsey

Asked how much motivation his players have, Guardiola said: "It is not a question that needs an answer".

An early Raheem Sterling goal and a second-half strike from Bernardo Silva proved to be enough on a comfortable afternoon for the champions.

Arsenal's Sokratis Papastathopoulos falls down in front of Manchester City's Raheem Sterling during the English Premier League soccer match between Arsenal and Manchester City at the Emirates stadium in London, England, Sunday, Aug. 12, 2018.

Welbeck, 27, has traditionally played in more advanced positions during his career, but with Sead Kolasinac out for two months with a knee injury and Nacho Monreal also unavailable for their Premier League opener against Manchester City on Sunday, Emery has been toying with using the England worldwide as a left-back.

He represented his country in three World Cups, including the 2002 edition, when Brazil won its fifth tournament title. It can be life-threatening, especially among the elderly and those with underlying health conditions.

"Many players did a sacrifice, Stones, Walker, we trained for only one week but the spirit is there". He does well in the system to get forward with a mix of runs, and he's been able to improve on his ability to create chances for himself. Who knows, they could be City's greatest challenge if they come through the first two fixtures unscathed.

The France global missed most of last season with an injury and Guardiola admitted his return is still a work in progress. Perhaps we'll see more from him when Lucas Torreira is installed as his regular partner.

'Leno is starting with us, he's working very well, he played well in pre-season.

6 - Few Arsenal fans expected Emery to win his first game, but the scale of the task at hand is now clear.

MF Matteo Guendouzi, 5 - It was a huge call on Emery's part to select the youngster, who last season was playing in the second tier of French football.

As Pep Guardiola's side strolled to three points, they started singing about Arsenal's former manager, but their Gunners' counterparts produced a brilliant response. "And today is the first step in that".

Guardiola took time to settle too, but he answered his critics last season and his team's performance in the Community Shield suggested that they are raring to go once more. It was a fantastic game for us, so now we have to keep going.

Unai Emery Hints At Starting Youngster Against Manchester City
It's about the mix, when you have a defensive or attacking moment, and I want every player to improve in this way. The game will start at 13.30 today. "I can not see any way past Manchester City , in terms of who will win it".
