City set a host of records - including most points, most wins, most goals and biggest winning margin - as they powered to the Premier League title last term. We can not deny the other contenders.

When asked if City had fashioned a flawless performance, Guardiolan told the BBC's Match Of The Day: "Yes".

Maitland-Niles isn't a natural left-back, although was deployed there on various occasions last season, and his right-footedness might help if Guardiola deploys Riyad Mahrez on the right flank, as the Algerian is always attempting to drift inside onto his left. We made a good performance in general and day by day we will get better and better. Cech saved well, but moments later Arsenal were 2-0 down anyway, and City already out of sight.

Emery has a number of new faces to potentially hand debuts too, but who will he go with from the start against City?

The squad trained at the Emirates for today's opener against Manchester City - a departure from the traditional methods of his predecessor Wenger.

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 a year ago as it put up an astounding 100 points by winning 32 of 38 matches. But will all play a part in their opening game against City?

But the midfielder is absent for the start of his side's title defence at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Problems continued after the break, when newcomer Matteo Guendouzi misjudged an aerial ball on the halfway line, which allowed Aguero a one-on-one chance. Look at his form and where he puts the ball.

In the end it mattered little.

We told you it is Super Sunday didn't we?

"I thought we were on top for the rest of the second half", Hughes said. Unfortunately, we lacked invention to find the killer pass. He always makes his teams hard.

"It was a shame we couldn't finish off our counter attacks and overall we're disappointed with the defeat".

As his spell in La Liga proved, Emery is not only exceptional in developing young, unpolished talents to produce sublime performances, but he also has the uncanny ability of procuring results in unfavourable situations, especially in matches where his team is deemed as "the underdog".
