Is Emery prepared for Pep Guardiola?

I know exactly what we did to achieve that, and that is where we start from.

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.

Not only is Emery a breath of fresh air but also a shrewd tactician, whose CV boasts of a number of Europa league titles and a couple of decent finishes in the Spanish La Liga and the French Ligue 1.

Arsenal finished sixth last season as they completed their campaign in dismal fashion.

"That's the basic principle".

Regarded as a football savant cut from the same cloth as the obsessive Wenger, Emery has impressed Arsenal's players with his detailed video analysis, spending up to 12 hours ahead of each game working on footage for his squad.

City impressed in last weekend's 2-0 Community Shield victory against Chelsea and could welcome back Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling from that group after they were given extra time off following Russian Federation.

Finishing 37 points behind City was a fitting ending for the dispiriting final season of the Wenger era - a torrid campaign played out to a soundtrack of angry protests against the manager from frustrated fans.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has insisted that he will take the season game by game rather than focusing on retaining the Premier League title. The important thing is to be ourselves. The likes of Kevin de Bruyne and David Silva are not expected to be up to speed yet but City still looked a class apart without them when they beat Chelsea in the Community Shield last weekend.

Guardiola revealed on Friday that World Cup stars Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling would be available for selection.

However, after a 10-week break, the EPL is here with us again. "I am focused on that, not focused on back-to-back [titles]", Guardiola told reporters. It's about the mix, when you have a defensive or attacking moment, and I want every player to improve in this way.

Guardiola admits it's not part of the job he likes.

However, this could be a good time to play them. It hurts a lot.

Eventually, Stones might be deployed as a holding midfielder with City losing out to Chelsea in the race for Jorginho. He said: "We can do our job, yes, but maybe Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea can do their job better and win".

Unai Emery 46-year-old former Paris St Germain boss is looking forward to taking on fellow Spaniard Pep Guardiola in his domestic bow.

No club has retained the title since Manchester United in 2008-09.
