Arsenal boss Unai Emery has shared his ambitious plan to win the Premier League title ahead of welcoming champions Manchester City to the Emirates on Sunday.

The 23-year-old picked up where he left off from City's title win last season in which he scored 18 goals, helping Guardiola's side to a 2-0 win over Arsenal in the Gunners' first top-flight game under the Unai Emery era.

Sterling had the game's first real chance, picking up a Sergio Aguero flick before getting past Shkodran Mustafi easily and forcing a smart save from Petr Cech at his near post.

"We needed more but I am happy with the players, they run and fight", Emery said.

Alexandre Lacazette was introduced ten minutes into the second half to add a fresher impetus up front, a different target for the likes of Ozil, Ramsey and Henrikh Mikhitaryan to find.

But, he was a key outlet going forward as he was involved in both of Manchester City's goals. Mesut Ozil enjoyed a largely uncharacteristic game in the final third while City's counterpressing did enough to stifle Arsenal and force them into quicker, unstable progressions.

"Today is the first step".

Guardiola maintains he has been an advocate of Sterling's importance to City since his own arrival at the Etihad off the back of England's disappointing Euro 201 exit. Also, they are building one team with security, with good players, with great stability, playing like they want, and we are starting. But I don't think we were courageous enough early on. And the team for 90 minutes, they ran, they tried, they pushed, but I think we need to improve [everything], collectively and also individually.

It seemed the goal might open the floodgates, but Cech was in solid form and kept the score down to just one.

Emery's side continued with their pressing approach and nearly forced an equaliser as Hector Bellerin cut inside and tested Ederson with a drilled effort. In fact, the Gunners gave him very little space to work with, which ideally prevented him from making much of a difference from the central area of the pitch. "He played also good in the preseason, but he can wait for his moment to arrive".

Another worry for Arsenal is that their left-back situation worsened when Ainsley Maitland-Niles hobbled off in the first half with a leg injury. With Sead Kolasinac's knee injury keeping him out of action for the next two months, Nacho Monreal is the natural replacement for the Bosnian.

Emery, meanwhile, will know he has much to do, even before a hard derby with Chelsea next weekend.
