Manchester City make Emery suffer in his Premier League debut

13 Août, 2018, 08:03 | Auteur: Christine Menetries

It was always going to be a tough start to the season for Unai Emery and his new Arsenal era. Arsenal had been busy shoring up their side during the transfer window, with mostly defensive recruitment.

Not only are Manchester City the title-holders, but they are still unquestionably the team to beat this season.

"It's clear today, Manchester City is demanding our best performance, " the former Paris Saint-Germain and Sevilla coach said.

It took a double save from Cech to keep Arsenal in the match, first saving a Riyad Mahrez free kick and then deflecting Aymeric Laporte's follow up out for a corner. As for Arsenal, there wasn't much creativity and Mesut Ozil was had a horrendous day.

City were then nearly gifted a comedic second when Cech's attempted pass to Mustafi rolled past his post and out for a corner.

There could be debuts for Torreira, Sokratis and Leno, as the German is indeed considered as Arsenal's new No.1, ahead of veteran Petr Cech. Manchester City were excellent.

The big news, however, was the absence of Aaron Ramsey from their last friendly with Lazio, with the Welshman reportedly suffering from a minor calf injury. The midfielder has returned to full training and Emery would want his best midfielder to be part of the starting-XI against the Champions.

"In general to be at this moment of the season, with the desire to run and run, it was the same last season".

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had a late goal ruled out for offside that summed up the Gabonese striker's afternoon.

"With more time we will play with this personality".

"We have to continue working tactically and defensively, and also making shorter the difference between Manchester City and us".

Sterling has two years left to run on the five-year deal signed when he moved to City from Liverpool in July 2015.

One difference for City this season is the presence of Benjamin Mendy at left-back. Ederson is expected to replace Claudio Bravo in goal after the Chilean started City's Community Shield win over Chelsea.

The contest was the Gunners' first Premier League game without Arsene Wenger for 22 seasons and Emery's first competitive one since taking over.

Wenger departed having managed more matches than any manager in Premier League history - winning three league titles and a record seven FA Cup championships in his remarkable career, according to the Premier League site. Their very presence made it hard for Arsenal to defend. Those that know him say Emery watches 12 hours of video for each game, and you can expect the Arsenal players to watch a good few hours too preparing for this match.

"We'll do our effort to make him feel we count on him".

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.
