Sterling shines on Manchester City return

  • Arsenal v Manchester City – Premier League – Emirates Stadium

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 past year as it put up an astounding 100 points by winning 32 of 38 matches.

Manchester City kicked off the defence of their title with a classy 2-0 victory over Arsenal on Sunday afternoon. Riyad Mahrez took the resulting free-kick and forced a save from Cech low down to his right, before the Arsenal stopper reacted quickly to deny Aymeric Laporte's close-range follow up with an instinctive stop. Emery will need time, but there was evidence of his organisational streak coming into play. City were superior to Arsenal in every department. I'm not sure Danny Welbeck at left-back was quite the change they expected when Emery was announced as their new manager but hey, needs must.

Emery added that he wants each of his players, regardless of their positions on the pitch to adopt a holistic approach to the games they play. His impressive technique with the ball at his feet brought Petr Cech to shame.

DF Hector Bellerin, 6 - Pleased though he will have been to have escaped a 90-minute examination by Leroy Sane, Bellerin was still given a hard afternoon by the risky Sterling. "In the first half we needed less respect for City and then more aggressive pressing".

But on the evidence of this game, City look ready to break that trend. And the team for 90 minutes, they ran, they tried, they pushed, but I think we need to improve [everything], collectively and also individually. And we count on him. Midfielder Aaron Ramsey is a doubt for the fixture. But for this game alone, his work as a shot-stopper was outstanding, making a series of excellent saves.

"He made some good moves in the World Cup, the way he created spaces for others". Going forward, things were made particularly hard for him by the absence of a natural left-back to lend him support. It's been a good pre-season by all accounts and a full-season of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would suggest goals won't be a problem. "We trained just one week, two weeks, but the spirit was there". The "Merci Arsene" banner was the only indication that it has been a summer of transition at the north London club since Wenger was pushed toward resigning after 22 years in charge.

DF Stephan Lichtsteiner, 6 - Replaced Maitland-Niles, showing his versatility by filling in at left-back.

Emery sent on Alexandre Lacazette soon after the interval and the France forward had an immediate impact, taking Aubameyang's pass and shooting just wide.
