Where Manchester City won this game was on the flanks.

Pre-season training has included intense double sessions and players can brace themselves for the hairdryer if they don't reach the high standards their new boss has set. Emery said. "The past is very important for this club with the people who were working here". But he knows and his agent knows we like him and want him a lot.

The England forward was outstanding despite having been back in training for less than a week after his exertions in Russian Federation and scored the opening goal as Arsenal, under new management, were swept aside at the Emirates.

Emery has got his work cut out, with most critics claiming Wenger hung on too long.

One game into the season and we've already had two collectors' items - a Luke Shaw goal and a happy Jose. From the resulting free-kick Neves curled an unstoppable effort into the top-right corner.

Granit Xhaka should start and we could see the best of him now that he won't have the defensive duties quite so much following the arrival of Lucas Torreira.

"The team, for 90 minutes, they ran, they tried, they pushed, but we need to improve all collective and individual aspects".

Manchester City and Arsenal faced off in the final fixture of the opening game week of the new Premier League season as Unai Emery was pitted against Pep Guardiola in his first ever competitive game as Arsenal manager.

The first captain in this group is Koscielny.
