Emery set for baptism of fire as Arsenal host City

Emery set for baptism of fire as Arsenal host City”

Emery has been tasked with restoring Arsenal to the top of English football, after the Gunners finished in sixth place in the Premier League table and without a trophy last term. "The quality gap is not as big as in the Bundesliga". But City did pull out of a bidding battle with Chelsea for midfielder Jorginho, who was swiftly reunited with former Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge.

It's obvious that their defence held them back from greater success last season, and it's been a problem which has been ongoing for some time. Liverpool, just like Tottenham, must win something someday. He admitted that Leno is a good keeper, but he also asked an important question, "Can he show more than he did in the past?"

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher is predicting that we will see a much more tactically astute and disciplined Arsenal side this season under the North London club's new boss Unai Emery.

"If it's not their goal to win the league, why all the changes in the club?"

There were obvious problems with the Arsenal side last season and now, the club's Head of High-Performance Darren Burgess has revealed what Unai Emery most wanted to fix as head coach. The 46-year-old has won three UEFA Europa League titles with Sevilla, a French Ligue 1 trophy and two French League Cups with Paris Saint-Germain, and has been known for his high-pressing, intensive style of play, which Arsenal have been missing during the past few underwhelming seasons. There were a lot of positives in the pre-season games the Gunners played, especially the seamless induction of young players like Matteo Guendouzi and Emile Rowe Smith into the first team. The new era begins this weekend when they host defending champions Manchester City. But Spurs and [Harry] Kane must make use of the current momentum they have before it collapses one day.

But how have Arsenal been preparing for the new season?
