Arsenal v Manchester City

Arsenal v Manchester City”

Instead, he has told his players to use their form of previous year - in which they also set records for most points, wins and goals in the Premier League era - to launch another championship charge.

Would he be able to guide the Gunners to victory against a side that amass a record 100 points last season in his first official match?

Guardiola said: People say we now have to forget what we did last season.

However, this could be a good time to play them.

"First, he is injured but he is also captain of this group, is Koscielny", Emery said ahead of Sunday's Premier League opener against Manchester City.

"Emery has had longer with his team than anyone else - they've largely all been together for the whole of pre-season - and they could potentially cause an upset against City on day one".

It's this weekend's biggest game - Unai Emery makes his League debut on the Arsenal bench.

"I have a lot of respect for his career, starting from the bottom and making an excellent career, winning titles and making his teams hard. We start again. That is why it is fascinating, it is a new challenge." he added.

Just a month after the World Cup ended in Russian Federation, it's back to domestic action as two of England's heavyweights meet at the Emirates on Sunday with Arsenal welcoming Manchester City to North London. "If we don't we are not going to win".

"Even when you are flawless, the other team can be better".

Arsenal start their post-Wenger period with a serious test at home to the Premier League champions, so the Gunners must be up to speed with Unai Emery's tactical approach very quickly.

"I like this positive spirit to help".

Although the competition hardly carries the weight of other trophies, it was an emphatic statement from City that they are ready to continue where they left off last season.

"Maybe Tottenham couldn't spend because of the stadium, but Chelsea - imagine Jorginho, [Mateo] Kovacic and [N'Golo] Kante in midfield, and [Eden] Hazard, Willian, Pedro and [Alvaro] Morata in front". We can not deny the other contenders.

"The [players] show me in two seasons, especially the last one, we can trust them".
