Guardiola keen to keep Sterling after he helps City outclass Arsenal

Petr Cech will captain Arsenal against Manchester City this weekend

Sunday was the first real chance to see how Emery's Arsenal would play and for the most part, Gunners fans should be optimistic.

Wenger's third and final Premier League title came way back in 2003-04, but most people can agree that his overall time at Arsenal was positive. David Silva failed to make the matchday squad. What a start to his and City's season. There was one double save in particular, denying Riyad Mahrez from the free kick and then Aymeric Laporte on the follow up.

Fellow summer signings Bernd Leno, Lucas Torreira and Stephan Lichtsteiner are all on the bench.

The Gunners were far too structured and predictable, nearly robotic as they consistently played short passes out from the back at every opportunity. Petr Cech made some fine saves but he looked deeply uncomfortable with Emery's emphasis on building from the back, repeatedly landing his team-mates in trouble and at one point nearly passing the ball into his own net. "Mendy has a lot of things to improve and hopefully we can convince him to be calm, to forget a little bit the social media and focus on what he has to do".

Those players will join an Arsenal dressing room that is already stacked with top-class talent, with the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Mesut Ozil making up the Gunners' ranks. Alas, the former Lyon man should have at least hit the target soon after his introduction when he was afforded time and space to let his own touch bounce back down, but his volley drifted well wide of Ederson's goal.

Sergio Aguero will continue to play in the striker position. Thus, he is definitely a huge threat for the Manchester City defence, likely to be led by English worldwide John Stones.

Raheem Sterling in the 14′ and Bernardo Silva in the 64′ were the two shooters to get the ball past Cech, who didn't have a very solid showing.

"He has personality and quality and if he is on the pitch he is improving very quickly".

But on the evidence of this game, City look ready to break that trend. But it's just one game [in the Premier League]. Much is expected of Wolves after they took the Championship by storm last season, winning the title in style, and they began with a point in a 2-2 home draw with Everton.

City were playing with the same vibrancy we showed in last weekend's win over Chelsea and were nearly 2-0 up when Aguero brought down just outside box by Sokratis.
