Welbeck tested in makeshift left-back role for Arsenal

It’s one step at a time for Pep Guardiola

"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". "A win helps to win more". That record would not change on Sunday as Manchester City strolled to a 2-0 win. He could still make manager Unai Emery's 18-man squad, but it will be a late decision on his fitness.

The decision to start Guendouzi will certainly be questioned when you consider that Lucas Torreira was available, but the game itself provided a glimpse at how the gulf in class has widened between these two sides over the past few years. Expect goals at the Emirates Stadium as a new dawn settles on the London Horizon. Defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos whose experience will be vital for Arsenal will start in the central defence along with Mustafi.

It took 206 matches and 143 goals, but Sergio Aguero was finally included in the PFA Premier League Team of the Year for the very first time courtesy of his performances in 2017-18.

Aaron Ramsey, playing at the top of the midfield trio, had some bright moments in the early stages but struggled to get on the ball after City's dominance had become established. The Welshman just returned to training at the end of the week. The major issue is at left-back, where Sead Kolasinac is definitely out and Nacho Monreal is considered doubtful, which may mean Ainsley Maitland-Niles starting.

Finishing 37 points behind City was a fitting ending for the dispiriting final season of the Wenger era - a torrid campaign layed out to a soundtrack of angry protests against the manager from frustrated fans.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery is excited to be working with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The report claims that Silva's injury is not severe and the midfielder could have featured, but City opted not to risk him due to their wealth of options in midfield.

Preferred to summer signing Bernd Leno, Cech went some way to making amends for his shaky start to the season by pushing away a low Riyad Mahrez free-kick and then blocking Aymeric Laporte's close-range follow-up.

The last two matches between the Gunners and the Citizens have ended in a six-goal aggregate win for Guardiola's City. Every club in the Premier League will be taking their best shot against City this season, but, if it's even possible, they are more stacked than they were last season. Emery has faced a Guardiola side 10 times and never won.

The Premier League match between Arsenal and Manchester City will be broadcast live on NBCSN.
