Sterling shines on Manchester City return

Unai Emery has brought five new stars to the Emirates

"I said to him when he arrived with us after the holidays, I want the best performance in his career from this player - and to work for that", Emery said.

The season's curtain raiser saw last season's runners-up, Manchester United recover from their pre-season blues and a quiet transfer window by edging former champions Leicester at Old-Trafford in the season's opener on Friday night 2-1.

Arsenal almost equalised in the 21 minute when Hector Bellerin received a precise pass inside the box, but City keeper Ederson was quickly off his line and smothered the attacker.

However, Emery said Welbeck has shown he can play all over the pitch: "Danny Welbeck is one of the players who has a multi-position possibility".

"We knew we had to go and get the second because they started the second half very strong".

"We arrived after a hard season and I told him I want to help him and would like him to be happy".

Arsenal, meanwhile, lacked sharpness in the final third and rarely managed to maintain possession, with Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan struggling to impact the game while playing out wide in a 4-3-3 system.

World Cup stars Jan Vertonghen, Dele Alli lead tired Tottenham
Eriksen's corner delivery is met by Sanchez who flicks it on to Vertonghen at the back post. The best came in the 85th minute when Salomon Rondon had a shot deflect off the crossbar.

"For me, that is the best message I can give the supporters. But I think this process today is normal, especially against a team like Manchester City".

GK Petr Cech, 5 - It would appear that, for now at least, Cech has held off the challenge off the younger and more expensive Bernd Leno to remain first choice.

"We have to continue working tactically and defensively, and also making shorter the difference between Manchester City and us".

Perhaps Emery should start thinking about replacing Cech with Leno, who is clearly much more calm and composed in possession.

When you watch their matches, they play with great confidence in themselves and also I think Guardiola's coaching is clear in this team.

Ten minutes into the second half substitute Alexandre Lacazette nearly levelled matters for Arsenal when he broke into the box, but his 16-yard shot struck the side-netting.

Emery, meanwhile, will know he has much to do, even before a hard derby with Chelsea next weekend.

New signing, Stephan Lichtsteiner and youngster Ainsley Maitland Niles, who filled in at left-back last season, are likely to be given the task of facing Manchester City's wingers Riyad Mahrez and Leroy Sane.
