He faces a Guardiola who is now fully into the swing of things at Manchester City and had an unparalleled domestic campaign a year ago where City racked up 100 points.

Manchester City bolstered their attacking line with the club record signing of Riyad Mahrez but were not as active in the transfer window as they were this time a year ago.

"Or Manchester United. People don't know how good they will be this season, but I know the manager a little bit and I know in that situation how good they will handle it".

The Gunners appointed Emery early in the summer so he had ample time to prepare, but he was not the Arsenal board's first choice and their primary target, Mikel Arteta, will take his seat on the visitors' bench on Sunday. The likes of Kevin de Bruyne and David Silva are not expected to be up to speed yet but City still looked a class apart without them when they beat Chelsea in the Community Shield last weekend.

Manchester City have launched the 2018/19 away kit! City's left-back missed nearly the entirety of last season through injury, and his overlapping will bring an extra dimension to City's attacking play.

Despite last season's stunning achievements, Guardiola was his usual guarded self when talking about City's prospects for the year ahead, believing as many as five other teams could prevent him from becoming the first manager in a decade to retain the title.

Arsenal's director of high performance also said that the Spanish manager was also working on the player positioning depending on where the ball is in certain areas of the pitch and this is something which Aubameyang tried to explain after their friendly match against Boreham Wood, and said that the plan is all about working together to try to recover the ball when you lose it.

That coupled with their exceptional midfield and options in forward areas mean they'll be favourites again this season.

The new Gunners boss begins life in the Premier League with a clash against the Citizens at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon. But, owing to match fitness and sharpness, Maitland-Niles could well start. Bosnian Sead Kolasinac is out for two months with a knee injury and Nacho Monreal isn't yet match fit.

Man city is nearly the ideal squad with a mix of experience (Silva, Kompany, Fernandinho) and youngsters such as Gabriel Jesus and lightning-quick Leroy Sane, not to forget the lethal duo of Kevin De Bruyne and Kun Aguero.

Vida would set back the Gunners a potential 20 million euros - a small price to pay to sure up the shaky and inconsistent defence that has plagued the Gunners in recent seasons.

Having missed out on the Champions League, Arsenal will play in the Europa league but boy aren't they in safe hands!
