Although it's obvious he wants Arsenal to play the ball out from the back, one wonders if a more direct approach might have enabled them to bypass City's midfield.

"It's the first game of the season, you want to start well and I'm happy to contribute", he told Sky Sports .

"It's a little frustrating to lose but we are a new team", he said.

Here's how to watch Manchester City vs. Arsenal online.

Emery and his team certainly had to hit the ground running, as the regular season opener came against an opponent that broke the Premiership records for points, victories, goals, goal differential and title winning margin last season. I can't back City at odds-on, so I'll go for Draw / Man City in the Half Time / Full Time market at [5.8]. "Hopefully we can convince him to be calm and forget the social media!" More goals, more assists. He didn't play in Manchester City's win over Chelsea in the Community Shield.

What was so remarkable about this performance from Pep Guardiola's side was that it lacked numerous key players that starred as they strolled to the title last campaign.

France left-back Benjamin Mendy is like a new recruit, given he missed much of last season with a serious knee injury.

Manigault Newman also describes Trump as a man who "loved conflict, chaos and confusion; he loved seeing people argue or fight". The book also claims that Mr Trump behaves "like a dog off the leash" at events he attends without his wife, Melania.


Sterling proved to be City's creative fulcrum, but he was fortunate to escape with a yellow card for a studs-up foul on Arsenal debutant Matteo Guendouzi in the early stages.

"Mendy has a lot of things to improve".

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

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. Working to help when we need quick pressing against the opposition".

Looking completely lost in midfield and falling to track the run of Bernardo Silva for the second goal, the Swiss global continues to look like a player with little direction.

City thrashed Wenger's Arsenal 3-0 twice in four days last season but there was renewed vigour heading into the campaign, with Emery keen not to dwell on the Frenchman's reign and admitting he has not held a conversation with his predecessor at any point. Injuries to Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Monreal had forced Emery to call on Ainsley Maitland-Niles at left-back, and the youngster, a natural midfielder, struggled badly against Riyad Mahrez and the overlapping Kyle Walker as City pinned the home side back in their own territory.
