Arsenal Vs Manchester City: 3 Key Battles To Watch Out For

Arsenal new manager Unai Emery will be hoping that his players don't disappoint him today because everyone associated with the gunners has immerse confidence ahead of their match against Manchester City.

The victory was the ideal start to City's title defence as they aim to become the first team in a decade to win back-to-back Premier League titles.

Pep Guardiola was delighted that Manchester City came through a hard opening day at Arsenal with a victory after being without so many of his players during the preseason.

DF Hector Bellerin, 6 - Pleased though he will have been to have escaped a 90-minute examination by Leroy Sane, Bellerin was still given a hard afternoon by the unsafe Sterling. Together I think we can improve, to win in our way.

Given the truncated preseason he's had after heavy World Cup involvement, his energy and enthusiasm were impressive. They like and want to play and they know at our club they have to show me the good things every day.

FW Alexandre Lacazette, 6 - Came on for Ramsey and provided a much-needed focal point.

Aguero should have doubled City's lead when he was clean through - but Cech made a crucial intervention after coming off his line to deny the Argentine.

"We saw [Sterling] good in the training session and we needed someone in that position and he did it well although he exhausted in the last 20-25 minutes", the City boss added.

Officials had hoped for a second truce later this month during the Eid al-Adha holiday, but that seems unlikely. Some residents fled toward Kabul by traversing rural areas.

"We wanted to be professional, we wanted to make it serious like last season".

But, he might not enjoy a positive start to his Premier League career as he will face the best midfielder in the league in Kevin de Bruyne. He was a bit steadier against City, and one of the few members of the defence who looked comfortable with the short-passing approach.

There is no rest for the tired in England's Premier League as the 2018-19 season is underway. Kyle Walker will overlap more for City than for England, where he was shifted inside into a back three.

Bernardo Silva has earned huge praise from Guardiola in pre-season and is expected to play a key role for City.

Unai Emery is clearly not afraid to experiment.

"We have to improve some movements but in general, in the moment we are, the desire to run, away at Arsenal - nobody can deny it's complicated", Pep explained in his post-match press conference.

"We saw him do well in the training session".
