Kroenke's £550m offer to buy Alisher Usmanov's 30% stake has been accepted, meaning Kroenke will be able to make a compulsory purchase of the remaining shares.

The coach said he expected midfielder Ainsley Maitland-Niles to start in that position against City, although there was a small chance that Monreal would be ready.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has rubbished reports linking Mohamed Elneny with an Arsenal exit this summer, confirming the player's stay at the club.

The Spaniard said the players are looking forward to the new season with a sense of optimism and hopes to see that translated into a positive performance against the defending champions this weekend.

"My first message is clear: think about each match. With the same players and also our new players with us, and with a new culture and new staff".

'It is for that we are working this week, preparing this game and preparing the opposition.


"I have confidence in myself and I can give the confidence. I am going to decide tomorrow [Saturday] on the first 11, but Ainsley is the player who started the last match against Lazio".

Jenkinson and Campbell have had extensive periods away from the club on loan while goalkeeper Ospina is back-up to new signing Bernd Leno and Petr Cech. However, he ruled out the possibility of selling Danny Welbeck or Mohamed Elneny, also linked with moves.

The manager has been with the players for just three months but he has already made a good connection with the Arsenal players because they are all happy and following his philosophy as they hope to bring back old glory at the North London club. But in these two moments in the match we need to work.

Offloading Welbeck would also help the Gunners trim their wage bill, with Welbeck one of the bigger earners at the club, on a reported £115,000 a week.

And the former Paris Saint-Germain and Sevilla coach has stressed the importance of Arsenal being on the front foot.
