No quick fix for Arsenal: Emery era begins with loss to City

No quick fix for Arsenal: Emery era begins with loss to City

Those that know him say Emery watches 12 hours of video for each game, and you can expect the Arsenal players to watch a good few hours too preparing for this match.

If he does start, Manchester City must be licking their lips with Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling both looking to target the stand-in full-back.

It was a serene afternoon on the touchline for Guardiola, just like so much of last season which ended with City setting a series of Premier League records, notably by amassing 100 points.

Manchester City will look to start its title defense on the right foot after putting up one of the finest seasons in Premier League history previous year as it put up an astounding 100 points by winning 32 of 38 matches.

Manchester City laid down a marker to their title rivals with a comfortable 2-0 win against Arsenal, prompting manager Pep Guardiola to claim he was "privileged" to manage the Premier League champions.

"The first half we didn't play like we wanted".


"We are not going to judge what is going to happen after one game but we try to respond, we try to be ourselves". Of course our average level is high, but I have a feeling still we can improve.

Installed as heavy favourites to finish top again - which would make them the first team to defend the title since Manchester United in 2008-09 - City's ruthless performance was ominous for their rivals.

"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. And we count on him.

Unai Emery has declared his desire to keep Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey at Arsenal, but insists he will not be the one to handle the contract negotiations. "And today is the first step in that". 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]. "Then, the contract is for speaking with the club and the players".

We've all seen how nonchalant Hazard can be when scoring from the spot, waiting for the goalkeeper to move and commit himself before casually rolling the ball in the opposite corner. "And the second half is the moment we had chances for doing a better result".
