Emery Expects Tough Arsenal, City Premier League Debut

12 August 2018

"Arsenal turned to former Sevilla and Paris Saint-Germain coach Emery to replace Wenger and the Spaniard welcomes Guardiola's Manchester City to Emirates Stadium on Sunday for his side's first match of the new campaign".

City were almost flawless last time out, winning the league with a record number of points (100), goals (106) and points margin (19).

Returning to the Champions League via a top-four finish in the Premier League will be Emery's main target, yet knocking one of City, Manchester United, Liverpool or Tottenham from those positions, and also overtaking Chelsea, is a tough proposition.

Alongside him is the sort of player Arsenal have needed for a while, with Uruguay World Cup ace Lucas Torreira arriving to compete in a combative role for the Gunners and providing extra protection to a defence that was far too frail last season. 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. No way. I don't want to forget that.

"That's the basic principle". 'He has enough experience to know exactly what [it takes].

It's a fresh start for everyone at the club and what better way to continue the new found positivity surrounding Arsenal than with an opening day win against City.

However, this could be a good time to play them. Asked if the response showed he has created the ideal culture, the 46-year-old said: "Yes, of course - that's the dream".

"But winning helps to win more". You don't choose titles and it (Community Shield) was a final and we spoke about that. "It is impossible to have a season that is flawless".

"We will have bad moments and we will have to work to overcome them because in the end the players react to what the club is, what the manager and the staff are".

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. "There was a gap last season but this season I don't know". We can not deny the other contenders. "The results I don't know, but the process of being together is nice". Arsenal are other contenders too.

"But if we do our job, we will be there".

"City topped the table by 19 points last time around - 37 clear of Arsenal - but Guardiola, who will not be offering any words of advice to his opposite number this weekend, is confident the men from north London will be in the mix come the end of the season".
