Pep Guardiola - Manchester City desire vs. Arsenal 'same as last season'

12 August, 2018, 22:46 | Author: Heidi Alvarez

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

The match will be the the first Arsenal game in 22 years to be managed by anyone other than Arsene Wenger, who helmed the club from 1996 until he stepped aside following a frustrating 2017-2018 campaign.

Just a month after the World Cup ended in Russian Federation, it's back to domestic action as two of England's heavyweights meet at the Emirates on Sunday with Arsenal welcoming Manchester City to North London.

Bernd Leno is expected to be preferred in goal to Petr Cech, with Shkodran Mustafi and Sokratis the centre-back pairing.

'What we have done last season doesn't mean that now we are going to win this'.

Initially Kevin de Bruyne and David Silva were the tipped partnership in the centre of midfield, however a prolonged rest for both players means the Portugal global should enter the fray for the Sky Blues' season opener.

Arsenal have plenty of options in attack, and Emery, to bring the best out of Mesut Ozil, will likely place him in his preferred No. 10 position.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles replaced Kolasinac when the Bosnian full-back came off injured in a preseason clash with Chelsea two weeks ago and it remains possible that the youngster will start against City. Emery tends to shift between 4-3-3 and 4-2-3-1, but probably needs three solid midfielders against this City side. Danilo is expected to miss the opening games of the season with an ankle injury.

Guardiola's side might become more technical at the back this season, with Aymeric Laporte and John Stones seemingly his first-choice combination, with the more rugged Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi back-ups. The title is City's to lose, but they'll be hoping for more than just back-to-back championships in England. Arsenal must watch long balls over the top, however - Aguero has punished them in that manner in the past, particularly in this year's Carabao Cup final. "I didn't intentionally go in to make a bad challenge", he added.

Arsenal will face the previous season's English top flight champions in their opening match for the first time since 1970, the BBC notes, when the Gunners host Manchester City.

Unai Emery is clearly not afraid to experiment.

'Also he has this experience to continue defending our goal.
