Danny Welbeck tested as Arsenal left-back

Emery will take charge of the Gunners in a competitive match for the first time on Sunday afternoon when the Premier League champions travel to the Emirates Stadium.

Manager Pep Guardiola will have Benjamin Mendy available for selection after the full-back missed a large portion of last season with an injury.

"What we'll see Arsenal do more this season is win games tactically".

While others bemoaned their lack of signings and questioned their club hierarchy's pre-season preparations, most notably Guardiola's nemesis in the red half of Manchester Jose Mourinho, the Catalan had nothing but praise for his squad and his employers, saying "I can not complain for one minute".

"I am focused on that, not focused on back-to-back (titles)".

"Because of what we did last season now we are going to win?" Why not try it again?

Arsenal were handed a hard start to the season when they hosted Manchester City on the opening weekend of the Premier League campaign.

Let us discuss three key duels that could go a long way in deciding the outcome of this game.

Instead, he has told his players to use their form of a year ago - in which they also set records for most points, wins and goals in the Premier League era - to launch another championship charge. The £60m signing from Leicester had 48 touches of the ball in the first half and tested Petr Cech with a low free-kick too but it was not a completely convincing performance from him on his Premier League debut for City. "We believe we have a good squad". But for me, I want to enjoy the way [we do it]. It's excellent. They are excellent human beings.

Stones and Laporte are two centre-halves committed to bringing the ball out of defence and looking to play passes between the lines, and behind them they have a goalkeeper who could easily play outfield if necessary. "There was a gap last season but this season I don't know".

The Gunners appointed Emery early in the summer so he had ample time to prepare, but he was not the Arsenal board's first choice and their primary target, Mikel Arteta, will take his seat on the visitors' bench on Sunday.

City kick off the league campaign with one "title" already in their trophy cabinet, after last weekend's comfortable Community Shield victory over Chelsea.
