Emery names Koscielny Arsenal captain

Jamie Redknapp

What a start to his and City's season. Emery clearly told the players to play out from the back but they didn't look comfortable and gave away possession on numerous occasions.

The new manager, the Telegraph said, confirmed that Laurent Koscielny, now out injured, would be his main captain, but that he would be backed up by Petr Cech, Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Granit Xhaka. Alexandre Lacazette will start for Arsenal as their central striker. He nearly delivered with his first touch, but his volley flashed wide of the upright.

Aguero should have doubled City's lead when he was clean through - but Cech made a crucial intervention after coming off his line to deny the Argentine.

Perhaps the other big positive is that there were clear signs of a plan behind Arsenal's play.

Maitland-Niles isn't a natural left-back, although was deployed there on various occasions last season, and his right-footedness might help if Guardiola deploys Riyad Mahrez on the right flank, as the Algerian is always attempting to drift inside onto his left.

Since joining the club earlier this year the striker has scored 10 goals in just 13 league games. Unai Emery will be disappointed to start with a defeat, but sometimes the quality of the opposition simply has to be accepted.

In truth, there were several candidates - but Bernardo once again produced a high-octane performance that dazzled.

Arsenal have an outside chance of securing a top four finish this season, Martin Keown has claimed. He was a bit steadier against City, and one of the few members of the defence who looked comfortable with the short-passing approach. Kyle Walker will overlap more for City than for England, where he was shifted inside into a back three.

"We are happy. It was a fantastic win for us". City were superior to Arsenal in every department. But, newly appointed head coach Unai Emery will face a stern test against the defending champions, who are keen to maintain their dominance in English football. This was a sensational victory. Danilo is expected to miss the opening games of the season with an ankle injury.

Guardiola, schooled by Johan Cruyff, craves winning in style. We need four on the top level.

"What I saw in the last training sessions and Chelsea and Arsenal games is we are still there". He did it well, except the last 20 minutes when he was really exhausted.

"It's just one of those things".
