Unai Emery makes two shock selections for first Arsenal game

Dennis Wise is not convinced by Arsenal’s summer business

'We can do our job, yes, but maybe Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea can do their job better and win, reflects Guardiola.

However, if Emery can sort out Arsenal's defensive problems then they could be a force to be reckoned with, such is the quality they possess in attacking positions. How many 35-year-olds are playing in the Premier League? A full list of TV coverage from around the world can be found here. I'm not sure Danny Welbeck at left-back was quite the change they expected when Emery was announced as their new manager but hey, needs must. "But we are starting a new way, and a new process", he said.

There's also another big absence in the middle, where Laurent Koscielny is sidelined until 2019, but a new face as arrived in Sokratis Papastathopoulos. Hector Bellerin, meanwhile, will need all his speed against Leroy Sane. Fernandinho, Kevin De Bruyne and a Silva - either David or Bernardo - is a familiar trio for the away side. Arsenal are likely to welcome another debutant, the feisty but creative Lucas Torreira, in their deepest role. The new boss also selected Petr Cech, Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Granit Xhaka to be part of the leadership group.

While Sokratis will be the tasked with the responsibility of stopping Sergio Aguero, the onus will be on John Stones to deal with the sheer pace of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Gunners have been unbeaten in pre-season and have scored a hatfull of goals, and Emery himself believes that there is some optimism around the squad. The title is City's to lose, but they'll be hoping for more than just back-to-back championships in England.

Crucial to this game's outcome is how Emery approaches his first game. Ederson, meanwhile, has a very long kick he's not afraid to showcase, despite City's focus on possession.

Huddersfield Town 0 Chelsea 3: Disappointing result, not display, claims Wagner
Last season Huddersfield survived with just 28 goals. "We kept them away from our goal and as I said they scored out of nothing". Higuain was heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge this summer but ultimately signed for AC Milan on loan from Juventus.

"For me, that is the best message I can give the supporters".

The Arsenal vs Manchester City, Premier League match will be played at the Emirates Stadium in London.

Unai Emery is set for a baptism of fire in his first competitive match in charge of Arsenal against the reigning champions and first ever team to hit 100 points in one season. That said though this is still a tricky opener for the Champions.
