Manchester City make Emery suffer in his Premier League debut

Raheem Sterling

The Germany global was left on the bench, though, as Pep Guardiola's side prevailed courtesy of goals from Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva.

Emery set up Arsenal to break quickly against City, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang the spearhead supported by Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Mkhitaryan. What a start to his and City's season. "But to win the way we won is more than a compliment to our team and staff".

"Also, Leno is starting with us". Arsenal substitute Alexandre Lacazette then went close for the hosts. He nearly delivered with his first touch, but his volley flashed wide of the upright.

Benjamin Mendy burst down City's left and picked out Bernardo Silva on the penalty spot, and the winger arrowed a first-time finish into the top corner.

The Premier League match between Arsenal and Manchester City will be broadcast live on NBCSN. This was where we left off last season: electric going forward, but capable of slowing the game down and dominating the ball when necessary. The game provided a lot of tactical features that stood out.

City ready to buck the trend?

. On his day, there are not many like him in the Premier League.

Indeed, the reigning champions have ended the following season outside the top four in each of the last three years.

The Spaniard did return to full training a few days ago, but could be shot of fitness for the City game.

A more aggressive press was in evidence and drew appreciation from the crowd but the tactic of playing out from the back - Cech looking particularly uneasy - played horribly into the hands of a City side who delight in hounding their opponents into mistakes.

The England forward was outstanding despite having been back in training for less than a week after his exertions in Russian Federation and scored the opening goal as Arsenal, under new management, were swept aside at the Emirates. City were superior to Arsenal in every department.

In steps Unai Emery, the Spanish manager who recently led French giants Paris Saint-Germain, attempting to fill some pretty big shoes at the Emirates. This was a sensational victory.

"We knew we had to go and get the second because they started the second half very strong".

Guardiola added: "People only judge players on the goals they score at the World Cup, but Raheem has this special relation with English football, he's so loved in the locker room".

"Of course we have to improve some movements but in general to be in the moment of the season that we are and to show the desire to run and was the same as last season". He did it well, except the last 20 minutes when he was really exhausted. People spoke to me when I arrived saying it's like this or like that, but I discovered many things during the process, watching what happens.
