Pep Guardiola: 'Manchester City will get better and better'

Arsenal team news

England forward Raheem Sterling only came back on Monday but opened the scoring with a 14th-minute goal at the Emirates Stadium before Bernardo Silva wrapped up a 2-0 win with a second-half strike. Gray did note that Emery needs time to adjust, but based on that performance Arsenal are way off the pace.

Neville, Souness and Scott also discussed the performance of the Reds and whether they can challenge Man City, as well as Manuel Pellegrini's debut as West Ham manager.

City look as hungry as ever despite their record-breaking success last season, when they won the title with a record 100 points and also lifted the League Cup.

"We saw [Sterling] good in the training session and we needed someone in that position and he did it well although he exhausted in the last 20-25 minutes", the City boss added.

I don't think this game will be a tale of Arsenal's season, and I wouldn't write off their chances against Chelsea either. "I'm a trainer", Guardiola said.

"Emery has had longer with his team than anyone else - they've largely all been together for the whole of pre-season - and they could potentially cause an upset against City on day one".

"There's been a lot of talking so I got a little celebration in there".

And it felt like they seamlessly continued that form as they comfortably defeated an Arsenal side looking slightly disjointed in their first competitive match under Unai Emery.

Emery names Koscielny Arsenal captain
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". Kyle Walker will overlap more for City than for England, where he was shifted inside into a back three. "We are happy.

Somewhat criticised of Wenger in his latter stages of the Arsenal tenure is the lack of tactical preparation he gave to his team ahead of a big fixture against their rivals.

"It was a shame we couldn't finish off our counter attacks and overall we're disappointed with the defeat".

Arsenal manager Unai Emery on the difference between Manchester City and his team.

"We need to continue working". For me it's very important he stays with us.

"We arrived after a hard season [in 2016, when Guardiola had made a point of contacting Sterling during Euro 2016 to offer his support] and I told him I wanted to help him and would like him to be happy".

Speaking after the match he said: "There was a good ambience here with our supporters".

The Spaniard will need time to reshape the team and, given the warm applause from numerous home fans still in Emirates Stadium by the final whistle, the majority of supporters are encouraged enough to afford it.
