'#WengerIn' - Arsenal fans divided after defeat to Manchester City

Don't forget we're the best Guardiola tells City stars

The major issue is at left-back, where Sead Kolasinac is definitely out and Nacho Monreal is considered doubtful, which may mean Ainsley Maitland-Niles starting.

The first round of Premier League fixtures have already kicked off and the biggest game of the weekend is arguably between Arsenal and Manchester City.

Manchester City have no injury concerns but there are questions over a few squad members match fitness following their late returns to pre-season training.

Forward Riyad Mahrez could make his league debut for the club following his £60million summer move from Leicester. But City, fresh from their record points total last season, started 2018-19 with an incredibly dominant victory at the Emirates with goals in either half from Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva.

Arsenal will step out under new a manager for the first time since 1996.

The Argentine came up against the Gunners on three occasions last season and directly contributed to a goal in each of those, registering one assist and scoring twice himself - including once in the EFL Cup final. Their defence will be even stronger this season too, especially after the World Cup campaign's Kyle Walker and John Stones had. Ederson is expected to replace Claudio Bravo in goal after the Chilean started City's Community Shield win over Chelsea.

Manager Pep Guardiola will have Benjamin Mendy available for selection after the full-back missed a large portion of last season with an injury. The two had met on 10 previous occasions with Guardiola never losing a game against Emery. Here, City kept a high defensive line and yet largely kept Arsenal in front of them; only one early incident, when Laporte should have been booked for a cynical hack on Aubemeyang, suggested indiscipline.

"Forget how much Liverpool have spent because they may have spent a lot, but last season they were a good team as well".

When is Arsenal vs Manchester City in Premier League? If Arsenal play a defensively tight game, then they have the individual quality in them to stop Manchester City from winning, but based on merit, City will take the win at the Emirates.
