Everton linked with Welbeck move with Arsenal ready to sell

Arsenal Manager Unai Emery

Arsenal Manager Unai Emery

Arsenal are without a victory in their last five league meetings with Manchester City (D2 L3), and have won just two of their last 12 against the Blues (D5 L5).

Referring to his summer signings - goalkeeper Bernd Leno, defenders Stephan Lichtsteiner and Sokratis Papastathopoulos and midfielders Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi - Emery insists balance is the aim.

However, Emery is a coach famed for his tactical nous and attention to detail, with Carragher reckoning that it will be a very different Arsenal we see in the Premier League this season - even comparing the Gunners boss to master tactician, Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez.

Arsenal's director of high performance, Darren Burgess, has provided an insight into Arsenal's training in pre-season.

For now, Emery is simply looking to build an identity and improve.

"We need two things: quality players, which we have, and then organisation".

"He's very particular on player positioning, depending on where the ball is in certain areas of the pitch".

Arsenal's Emery will need to reverse a awful recent record for the club against City, however, if the new era in north London is not to start in disappointing fashion.

Speaking on a recent episode of the show, he said: "Aaron Ramsey is a player who has been an exceptional servant to Arsenal".

No one needs to be reminded of how Guardiola's team blew everyone out of the title race past year, and they are huge favorites going into this match.

As Southampton aim to put a disappointing 2017/18 season behind them, the acquisition of an England worldwide forward would have been a massive boost. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has also won both of his first two Premier League Matchweek 1 contests and will be more than ready to start his title defense with a bang. While Arsenal's attack may be stellar, their defence is really really poor and City should be able to slice through it at will and create a lot of chances. The ability for both him and De Bryune to drop deeper was a key to City's success, but both still provided end product as well, with Silva getting nine goals and 11 assists in 2437 minutes.
