Arsenal start their post-Wenger period with a serious test at home to the Premier League champions, so the Gunners must be up to speed with Unai Emery's tactical approach very quickly.

City broke several records last season, most points, most goals scored, biggest title-winning margin but it will be more hard for them this season.

Emery was hired to replace Wenger following the Frenchman's exit at the end of a dismal campaign which saw Arsenal labour to a sixth-place finish in the Premier League. It's about the mix, when you have a defensive or attacking moment, and I want every player to improve in this way.

"When we were in Spain each match against Barcelona with Valencia is very exciting and very demanding for me also to prepare for this match".

'What we have done last season doesn't mean that now we are going to win this'.

"A final you have to try to win it and we prepared for it like it was a game in April, May".

A cynic might suggest Emery's feat of winning the Europa League three years in a row with Sevilla was the most relevant achievement on his CV prior to his appointment at Arsenal - who will compete in Europe's second-tier competition for a second successive season. "My idea is to give us the best performance". I've said many time that I'm not a special guy but I am so good at working, working, working, and they have to work too'.

Pep Guardiola has been speaking to the media at his pre-match press conference this afternoon and the new boss has offered a full team news and injury update ahead of the game.

Guardiola believes the culture will help the team at hard points this season.

"That's the basic principle".

"Now, when I say something to the players, they know exactly what we have to do". But if we do our job, we will be there. "He will play an outstanding part for City on the back of an unbelievable World Cup". "No way", said Guardiola. Maybe Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea can do their job better - but if we do our job, we will be there.

"Forget how much Liverpool have spent because they may have spent a lot but last season they were a good team as well". We can not deny the other contenders. Whether it's on the left with Lacazette through the middle, or both players starting alongside each other as central striking options, there can be no doubt that, with the likes of Mesut Ozil, Mkhitaryan, Lacazette and Aubameyang in the team, Arsenal are spoilt for choice in attack.
