Expected Arsenal Lineup To Face Manchester City

Arsenal news Unai Emery

It's a fresh start for everyone at the club and what better way to continue the new found positivity surrounding Arsenal than with an opening day win against City.

It is expected that the former Sampdoria midfielder will start alongside Aaron Ramsey at the base of Arsenal's 4-2-3-1 formation. The Welshman just returned to training at the end of the week.

Koscielny is expected to return from a long-term Achilles injury in November. City beat the Gunners - home and away - with the minimum of fuss last season.

For Emery, the first question on his mind is whether he picks Petr Cech in goal or Bernd Leno.

Arsenal have turned to Unai Emery to replace Wenger at the north London side following the Frenchman's 22 seasons in charge.

City were without David Silva and Vincent Kompany at the Emirates while Kevin De Bruyne was only introduced as a second-half substitute.

Instead, Guardiola has opted to start Bernardo Silva in central midfield, while Riyad Mahrez makes his debut for City on the right flank. John Stones and Kyle Walker lines-up in defence along with Benjamin Mendy.

Benjamin Mendy, the archetypal "like a new signing" after missing nearly his entire debut campaign through injury, sometimes overlapped and sometimes drifted inside to form a midfield diamond.

Aguero is already off the mark for the season having scored twice in the Community Shield win over Chelsea last weekend, taking him past the 200-goal mark for City across all competitions.

Just a month after the World Cup ended in Russian Federation, it's back to domestic action as two of England's heavyweights meet at the Emirates on Sunday with Arsenal welcoming Manchester City to North London.

The Gunners entertain Pep Guardiola's champions at the Emirates on Sunday.

A team filled with elite talents in the prime of their careers, Manchester City have only achieved the bare minimum under Guardiola and their real test will come in Europe, although anything but a win against Arsenal will be a dampener for the champions.

Where is the Arsenal vs Manchester City, Premier League fixture being played?

Arsenal's defensive signings will give their forward players more freedom and Aubameyang is one to exploit this and torment the opposition.

This is a prediction based on recent Premier League form for both sides as well as their current head-to-head record.

"Arsenal are going to play this pressing game and could they catch City off guard?"

New Arsenal boss Unai Emery " He has enough experience to know exactly what [it takes].
