Pep Guardiola seeking resolution to Raheem Sterling contract talks at Manchester City

Unai Emery has brought five new stars to the Emirates

"But I think this process today is normal, especially against a team like Manchester City".

Guardiola took time to settle too, but he answered his critics last season and his team's performance in the Community Shield suggested that they are raring to go once more.

He rewarded Pep Guardiola's faith with a lively showing and a clinically dispatched 14th-minute opener.

FW Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, 6 - In Aubameyang, Arsenal have the kind of striker who can be a peripheral figure without service.

Emery's arrival, along with acquisitions like Bernd Leno and Lucas Torreira, had many Gooners optimistic about what they can achieve this season.

But the veteran goalkeeper was grasping at fresh air when Sterling sashayed inside to lash home a shot from the edge of the box.

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

Arsenal rarely threatened as an attacking force until the introduction of Alexandre Lacazette for the willing but unrewarded Aaron Ramsey early in the second half.

"Now he is at Arsenal, one of the best teams in England, and he is a contender to win titles".

Benjamin Mendy has been playing down the left halfspace in an inverted manner, helping City out while in possession by moving forward high up the pitch.

Emery, meanwhile, will know he has much to do, even before a hard derby with Chelsea next weekend.

While the rest of the league attempted to reload in order to give the Citizens a run for their money, Manchester City splashed plenty of cash of its own, signing winger Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City for a club-record $76.6 million. But his passing was increasingly wayward and the air-kick that let Aguero through spoke of mental and physical fatigue. More support from the abject Granit Xhaka would not have gone amiss.

Mark Hughes booted a water bottle in frustration as Southampton opened the Premier League season with a 0-0 draw against Burnley on Sunday.

Kyle Walker (8/10): A strong display from the English global, who made the most number of clearances than any Manchester City player on the pitch.

Emery praised the 27-year-old former Manchester United player who featured in 28 Premier League matches last term, coming off the bench in 16 matches - but for his value as a utlitiy player.

Sterling cupped his ears to the Arsenal fans in celebration of his goal but said it was a response to all those critics who suggested the 23-year-old had failed to live up to his Manchester City form while on worldwide duty in Russian Federation this summer.
