City midfielder has a huge chance to shine against Arsenal

  • Unai Emery spoke exclusively to Sky Sports about his blueprint for Arsenal going forward

It was expected that Maitland-Niles would cover for left-back after injuries to both Kolasinac and Monreal, but Emery has hinted that may go to Danny Welbeck!

At 26 years old, the signing of Leno provides top quality competition for the ageing Cech in goal, while Emiliano Martinez's return from a loan spell with Getafe means that he'll nearly certainly be third choice.

Defensive errors will need to be cut out if they want to challenge at the top this season, with Sokratis Papastathopoulos being brought in to solidify a leaky back four. Emery, known for creating well-drilled sides, will have impressed on them the importance of pressing high and hard and then counter-attacking swiftly.

It's been a good pre-season by all accounts and a full-season of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would suggest goals won't be a problem.

Despite last season's stunning achievements, Guardiola was his usual guarded self when talking about City's prospects for the year ahead, believing as many as five other teams could prevent him from becoming the first manager in a decade to retain the title. "There was a gap last season but this season I don't know". Emery tends to shift between 4-3-3 and 4-2-3-1, but probably needs three solid midfielders against this City side.

"After Laurent, our other captains are Petr Cech, Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Granit Xhaka". Emery's obsession with tactical systems bodes well for the Gunners who have always seemed lost at the first hint of resistance on pitch. Sergio Aguero hit the ground running with a brace in the Community Shield win and will lead the line against Arsenal.

Unai Emery is set for a baptism of fire in his first competitive match in charge of Arsenal against the reigning champions and first ever team to hit 100 points in one season. Live streaming is available on NBC Sports live, which you can access with your cable or satellite subscriptions, either online or through the NBC Sports app. City, I think, after two years of working with Guardiola they have more stability, more security and when you watch City's matches, they are playing with a very, very great confidence in themselves.
