New Arsenal boss Unai Emery could start Danny Welbeck at left-back against current champions Manchester City as the Gunners' first choice full-backs Nacho Monreal and Saed Kolasinac are out injured for this afternoon's game.

Man City's domestic success has been well documented over the last few years, while Arsenal have failed to finish in the top four of the EPL in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 1996.

Mahrez was inches away from opening his account three minutes before half time when he curled a left-footed effort just past Cech's far post as City continued to dominate, but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's effort nearly brought Arsenal level moments later but his long-distance strike sailed just wide.

Raheem Sterling gave the visitors the lead inside 15 minutes when he cut inside Hector Bellerin before firing the ball past a near-motionless Petr Cech in the Arsenal goal. Riyad Mahrez took the resulting free-kick and forced a save from Cech low down to his right, before the Arsenal stopper reacted quickly to deny Aymeric Laporte's close-range follow up with an instinctive stop.

That Arsenal's performance was somewhat disjointed shouldn't detract from City's display. He didn't play in Manchester City's win over Chelsea in the Community Shield.

FW Alexandre Lacazette, 6 - Came on for Ramsey and provided a much-needed focal point. Going forward, things were made particularly hard for him by the absence of a natural left-back to lend him support.

Alli leads Tottenham past Newcastle
Newcastle: Dubravka 7, Yedlin 7, Clark 7, Lascelles 6, Dummett 6, Diame 6, Shelvey 8, Ritchie 7, Perez 6, Kenedy 6, Joselu 6. Spurs threatened to add another on the break late on but Newcastle were also creating chances.

Wenger departed having managed more matches than any manager in Premier League history - winning three league titles and a record seven FA Cup championships in his remarkable career, according to the Premier League site.

There is no rest for the tired in England's Premier League as the 2018-19 season is underway.

What frustrated Arsenal fans most was that Emery started Xhaka ahead of the £27m summer signing Lucas Torreira, who was sat on the bench.

Pep Guardiola's team are fancied once more, and who'd put it past them to be lifting the title again in May. City were superior to Arsenal in every department. City's left-back missed nearly the entirety of last season through injury, and his overlapping will bring an extra dimension to City's attacking play. But, newly appointed head coach Unai Emery will face a stern test against the defending champions, who are keen to maintain their dominance in English football. But in these two moments in the match, we need to work.

"What I saw in the last training sessions and Chelsea and Arsenal games is we are still there".
