New Arsenal head coach Unai Emery will be hoping Aaron Ramsey is fit for his first game in charge as Premier League champions Manchester City visit the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

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. 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'.

Here's how to watch Manchester City vs. Arsenal online.

That less than prolific strike-rate, however, does not tell the story of a massive improvement in front of goal since Pep Guardiola took over at the Etihad.

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.

'People say we have to forget what we did last season.

"My main thing is to start the Premier League, the cup, the Europa League and then my objective is to improve each player with their qualities and our work with them".

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has made Laurent Koscielny captain of the club despite his long-term injury, and named Mesut Ozil among his four other co-captains.

The saga concerning Aaron Ramsey's contract situation is yet to come to a close but fans will be thankful that the Wales global enters the season with the club and has battled back from a knock to be in contention to feature on Sunday. I'm not sure Danny Welbeck at left-back was quite the change they expected when Emery was announced as their new manager but hey, needs must.

However, Manchester Evening News note that photographers did not see Silva amongst the squad who travelled to London for the highly anticipated match.

The Gunners will be without Sead Kolasinac who suffered a knee injury during a pre-season match against Chelsea, and also Nacho Monreal who only recently returned to full training. If he does start, Manchester City must be licking their lips with Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling both looking to target the stand-in full-back.
