Man City: Ederson, Walker, Stones, Laporte, Mendy, Fernandinho, Gündogan, Bernardo, Mahrez (De Bruyne 60'), Sterling (Sane 87'), Agüero (Jesus 79').

The match will be the the first Arsenal game in 22 years to be managed by anyone other than Arsene Wenger, who helmed the club from 1996 until he stepped aside following a frustrating 2017-2018 campaign.

Victory ensured that Guardiola continues to have the Indian sign over his opposite number, with Sunday's win his seventh in 11 matches against his fellow Spaniard Emery. Still, there's plenty of time to improve for the season - but hard work is an absolute must.

Stopping it, however, is another story. Attack us, and we can break in devastating fashion.

"He trained just one week but we needed him today, and he did so well except when he was very exhausted at the end".

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.

Ilkay Gundogan (7/10): Tried his best to influence the game but was often isolated by the Arsenal midfielders. Those two will will provide protection behind our stellar cast of attackers.

Arsenal are likely to press in the early stages, if Emery's approach against Guardiola in the past is anything to go by. The former Sevilla and PSG boss has forged a reputation as one of the most demanding and hard-working managers in Europe, who builds sides in his own image.

Performing equally well, pacer Chris Woakes dismissed 2 batsmen, while Stuart Broad and Sam Curran clinched 1 wickets each. Sometimes the rub of the green goes your way when it doesn't a quality side will make it count.

Manchester City have launched the 2018/19 home kit!

As in last week's Community Shield win over Chelsea by the same scoreline, the only blot on the Premier League champions' copybook was that the scoreline did not reflect their superiority and utter control.

Raheem Sterling gave City the lead in a first half they dominated. He is a good manager and it is good for the Premier League.

I don't think this game will be a tale of Arsenal's season, and I wouldn't write off their chances against Chelsea either. City are working three years with Guardiola, building a team with good players and great stability.

"When we were in Spain each match against Barcelona with Valencia is very exciting and very demanding for me also to prepare this match".

"I am 46, he is 47".

"We wanted to be professional, we wanted to make it serious like last season. His career as a coach is bigger than me".

Pep Guardiola's side swept to the title last term with a record 100 points and they were quickly back in the groove at the Emirates Stadium. "Now, when I say something to them, they know exactly what we have to do".
