5 things we learned from the Premier League weekend

AP     Emery

Lovely inter-link play from Mendy and Sterling, the former cuts it back to Silva who lashes it home with a first-time shot into the top corner.

Following tireless performances at Russian Federation 2018 let down by errant finishing, Sterling will have taken great satisfaction in launching City's bid for back-to-back titles with his 50th Premier League goal.

Look at what Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech did in the first half, almost kicking the ball into his own net.

"He has personality and quality and if he is on the pitch he is improving very quickly". This wasn't their greatest ever performance, but the fact they were so comfortable against a side that would realistically be wanting to challenge them, is paramount of just how good this Manchester City team is.

Arsenal are likely to press in the early stages, if Emery's approach against Guardiola in the past is anything to go by.

And the Arsenal manager has suggested that Cech will remain as his No.1 for the time being. He nearly delivered with his first touch, but his volley flashed wide of the upright.

And City, in their usual ruthless, unforgiving nature, would eventually punish the plethora of sloppy Arsenal play in the final third.

But on the evidence of this game, City look ready to break that trend. City were superior to Arsenal in every department.

Sarri admits £71 million Kepa is not at same level as Courtois
The Italy global barely misplaced a pass and orchestrated the visitors' approach by keeping himself open and barking out orders. Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has insisted that he is not looking to replicate his Napoli style at the club.

City have now lost only one away game in the league - at Liverpool - of their last 21, and manager Pep Guardiola felt their performance was close to ideal. This was a sensational victory.

Walker and Mendy are two of the most attack-minded full-backs in English football, with Walker, in particular, devastating down City's right at the Emirates.

De Bruyne's fellow Belgium worldwide Vincent Kompany is also on the bench, meaning January arrival Aymeric Laporte starts alongside John Stones at the back.

Guardiola, schooled by Johan Cruyff, craves winning in style.

"I want the players and supporters to feel that together, and also enjoy each match, each moment in our stadium, and in this way the team transmits to the supporters the passion".

While fans may have been hoping for an easier start to the campaign, some had said it may be the best time to play Pep Guardiola's men. He did it well, except the last 20 minutes when he was really exhausted. We trained just one week.

"He made some very good things in the World Cup, how he moved and created space for others".
