Unai Emery explains Arsenal’s "aggressive" plan to become Premier League champions again

Just a month after the World Cup ended in Russian Federation, it's back to domestic action as two of England's heavyweights meet at the Emirates on Sunday with Arsenal welcoming Manchester City to North London. Both services require credit card information and subscription fees, but each offers a seven-day free trial, and if the subscription is canceled prior to the expiration of that weeklong period, fans can watch the Arsenal vs. Manchester City match live stream for free.

Bernardo Silva killed off Arsenal in the second half with this lovely, powerful finish. Emery will need time, but there was evidence of his organisational streak coming into play.

Arsenal will face the previous season's English top flight champions in their opening match for the first time since 1970, the BBC notes, when the Gunners host Manchester City.

The gulf between City and Arsenal was plain to see. The fire in Pep Guardiola's belly burns hotter than ever, they say; there'll be no letting up as they look to become the first team to retain the title since 2009, and three points here - however they come - would lay down a marker to anyone who things that 19-point margin can be chewed away at this time around. On this evidence, Emery also has lots of work to do to ensure the Gunners have a robust-enough defence to challenge seriously for the top four. With Sead Kolasinac's knee injury keeping him out of action for the next two months, Nacho Monreal is the natural replacement for the Bosnian.

"We wanted to show our performance but it is clear against Manchester City we could not give them this win". 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.

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.

Arsenal's main concern going into the weekend will be the fitness of Aaron Ramsey.

Given the truncated preseason he's had after heavy World Cup involvement, his energy and enthusiasm were impressive.

FW Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, 6 - In Aubameyang, Arsenal have the kind of striker who can be a peripheral figure without service.

"We wanted to be professional, we wanted to make it serious like last season". But it's just one game [in the Premier League]. The former Borussia Dortmund man arguably looked livelier playing from the flank in the second half.

Bernd Leno has been made to wait for his Arsenal debut. Alexandre Lacazette will start for Arsenal as their central striker.
