4 key takeaways from Arsenal's 0-2 loss against Manchester City

4 key takeaways from Arsenal's 0-2 loss against Manchester City

Pep Guardiola insists Raheem Sterling is a player Manchester City count on and wants him to stay at the Etihad Stadium.

But in the end it was not to be and Emery was honest in his analysis of the game.

Emery's men struggled to break down a typically solid City back four, which possessed the new centre-back partnership of Laporte and John Stones.

With the addition of Mahrez, they have an even better squad than they did last season.

And, despite just a week of sessions on the practice pitch, City picked up where they left off last term with a confident display that easily put Arsenal to the sword.

The Spaniard began his reign as Arsenal manager with a loss as goals from Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva sealed a 2-0 victory for the Premier League champions.

But Emery defended his keeper, saying: "Cech had a very good pre-season and today he played good also". Who knows, they could be City's greatest challenge if they come through the first two fixtures unscathed.

The second half started in much the same fashion and Aguero had the first chance when he saw his shot deflected out for a corner. "Mendy has a lot of things to improve and hopefully we can convince him to be calm, to forget a little bit the social media and focus on what he has to do".

By contrast, Saturday " s play started under sunny blue skies that promised to make life easier for the batsmen. When Jos Buttler went for 24 - Shami's third leg-before wicket - England looked capable of crumbling again.

Starting off the season for both teams, it was a hard fixture, with both of the teams missing many of there regular players.

And it felt like they seamlessly continued that form as they comfortably defeated an Arsenal side looking slightly disjointed in their first competitive match under Unai Emery. "Hopefully we can convince him to be calm and forget the social media!"

Pep Guardiola was delighted that Manchester City came through a hard opening day at Arsenal with a victory after being without so many of his players during the preseason.

"I am happy with the players because they ran and [showed] fight".

"We wanted to start here with our supporters", he said.

I was surprised to see Petr Cech starting this match, as I thought new signing Bernd Leno would get the nod. So we need to look at it that way.

The Spaniard will need time to reshape the team and, given the warm applause from numerous home fans still in Emirates Stadium by the final whistle, the majority of supporters are encouraged enough to afford it.
