Manchester City outclass Arsenal in Emery's first match in charge

  • Man City team news

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.

Pep Guardiola wants Raheem Sterling to stay at Manchester City as contract talks between both sides continue to drag amid reports the 23-year-old wants parity with top earners Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne. You can not say they are not contenders to win.

The former Valencia manager added: "I think he's finding out about his players".

The first game of the season for Liverpool is almost upon us and I couldn't be more excited!

"It was a challenge and obviously I was happy to get the nod - but nothing is finished".

"I think especially to start the Premier League against such a strong team here at Emirates Stadium and start well is important", Silva said.

When asked about Guardiola's side also playing out from the back, he replied: "When you're the best you can do it".

"Comparing how we played against them last season, we gave them a game".

"We didn't want them to feel comfortable and have the ball always at their feet so that they could control the game".

But it took City just over 10 minutes to find the opener, and they were helped by more poor Arsenal defending.

"Mendy has a lot of things to improve and hopefully we can convince him to forget a little bit the social media and improve a few things".

Wenger left Arsenal in a mess after last season's sixth-place finish and Emery acknowledged the gulf in class between City and his team showed how much work he could do.

"I believe we pushed them (City) more than Chelsea did in the Community Shield". He's working very well, he played also good in the preseason.

"The team, for 90 minutes, they ran, they tried, they pushed, but we need to improve all collective and individual aspects".

If you look broadly at our league rivals, it is fair to say that many of them have also done some good business, which is likely to make the league very competitive this season.

"It's utter rubbish to play like that all the time".
