Welbeck at the back? Emery impressed by Danny's versatility

Welbeck at the back? Emery impressed by Danny's versatility

Experienced defender Per Mertesacker served as the Gunners' club captain before his retirement at the end of last season and now fellow centre-back Koscielny will take on the responsibility.

But Arsenal have a new manager and and some new players, and hopefully some surprising new tactics to try out on Pep Guardiola's team, and as discussed in the previous article they will also hopefully have a new fighting spirit as well.

Aaron Ramsey is an injury doubt but could start, and against such a creative opposition Emery may push Granit Xhaka into a slightly more advanced role to the left of a 4-3-3.

"Yes", Emery said when asked if Aubameyang should be challenging for the Golden Boot. They like and want to play and they know at our club they have to show me the good things every day.

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.

He said: "I think he'll realise it could have been worse".

It now remains to be seen whether the other Pokemon who can mega evolve from the Kanto region will receive this same treatment. These will be accessible in the same way as in previous games by players receiving a "key stone" at some point in the game.

The right back wasn't at his best last season and the Arsenal supporters hope that Stephan Lichtsteiner replaces him from the starting eleven but we don't expect Unai Emery to start the veteran right back in such an important match like this.

However, Manchester Evening News note that photographers did not see Silva amongst the squad who travelled to London for the highly anticipated match.

Arsenal finished sixth last season as they completed their campaign in dismal fashion. "Working to help when we need quick pressing against the opposition".

So there we go. I believe in me, I believe in the players, I believe in the club.

Their opponents for Sunday, Manchester City, splurged only on Riyad Mahrez - an able option to back-up the tactically intelligent, yet much-maligned Raheem Sterling but Pep Guardiola already has a system in place with nearly the entirety of his squad well-versed in his preferred style of play. "But my idea is to give us the best performance quickly".
