Arsenal begin life without Arsene Wenger, who served as manager for 22 years. The Gunners have new coach for the new season, but looks like they have very weak team. Unai Emery will try to transform Arsenal in this season, but he must do a lot of things first. Pre-season results have been positive for Arsenal, but now they will play with the Titans and it will be a hard job for the Gunners. Arsenal conceded in eight of their last ten home games in the Premier League last season, but they have played very well in attack. Games against Man City and Chelsea in the opening two weeks of the new season are strong tests for Emery and The Gunners must win at least once. Aubameyang scored 10 goals and assisted four more in only 1058 Premier League minutes and he will be the most dangerous player in Gunners' squad on Sunday.
On the other side Manchester City have played fantastic football in the previous season and they are the champs. They have won 31 of their last 36 matches and like to play offensive and attractive football. Man City have not been terribly active in the transfer market with just one signing so far - Riyad Mahrez. Manchester City showed their strength in depth last weekend when they beat Chelsea 2-0 in the Community Shield. Citizens played strong football last season and did concede in five of their last eight away trips. They have won 16 of their 19 away games last season.
When it comes to their mutual encounters Manchester City have lost just one of their last six meetings with Arsenal. The Gunners have won just two of their last 12 against City.
Arsenal manager Unai Emery says: "Man City are playing with a very, very great confidence in themselves. I think, after two years of working with Guardiola, City have more stability and more security. Also, I think that it's a big and great match that we can play to start this season."
Citizens managers Pep Guardiola: "Unai Emery is an excellent manager. What he achieved with Sevilla, winning three Europa Leagues in a row – it’s good for the Premier League."
