You will look at games and say "That's the manager, he has set up a certain way".

Arsenal will certainly have to improve though, as in the last two seasons we have taken only one point off Pep Guardiola's men and were destroyed in the League Cup Final. EPL 2018-19: Jan Vertonghen's Header During Newcastle vs Tottenham Crossed the Line by Just 9mm.

The clash could see the marquee signings from both sides feature for their respective teams.

Preferred to summer signing Bernd Leno, Cech went some way to making amends for his shaky start to the season by pushing away a low Riyad Mahrez free-kick and then blocking Aymeric Laporte's close-range follow-up.

"The captain of this group is Laurent Koscielny, who is injured at the moment", he told the club's official website. 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.

Sterling was allowed to cut in from the left and slot home while Silva roamed in the box before tucking home Benjamin Mendy's cross.

All that's changed for Arsenal fans is that they can no longer blame Arsene Wenger.

Arsenal attempted a high press in the first half and tested City's ability to pass the ball out from the back.

David Silva is a big worry for City, as he is still nursing an injury while also being absent from the entirety of City's pre-season and will definitely be absent for the Arsenal game.
