Arsenal have one of their most significant challenges of the season with their opening game against Manchester City at the Emirates on Sunday to kick-start the Unai Emery era.

City were almost ideal last time out, winning the league with a record number of points (100), goals (106) and points margin (19).

Three points and early momentum in the title race.

Koscielny usually wore the armband last season as well, as club captain Per Mertesacker rarely played.

The Spaniard starred for Pep Guardiola's side as they completely dominated the Premier League last season. "But we are starting a new way, and a new process", he said.

While Sokratis will be the tasked with the responsibility of stopping Sergio Aguero, the onus will be on John Stones to deal with the sheer pace of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

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.

"'Maybe my advice is alright for me but it might not work for him". City, I think, after two years of working with Guardiola they have more stability, more security and when you watch City's matches, they are playing with a very, very great confidence in themselves.

"I want the players and supporters to feel that together, and also enjoy each match, each moment in our stadium, and in this way the team transmits to the supporters the passion".

In this first matchday, fans will be treated to the league's first titanic clash of the year as Arsenal hosts Manchester City from the Emirates. Monreal, however, came back from the World Cup with a knock and was unable to take part in any pre-season training or matches since his return. No way. I don't want to forget what we have done last season. We need four on the top level.

'It is not comfortable but if you want to compete in four competitions we cannot compete with just two good central defenders.
