Arsenal’s likely XI v Manchester City: Sokratis, Leno & Torreira start

Unai Emery Rafael Benitez

The precision and detail behind Emery's match preparation will be seen as a breath of fresh air by many at the club, but it remains to be seen whether Arsenal have a squad with enough depth to challenge the likes of Manchester City at the top.

Kroenke's £550m offer to buy Alisher Usmanov's 30% stake has been accepted, meaning Kroenke will be able to make a compulsory purchase of the remaining shares.

"My first message is clear: think about each match".

Speaking to Wolves TV, Dendoncker said of his new employers: "I followed them a little bit a year ago and I saw they did really good".

Paul Pogba furious with Jose Mourinho amid Barcelona and Juventus interest
His agent, Mino Raiola, is expected in Manchester this week to negotiate the transfer of Pogba out of Old Trafford. But it appears United have turned down what seems like a low bid and you can't really blame them.

City showed against Chelsea that they are going to continue from where they left off last season.

"For me, it's positive and his commitment is for me, to Arsenal, the most important". "I am looking every day and the players are smiling in training with a big collective spirit". It's for that, my message for Sunday and for the season is optimism. Then we need to build and create by the way. "I want to be together with the supporters to start a new way with the same players, also some new players, and with a new coach and new staff". Nacho Monreal began to train with the team [on Friday]. "But we are starting a new way, and a new process", he said.

Emery also dodged a question about whether Wenger has sent him any messages at all going into the season, saying only that he wants to build on the Frenchman's legacy.

Danny Welbeck has been linked with a move to Valencia by the British media, with major European leagues able to recruit players until 31 August. Not only the players in the captain's group. The Spaniard said that three Arsenal players may depart during that period: Carl Jenkinson, Joel Campbell and David Ospina. For a good part, Welbeck has played on either side of attack but through the middle, Emery now prefers other players there. Lucas Torreira may be given his Arsenal debut in the Premier League, with Granit Xhaka also helping to provide a defensive shield against a City side capable of running riot.
