He will play alongside Shkodran Mustafi and fans will want better performances than witnessed in pre-season.

The England forward was outstanding despite having been back in training for less than a week after his exertions in Russian Federation and scored the opening goal as Arsenal, under new management, were swept aside at the Emirates.

"I think every player and every coach and every supporter also is excited to start Sunday and to watch the match".

"The team, for 90 minutes, they ran, they tried, they pushed, but we need to improve all collective and individual aspects".

Laurent Koscielny has been named as Arsenal captain for the 2018-19 season. "But I think here we are going to feel very well". Yes, it's only one game and it was against as formidable an opponent as possible, but there is a ton of room for improvement if Petr Cech and company are to rise above last year's sixth place finish.

Koscielny, now out with an ankle injury, captained the side in place of Per Mertesacker last season.

However, The Telegraph claim that Emery has opted to pick Cech as his main man for the foreseeable future - starting against Manchester City - due to the experience and leadership qualities he possesses.

Emery was unable to shed any light on an injury to Ainsley Maitland-Niles - who was replaced in the first half - and hopes Nacho Monreal can return to training to give him an option at left-back.

Asked to explain his decision, Emery told the London Evening Standard: "In my career I want leaders in the team - there is the representation for every player and in every time in the season the capacity to do that".

It was a game that showed Arsenal are very much a work in progress under Emery, who took over from Arsene Wenger this summer, but Emery was confident they are heading in the right direction. Not only the players in the captain's group.
