Guardiola keen to keep Sterling after he helps City outclass Arsenal

Guardiola keen to keep Sterling after he helps City outclass Arsenal

Guardiola's side might become more technical at the back this season, with Aymeric Laporte and John Stones seemingly his first-choice combination, with the more rugged Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi back-ups.

They embarrassed us badly a few times last season and they themselves will be feeling very confident as they begin the defence of their title. "We want to give him confidence", stated Emery during his pre-match press conference.

With the way that City attacked last season, this could turn into a disaster for Unai Emery, who is taking charge of his first competitive game since taking over from legendary Arsenal gaffer, Arsene Wenger.

Raheem Sterling opened the scoring with a cool finish early in the first half before Bernardo Silva lashed in City's second after the interval, leaving Guardiola to sing the champions' praises. "I thought we did it pretty well". City's left-back missed nearly the entirety of last season through injury, and his overlapping will bring an extra dimension to City's attacking play.

FW Mesut Ozil, 6 - After the fallout from the World Cup, Ozil would have had every motivation to make a positive impact upon this game.

City's second-string side still too good for off-the-pace Arsenal: Vincent Kompany, Kevin De Bruyne, Leroy Sane and Nicolas Otamendi all started on the bench but yet City were still far superior than their hosts. I repeat: "organised, then play". Arsenal improved after the break, but not enough to stop Bernardo Silva putting the seal on the victory.

When asked the question of do you think Aubameyang will a serious contender for the league's top goalscorer award, he simply replied with a one-worded answer "yes". "Working to help when we need quick pressing against the opposition".

Things got worse for Emery when Ainsley Maitland-Niles - only starting at left-back due to injuries to Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac - limped off to be replaced by another newcomer in Stephan Lichtsteiner.

"He has this experience for defending our goal".

Sergio Aguero passed up a hugely presentable chance just before Silva put the result beyond any doubt with 64 minutes gone with a thunderous strike from a Benjamin Mendy cutback, as the Unai Emery era at Arsenal ended in disappointing fashion.
