Unai Emery rates Matteo Guendouzi's debut vs Man City


Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola said his players know how to eke out victories even when many are not fully match fit just as they did in getting their title defence off to a winning start with a routine 2-0 victory over Arsenal on Sunday.

The Spaniard is expecting a tough encounter with Chelsea on Saturday but is determined to leave west London with all three points.

Arsenal have displayed an interesting shape off the ball with Ramsey in the centre on top, Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan either side of him in a narrow 4-3-3.

After a hard summer playing for England at the World Cup, during which his lack of success in front of goal resulted in much criticism, Sterling was superb against Arsenal, giving City the lead with an impressive driven finish from the edge of the box.

"We created a lot of chances and out performance was good".

"In the second half, we took more risks with our pressing, took more risks with the ball to break their lines and go forward quickly".

But with his tactic clearly not working, Emery should have tried to switch it up and play a more direct style of football. "Having been on the pitch today, I think that compared to where we were previous year we looked better and had chances in the second half that we didn't score", Bellerin told Arsenal's website.

"In fact, I think I hate him".

"Mendy is Mendy. Sometime you want to kill him and sometimes you say "wow, what a player we have", he said.

Bernd Leno will however have to put up with playing in other competitions like the UEFA Europa League since Unai Emery has chosen Petr Cech as his first choice goalkeeper.

This might be a new Premier League season but it could quite easily follow the very same pattern as the one prior. 19-year-old Metteo Guendouzi was provided his first competitive start following his summer move from Ligue 2 side Lorient and the youngster seemed confident, happy to drop deep and regularly provide a passing option to his defenders.

"We finished with the spirit I want".

Benjamin Mendy provided both assists in Manchester City's Premier League opener vs. Arsenal.

Boos were heard after the second goal, eventually directed towards Emery once fans could work out who he was, and the first "Wenger Out" signs were repurposed as "Emery Out" with only a small amount of in-stand editing needed.
