Arsenal head coach Unai Emery said the loss to Manchester City on Sunday made it clear that his team still needs more time to work on his tactics, but he insisted there were some positive signs in the 2-0 defeat.

Granit Xhaka should start and we could see the best of him now that he won't have the defensive duties quite so much following the arrival of Lucas Torreira.

Raheem Sterling delighted in sending a message to his World Cup critics after launching Manchester City's title defence with his 50th Premier League goal.

Key to City's bid for continual improvement is the competition in the squad which requires the players maintain high standards, Guardiola said. There was the odd mistake, most notably from goalkeeper Petr Cech, but Emery's influence is already visible and had they not been playing Guardiola's team, Arsenal would probably have taken something from the game.

None of the newly-promoted teams managed to win but all of last season's top-five began the new campaign with victories.

Manchester City: Ederson 6, Walker 6, Stones 7, Laporte 7, Mendy 6, Silva 8, Fernandinho 7, Gundogan 7, Mahrez 7, Aguero 7, Sterling 8.

"The first half we didn't play like we wanted". "And today is the first step in that".

Maurizio Sarri admits Eden Hazard needs more time to get back to his very best despite an impressive 15-minute cameo as a substitute in Chelsea's 3-0 win at Huddersfield. "I'm a trainer", Guardiola said. I think he played well.

Sterling proved to be City's creative fulcrum, but he was fortunate to escape with a yellow card for a studs-up foul on Arsenal debutant Matteo Guendouzi in the early stages.

Experienced defender Per Mertesacker served as the Gunners' club captain before his retirement at the end of last season and now fellow centre-back Koscielny will take on the responsibility.

"The problem is you have to invest well and honestly I think they did very well, because every player they bought are quality players".

Ten minutes into the second half substitute Alexandre Lacazette nearly levelled matters for Arsenal when he broke into the box, but his 16-yard shot struck the side-netting.

Unai Emery praised Danny Welbeck for his versatility and said the forward has been training at left-back as Arsenal deal with an injury crisis.

Emery, meanwhile, will know he has much to do, even before a hard derby with Chelsea next weekend.

"Nacho is starting with the group and maybe he can come in, maybe, for the next match".
