Pep praises Sterling's stellar efforts but can't guarantee a deal

Arsenal news Pierre Emerick Aubameyang

The Catalan did not expect that from Arsenal on Sunday and indeed he did not get it, but he came up with a new shape to combat Unai Emery's new-look team, and provided a glimpse of things to come this season.

The Swiss made his Premier League debut in the loss and conceded there's "a lot of work to do".

"We played a high level considering the lack of physical condition for numerous players who arrived back late after the World Cup", he said.

England forward Raheem Sterling only came back on Monday but opened the scoring with a 14th-minute goal at the Emirates Stadium before Bernardo Silva wrapped up a 2-0 win with a second-half strike.

"I can not ask them if they are still hungry because they will say "yes boss I am hungry", he said.

Whereas last season Guardiola used advanced wingers stretching the play and going in behind, often with more conservative full-backs, here his approach was different.

"We want the competition between the goalkeepers and also every player in the squad", Emery said in a post-match news conference.

The striker scored ten goals in thirteen appearances after he joined Arsenal on the last day of the January transfer window and Unai Emery has tipped the 29-year-old to be a contender for the Premier League Golden Boot this year.

Bayern: Robben underlines Boateng's importance to club
But according to the Guardian , Boateng wants to win the Champions League again and doesn't think United are capable. Here's where United stand on their various defensive candidates with less than 24 hours to the deadline.

"Mendy is Mendy. Sometime you want to kill him and sometimes you say "wow what a player we have", he said. "The team ran, they tried, they pushed".

"Or Manchester United. People don't know how good they will be this season, but I know the manager a little bit and I know in that situation how good they will handle it".

"(We will be) helping with his quality and also getting better with his quality and his data in this year.

"When you play against a team of City's quality and confidence it is always going to be hard".

"We feel that we could have got something from the game", Cech told BBC Sport.

Guardiola maintains he has been an advocate of Sterling's importance to City since his own arrival at the Etihad off the back of England's disappointing Euro 201 exit.

"He has this experience for defending our goal". "Also, Leno is starting with us".

Man City's domestic success has been well documented over the last few years, while Arsenal have failed to finish in the top four of the EPL in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 1996. Today we watched and saw we have to continue working.
