Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leads Arsenal line against Manchester City

Unai Emery spoke exclusively to Sky Sports about his blueprint for Arsenal going forward

Manchester City begin their Premier League title defence this afternoon with a tricky test against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal v City: Team news: Pep Guardiola confirmed Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling are available for selection for Sunday's Premier League opener against Arsenal.

'There is Chelsea with Jorginho, Kovacic and Kante in the middle, and Hazard, Willian, Pedro and Morata up front, so you cannot say they are not contenders.

"He makes it hard for teams to play against them". People say now we have to forget what we did last season.

In the first half of last season, he was superb, a regular for City during our record-breaking run of victories.

I will be using half my stake backing Over 3.5 goals before the game starts at around [2.5] and also placing the other half on Over 2.5 goals with a keep bet should it reach [2.0] in running. "There was a gap last season but this season I don't know". It's about the mix, when you have a defensive or attacking moment, and I want every player to improve in this way.

I know exactly what we did to achieve that and we start from there. That's the basic principle.

'The important thing is to be ourselves.

Initially Kevin de Bruyne and David Silva were the tipped partnership in the centre of midfield, however a prolonged rest for both players means the Portugal global should enter the fray for the Sky Blues' season opener.

"Maybe my advice is alright for me but it might not work for him". The title is City's to lose, but they'll be hoping for more than just back-to-back championships in England. Guardiola insists he is perfectly happy with his group of players.

De Bruyne's fellow Belgium global Vincent Kompany is also on the bench, meaning January arrival Aymeric Laporte starts alongside John Stones at the back. But we're starting a new way, a new process with the same players and the new players, the new coaches. Holidays, start again. Being good in the locker room and our games, and that's all'.

Guardiola took time to settle too, but he answered his critics last season and his team's performance in the Community Shield suggested that they are raring to go once more.
