Unai Emery exclusive: My Arsenal blueprint

Unai Emery exclusive: My Arsenal blueprint

The 46-year-old has won three UEFA Europa League titles with Sevilla, a French Ligue 1 trophy and two French League Cups with Paris Saint-Germain, and has been known for his high-pressing, intensive style of play, which Arsenal have been missing during the past few underwhelming seasons.

'Each player has this quality, this characteristic to help the team as a collective.

Neither side have any suspensions. Emery's shaky defence will have to face an incredibly lethal Manchester City attack and that could spell trouble for the new Arsenal manager on his debut.

There were obvious problems with the Arsenal side last season and now, the club's Head of High-Performance Darren Burgess has revealed what Unai Emery most wanted to fix as head coach.

The left back won't be available on Sunday as he is out for 8-10 weeks due to a knee injury which he sustained in the pre-season.

Ospina has been linked with Turkish clubs Beşiktaş and Fenerbahçe after Arsenal completed the signing of Bernd Leno earlier in the summer. The Egyptian signed a new deal with the club in March but the signings of Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi mean he is now surplus to requirements.

Kick-off is 4pm BST (11am ET) on Sunday August 12, and the game will be shown on Sky Sports in the United Kingdom. "That might just be my wishful thinking".

Speaking in an interview with BBC Sport, Wright said: "They start against a City team who know exactly what they are doing, but this might be a good time to play them because some of their players are late back from the World Cup". He's never not analysing, even in the lead up to friendly games.

"Looking around the dressing room and seeing what other players are being paid, in Arsenal's case the ludicrous contract that they awarded to Mesut Ozil in February, Ramsey might not think he's going to get that level of contract, sees himself as all footballers do when they get the age of 28, think this could be my last major contract".

Meanwhile, City won the title with a record Premier League points haul of 100.

Arsenal are beginning a league season against the reigning top-flight champions for the first time since the 1970-71 campaign, when they drew 2-2 at Everton on the opening day.
