Arsenal 0-2 Manchester City | Tactical Snippets

Arsenal FC head coach Unai Emery during the Pre-season friendly between Arsenal and SS Lazio at Friends Arena

To continue working I want one thing because it's very important for the players to take confidence in our work, in ourselves.

Laurent Koscielny has been named as Arsenal captain for the 2018-19 season.

"The same when we are thinking defensively, I want our strikers to be thinking: "We need to protect the goalkeepers".

Sterling has two years left to run on the five-year deal signed when he moved to City from Liverpool in July 2015.

It's unclear if the Welshman will return in time to start on Sunday afternoon but it will be fascinating to see Emery's midfield.

Emery analysed his side's 2-0 loss to Pep Guardiola's City on Sunday by admitting the Premier League champions were worthy winners.

Root, who will be batting in the pivotal number three position, added: "I know that might be seen as quite a big jump". Brought in to replace Ben Stokes, who is facing trial in Bristol, all-rounder Chris Woakes has big shoes to fill.

Cech was at fault for the opener after remaining rooted to the spot as Sterling's curling shot flew into the net. "But I think this process today is normal, especially against a team like Manchester City".

Arsenal have been crying out for a top-class goalkeeper for a number of seasons, despite landing Petr Cech from Chelsea in 2015, and the Gunners have turned towards Bernd Leno to become the new first-choice stopper at the Emirates Stadium.

Cech made several saves to keep Arsenal in the game but also seemed to struggle a bit when playing with his feet, almost scoring an own goal in the first half when he mishit a back pass from Guendouzi.

The goal also marked a personal milestone for the 23-year-old star, who played a key role in City's Premier League triumph in 2017-18. "Also, Leno is starting with us".

Another worry for Arsenal is that their left-back situation worsened when Ainsley Maitland-Niles hobbled off in the first half with a leg injury.

"Nacho started working with the group yesterday, and maybe he can arrive for the next match", Emery said.
