"The captain of this group is Laurent Koscielny, who is injured at the moment", Emery told his club's official website.

Aaron Ramsey is an injury doubt but could start, and against such a creative opposition Emery may push Granit Xhaka into a slightly more advanced role to the left of a 4-3-3. "In my career, I want leaders in the team".

Former Arsenal defender, Mathew Upson, has predicted that the Gunners will finish in the Premier League's top four this season. Together I think we can improve, to win in our way.

"Now, when I say something to them, they know exactly what we have to do", Guardiola's words were refreshing, the Spaniard once again demonstrating why his unique outlook towards the game plays such a prominent role in him being a serial victor.

"The past is very important in this club, with the people that were working here".

'People say we have to forget what we did last season. He will play alongside Shkodran Mustafi and fans will want better performances than witnessed in pre-season. I repeat: "organised, then play".
