Arsenal's Danny Welbeck training at left-back amid injury crisis

Neil Humphreys Pep sets the standards

Joining Arsenal in 2014 from Premier League rivals Manchester United, Danny Welbeck has so far made 112 appearances for the Gunners across all competitions.

And at half-time, Neville then claimed Emery shouldn't be too upset with the first half despite Arsenal being outplayed.

After all the pre-match hype, Danny Welbeck is not even in the Arsenal squad, let alone at left-back.

Arsenal finished sixth last season as they completed their campaign in dismal fashion.

Considering a 4-2-3-1 formation, Emery is set to go with a central defensive partnership of Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Shkodran Mustafi. Hector Bellerin, meanwhile, will need all his speed against Leroy Sane.

He adds: "I see Kevin de Bruyne smashing it in terms of the PFA player of the year".

The new manager, the Telegraph said, confirmed that Laurent Koscielny, now out injured, would be his main captain, but that he would be backed up by Petr Cech, Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Granit Xhaka.

The 27-year-old has struggled for regular football in recent times, either because of injury or the form of other players - with the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Henrikh Mkhitaryan passing him in the pecking order.

Koscielny, now out with an ankle injury, captained the side in place of Per Mertesacker last season.

The Argentine came up against the Gunners on three occasions last season and directly contributed to a goal in each of those, registering one assist and scoring twice himself - including once in the EFL Cup final. The title is City's to lose, but they'll be hoping for more than just back-to-back championships in England. Emery's obsession with tactical systems bodes well for the Gunners who have always seemed lost at the first hint of resistance on pitch.

Tactically, it would be more of the same for Manchester City - their fluid transitions and quick executions of intricate passing moves are likely to get more precise. Ederson, meanwhile, has a very long kick he's not afraid to showcase, despite City's focus on possession.
