Premier League 2018-19: Arsenal vs Manchester City Preview

Arsenal transfer news Unai Emery has had a busy window

Arsenal transfer news Unai Emery has had a busy window

The 68-year-old parted ways with Arsenal at the end of last season, replaced by Spaniard Unai Emery, but has made no secret of his desire to continue coaching.

Pep Guardiola will kick off his campaign looking to become the first manager to win back to back Premier League titles since Sir Alex Ferguson did in 2008 and 2009.

Arsenal finished sixth in the Premier League last season and two-time Premier League champions Nwankwo Kanu recently declared that it would take a "miracle" for the Gunners to immediately challenge for the tile this season.

No one needs to be reminded of how Guardiola's team blew everyone out of the title race past year, and they are huge favorites going into this match.

"If it's not their goal to win the league, why all the changes in the club?"

If passed, the legation would make New York City the first major American city to set a limit on ride-hailing vehicles. Al Sharpton, who have long criticized the yellow cab industry for discrimination and profiling of minorities.

Arsenal have reportedly told Danny Welbeck that he would be surplus to requirements this season under Unai Emery and have instructed his agent to find a new club for the forward. It will likely take a heroic goalkeeping performance, some bad finishing from City, or some fantastic finishing from Arsenal if they are to have a shot in this match. "Having played for Arsenal, you don't really like the local rival Tottenham that much", Lehmann said.

In recent seasons, Arsenal have not won the opening game of the season, with the exception of last season where they had to come from behind twice to defeat Leicester City 4-3 at the Emirates. But Spurs and [Harry] Kane must make use of the current momentum they have before it collapses one day.

After a positive transfer window and impressive pre-season results, even the most pro-Wenger fans would find it hard not to be excited about a fresh start under Emery. It appears they right now don't know how to win trophies. "But it's must if you want to be a big side".

While optimism is growing at Anfield, the same can not be said at last season's runners-up Manchester United who kick off the new season on Friday at home to Leicester City with a squad that is under-cooked, according to manager José Mourinho.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Arsenal could line up in 2018-19.
