Arsenal Vs Manchester City- Pundit reaction

Arsenal vs Manchester City: 3 key battles in Emery’s league debut Arsenal vs. Manchester City: Both teams go into opening fixture with injury worries
Charles Bowen | 13 August, 2018, 02:16

"Manchester City have given me a fantastic squad".

On Sterling's quick return to the City line-up following his post-World Cup holiday, Guardiola said: "His mum and dad gave him a special body shape".

He rewarded Pep Guardiola's faith with a lively showing and a clinically dispatched 14th-minute opener.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are in a new era following the appointment of Unai Emery as well as several new signings this summer.

But the veteran goalkeeper was grasping at fresh air when Sterling sashayed inside to lash home a shot from the edge of the box.

The biggest concern for the Arsenal boss was Aaron Ramsey's involvement in the game, owing to the Welshman's recent absence due to a calf injury. But. He did well to prevent a Riyad Mahrez free-kick and then reacted well to stop the follow-up from Aymeric Laporte.

Bernardo Silva killed off Arsenal in the second half with this lovely, powerful finish. Also missed a golden opportunity in the second half where he should have squared the ball off to Kevin de Bruyne instead of shooting.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had a late goal ruled out for offside that summed up the Gabonese striker's afternoon. During the season we will have really bad moments - it is impossible to have the ideal season all the time - but when you win one title you can win another one.

"Emery has had longer with his team than anyone else - they've largely all been together for the whole of pre-season - and they could potentially cause an upset against City on day one".

That would make Sterling one of the highest paid players in the Premier League, but Guardiola insists his player is highly valued at City regardless of the contract impasse. But his passing was increasingly wayward and the air-kick that let Aguero through spoke of mental and physical fatigue. For Granit Xhaka, this wasn't the case.

Purring from the early periods, City picked up from last season's success by disposing of a top six rival on the opening weekend.

- Unai Emery is the first of Arsenal's last six managers (including caretakers) to lose his first league game in charge of the club, since Steve Burtenshaw lost 0-1 against Tottenham in March 1986. I wanted to play and it's great that we got three points.

But City manager Pep Guardiola admits that even now the transfer window has closed in the Premier League, the Etihad hierarchy may still find Sterling as hard to tie down as the Arsenal defence did at the Emirates.

Petr Cech started in goal for Arsenal's defeat to Manchester City.
