Pep Guardiola: I want to kill Benjamin Mendy at times

Arsenal team news Arsenal team news Lucas Torreira will make his debut

'We wanted to build with the ball and break their lines.

I don't think this game will be a tale of Arsenal's season, and I wouldn't write off their chances against Chelsea either.

Unai Emery has declared his desire to keep Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey at Arsenal, but insists he will not be the one to handle the contract negotiations. "We are satisfied for many, many reasons", Guardiola told Sky Sports.

Raheem Sterling delighted in sending a message to his World Cup critics after launching Manchester City's title defence with his 50th Premier League goal.

Several, including England stars Raheem Sterling, Kyle Walker and John Stones, cut short their holidays to get back into training with City.

Emery ended by confirming that he will make a late decision on Sunday on who he might start.

Cech came to the home side's rescue on 63 minutes when it looked for all the world that Sergio Aguero would double City's lead at the Emirates Stadium.

After 14 minutes City showed they will likely be the team to beat this campaign too. Guardiola's side looked unstoppable for the first half an hour but then took their foot off the gas and allowed Arsenal back into it, although they won at a canter.

The only disappointing aspect of City's performance was that they lacked the clinical edge that saw them waltz past teams last season. "Hopefully we can convince him to be calm and forget the social media!"

Unai Emery has revealed he urged his Arsenal players to "take more responsibility" during their defeat to Manchester City on Sunday. Leno is starting with us, he's working very well and played well in pre-season but he can wait for his moment.

"We want competence with the goalkeepers and all the players in the squad", he said. Of course our average level is high, but I have a feeling still we can improve. Not every game will be against a team as good, as well coached, as cold-blooded as Man City.

Alexandre Lacazette also starts from the bench, with Mesut Özil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan supporting Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in a front three. "I didn't intentionally go in to make a bad challenge", he added.

The Spaniard will need time to reshape the team and, given the warm applause from numerous home fans still in Emirates Stadium by the final whistle, the majority of supporters are encouraged enough to afford it.
