Unai Emery confirms new Arsenal captain

Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes playing Man City on the opening day of the season is a great time to face them.

City have now lost only one away game in the league - at Liverpool - of their last 21.

If Manchester City are to become the first team since 2009 to defend the Premier League title, matching last season's brilliance will be essential. The Arsenal vs Manchester City will be telecast on Star Sports Select 1 and Star Sports Select 1 HD.

The head coach, who has replaced Arsène Wenger after 22 years at the helm, has said that Laurent Koscielny is club captain but with the France defender recovering from a long-term achilles injury, four others have been named as part of his leadership group. John Stones and Kyle Walker lines-up in defence along with Benjamin Mendy.

Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva scored the goals as City beat a new-look Arsenal side 2-0, producing a hugely impressive performance containing both style and substance.

Emery has clearly placed a big emphasis upon playing out from defence, but goalkeeper Petr Cech - slightly surprisingly preferred over newcomer Bernd Leno - looked consistently nervous at goal kicks, at one point hopelessly scuffing a simple pass backwards, nearly into his own net.

Former Southampton midfielder Jack Cork went closest to breaking the deadlock, slotting home early on only to be judged offside in a contentious call. But Guardiola always attempts to evolve his tactics from season to season, and this felt like a slightly different City. We were the best last season, definitely, there is no doubt about it. The basis of attacks as either Sterling or Mahrez's attacking qualities are superior to Arsenal's makeshift left-back Ashley Maitland-Niles defensive skills. Nearly a goal on his debut for Mahrez!

This is a "new era" for the Gunners fans who will expecting a fresh start and new look side at the Emirates this season. The title is City's to lose, but they'll be hoping for more than just back-to-back championships in England.

"But winning helps to win more".

For Emery, the message to Arsenal supporters is that they must not be fretful.

But it was City who seemed fitter and better prepared to take on the new season.
