Is Emery prepared for Pep Guardiola?

Neil Humphreys Pep sets the standards Pep Guardiola's Manchester City are aiming to be the first team to retain the English Premier League in the last decade

Instead, he has told his players to use their form of previous year - in which they also set records for most points, wins and goals in the Premier League era - to launch another championship charge.

'Or Manchester United. People how ask how they will do, but I know a little bit about their manager and how good they will handle that. Ahead of their first showdown on English soil, Emery has welcomed the challenge of getting one over on his compatriot. The other players are OK, and we are working on the possibility to work with Ainsley, who has experience in this [left-back] position. For Emery, an opening game against the Premier League champions is a daunting task. No way. I don't want to forget.

City will make late checks on Aymeric Laporte and Benjamin Mendy after they picked up knocks during the Community Shield win over Chelsea last weekend but both players are expected to be passed fit. We'll be back on Monday morning for all the reaction to City's game. I work a lot and I am good at this.

He said: "Raz and Kevin arrived back in good shape and they are available". That's the basic principle, ' he urged.

Even the most optimistic of Arsenal supporters will not be expecting a surprise victory in their Premier League opener, but Emery, winless in his ten personal battles with Guardiola so far, could very well serve up a dollop of inspiration against the rhapsodical juggernaut that Manchester City promises to be.

He featured prominently for Spain at the World Cup this summer, but failed to exert his influence during the tournament.

'There is Chelsea with Jorginho, Kovacic and Kante in the middle, and Hazard, Willian, Pedro and Morata up front, so you cannot say they are not contenders.

"In the past, Arsenal has won games on great football, individual brilliance and having great attacking players", former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher said.

Manchester City are unbeaten in their last five league encounters with Arsenal who begin a new era under manager Unai Emery following last May's departure of long-serving manager Arsene Wenger.

"Now he is at Arsenal, one of the best teams in England, and of course he is a contender to win titles". "Now, when I say something to them, they know exactly what we have to do", Guardiola's words were refreshing, the Spaniard once again demonstrating why his unique outlook towards the game plays such a prominent role in him being a serial victor.
