Laurent Koscielny named Arsenal's main captain by head coach Unai Emery

Laurent Koscielny named Arsenal's main captain by head coach Unai Emery

Unai Emery may aspire, and often succeed, to produce a style of football as aesthetically pleasing as that consistently delivered by Arsène Wenger, but goes about it a very different way. "It helps if we're together, for the players to show their best performance and to transmit with every supporter the quality, the energy and the spirit to go forward against Manchester City".

They did, however, face accusations of being a soft touch towards the end of the French coach's iconic tenure, with a tumble out of the Premier League's top four considered to be the costly result of obvious flaws. Arsenal's decision to cash-in on a player with one year left on his current deal comes as no surprise as Emery looks set to trim his squad even further. But then also we need to build [a mentality] and it isn't a thing you find quickly. He started his career as a bigger player than me.

Aaron Ramsey has won his race to be fit for the match though, with Arsenal looking to improve on their poor record against City last season which saw Pep Guardiola's team beat the Gunners three times - including in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley.

"The match is going to give us the information [of what] is our level", he said.

Last Meetings - Everton Finalising Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes Arrivals
Everton's season-long loan deal for Portugal's Gomes will see them pay 2.25 million euros (RM10.6 million) and the player's wages. Bernard, a 25-year-old capped 14 times by Brazil, was a free agent after his contract with Shakhtar Donetsk expired.

"When we were in Spain each match against Barcelona with Valencia is very exciting and very demanding for me also to prepare for this match".

"The aim for the club is to arrive as champions, play for titles", he added. The same when we are thinking defensively, I want our strikers to be thinking: "We need to protect the goalkeepers". "It's for that on Sunday I want first to be together with our supporters".

And the former Paris Saint-Germain and Sevilla coach has stressed the importance of Arsenal being on the front foot. "But for me, I want to enjoy the way [we do it]".
