Arsenal vs Manchester City, Premier League 18-19

The Premier League match of the week is the last one on the slate on Sunday as new-look Arsenal plays its first match league contest without Arsene Wenger when it welcomes Manchester City to the Emirates.

Former Arsenal defender, Mathew Upson, has predicted that the Gunners will finish in the Premier League's top four this season. They embarrassed us badly a few times last season and they themselves will be feeling very confident as they begin the defence of their title.

But then we are going to watch Sunday, how is the response of the team against Manchester City.

That less than prolific strike-rate, however, does not tell the story of a massive improvement in front of goal since Pep Guardiola took over at the Etihad.

Either way, Arsenal vs Man City is set to be an exciting clash on Sunday afternoon and Gooners can't wait to see the start of their new era - as long as it doesn't involve Welbeck at left-back.

Pep Guardiola's team are still the team to beat in the league. "But we are starting a new way, and a new process", he said.

It also tied the 36-hole record for all majors, matching Jordan Spieth at the 2015 Masters, Martin Kaymer at the 2014 U.S. Fox started on the back nine at Bellerive Country Club in Missouri, shooting even par through his first nine holes.

With Laurent Koscielny out for the foreseeable future, Sokratis Papastathopoulos is likely to make his Arsenal debut alongside Shkodran Mustafi at the heart of the defence.

Midfielder Aaron Ramsey is a doubt for the fixture.

Silva also did not feature for Manchester City during their Community Shield victory over Chelsea due to an injury, and it has not been confirmed when Silva is expected to return for Guardiola's side.

Welbeck faces serious competition to get in the side in his usual forward position with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Henrikh Mkhitaryan all first-choice players in attacking positions. If he does start, Manchester City must be licking their lips with Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling both looking to target the stand-in full-back.

Arsenal have named their new captain after Per Mertesacker retired from playing football at the end of last season.
