Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola believes six teams are fighting for title

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola believes six teams are fighting for title

Unai Emery is set for a baptism of fire in his first competitive match in charge of Arsenal against the reigning champions and first ever team to hit 100 points in one season.

Guardiola took time to settle too, but he answered his critics last season and his team's performance in the Community Shield suggested that they are raring to go once more.

Emery already knows what his side must do differently and, having been given a month to work with his players during pre-season, the Spaniard believes that each individual can fit into his desired system.

Emery was hired to replace Wenger following the Frenchman's exit at the end of a dismal campaign which saw Arsenal labour to a sixth-place finish in the Premier League.

Finishing 37 points behind City was a fitting ending for the dispiriting final season of the Wenger era - a torrid campaign played out to a soundtrack of angry protests against the manager from frustrated fans.

Sarri's 'Spanish' Chelsea get off to ideal start
Sarri was quoted by Metro as he spoke about the situation with Courtois and even added that Eden Hazard is happy to stay here. Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has dropped all interest in signing Chelsea ace Eden Hazard .

"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".

"By that thinking, last season we wouldn't have won the Premier League because Chelsea won the year before". After years of Arsenal largely playing the same way regardless of the opposition, Emery's approach at the Emirates will be somewhat more reactive. I have a lot of respect for this career - starting at the bottom and winning titles. I am not a special guy but I am so good at working, working, working a lot and they have to work too.

Manchester City begin the defence of their Premier League title against Arsenal, but it appears as though they will have to do so without star midfielder David Silva. That's the basic principle, ' he urged.

The Croatian World Cup hero would be a welcomed addition to the lacklustre Arsenal backline, a problem which Emery has highlighted as his side's biggest weakness over the summer transfer window. We can not deny the other contenders. Some like Kevin de Bruyne and John Stones had excellent tournaments but others like Gabriel Jesus struggled. 'But football players today forget the good moments and forget the bad moments.

He faces a Guardiola who is now fully into the swing of things at Manchester City and had an unparalleled domestic campaign previous year where City racked up 100 points. "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.
