De Bruyne, Sterling available for Man City's trip to Arsenal
It's an incredibly hard start for Unai Emery as the Gunners new chapter starts against a team tipped for more superiority after their exploits last season.
ESPN state that Arsenal will listen to offers for Welbeck; considering the striker only has one year left on his contract at the Emirates Stadium it would be a very wise decision to get him out today, rather than losing him on a free next summer.
City made just one signing over the summer as Riyad Mahrez arrived from Leicester, but despite their lack of acquisitions, it would be hard to bet against City being even better in 2018/19. "Now, when I say something to them, they know exactly what we have to do".
Arsenal have plenty of options in attack, and Emery, to bring the best out of Mesut Ozil, will likely place him in his preferred No. 10 position.
He said this was possible after the pair returned in flawless condition from the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.
"City, I think, after two years of working with Guardiola they have more stability, more security and when you watch City's matches, they are playing with a very, very great confidence in themselves".
Midfielders Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling are back in contention for Manchester City's Premier League opener at Arsenal.
Arsenal's pursuit of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang took up most of the January transfer window, with head of recruitment Sven Mislintat taking the Gunners' delegation to Dortmund, where he led negotiations with the club he had departed only two months previously.
Arsenal finished sixth last season as they completed their campaign in dismal fashion.
"Because of what we did last season now we are going to win?" The full-back suffered an injury in the team's preseason match against Chelsea.
He has returned to training this week but it's unclear as to whether he'll start the match or be among the substitutes.
Maitland-Niles isn't a natural left-back, although was deployed there on various occasions last season, and his right-footedness might help if Guardiola deploys Riyad Mahrez on the right flank, as the Algerian is always attempting to drift inside onto his left.
The club's official website has confirmed a couple of long-term injuries with Sead Kolasinac out for 6-8 weeks and Laurent Koscielny due to return at the end of the year.
Considering a 4-2-3-1 formation, Emery is set to go with a central defensive partnership of Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Shkodran Mustafi.
David Silva could be a question mark for Sunday's fixture as well.
Bernardo Silva has earned huge praise from Guardiola in pre-season and is expected to play a key role for City.
Having missed out on the Champions League, Arsenal will play in the Europa league but boy aren't they in safe hands!
