Emery set for baptism of fire as Arsenal host Man City

Emery set for baptism of fire as Arsenal host Man City

Goalkeeper Ospina is also likely to move on, having dropped down to third choice following the arrival of Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen, and has been linked with Besiktas.

Arsenal fans heading to their clash with Manchester City on Sunday will do so with a sense of excitement and a little trepidation as new manager Unai Emery begins the post-Wenger era with the toughest of all opening matches.

Aaron is an important player for us, and the contract is one thing for the club and the player.

"It remains to be seen how successful that is but that's an area he's focused on. His sessions are very intricate in that regard".

BBC journalist David Ornstein has played down reports suggesting Arsenal have launched a late £89.9m bid to sign Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele.

Rather than building on Arsenal's already implemented attacking approach and star power like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the former Liverpool defender expects Emery to adopt a more rigid approach.




But one of the biggest issues for Arsenal in recent years have been their defence.

"If it's not their goal to win the league, why all the changes in the club?"

"I'm not convinced they have the squad to make a top-four challenge, but they will pick up plenty of points at the Emirates although they must show they have the defensive capabilities to compete with the best on the road".

"Like Arsene [Wenger], he's a workaholic: he's always watching film of training or the opposition". In 2008, Ljungberg was ranked number 11 in a poll of the greatest Arsenal players in history.

Ramsey is a key figure in the club's midfield but they could lose him for nothing next summer if they don't get him tied down long-term.
