The gunners signed a new goalkeeper this summer but the manager has hint at making Petr Cech his first choice goalkeeper this season and so we expect Unai Emery to begin the Czech Republican worldwide in-goal against Manchester City.
Cech made up for his mistake by making a number of smart saves to deny City, which saw Arsenal fans divert their frustration onto another player: Granit Xhaka.
Raheem Sterling gave the visitors the lead inside 15 minutes when he cut inside Hector Bellerin before firing the ball past a near-motionless Petr Cech in the Arsenalgoal. "We have not had a lot of training sessions and 90 percent of the Arsenal players were together for the last month-and-a-half, two months". Alexandre Lacazette will start for Arsenal as their central striker.
Seconds later, City had scored again, Bernardo producing a spectacular first-time left-footed finish that flew into the top corner in emphatic fashion.
Perhaps the other big positive is that there were clear signs of a plan behind Arsenal's play.
"I think especially to start the Premier League against such a strong team here at Emirates Stadium and start well is important", Silva said.
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. But it's just one game [in the Premier League]. He was a bit steadier against City, and one of the few members of the defence who looked comfortable with the short-passing approach. The title is City's to lose, but they'll be hoping for more than just back-to-back championships in England.
The gulf between City and Arsenal was plain to see. City's left-back missed nearly the entirety of last season through injury, and his overlapping will bring an extra dimension to City's attacking play.
Unai Emery is clearly not afraid to experiment. But in these two moments in the match, we need to work.
'We can do our job, yes, but maybe Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea can do their job better and win, reflects Guardiola.

Manchester City too strong for Arsenal and Unai Emery
We were the best last season, definitely, there is no doubt about it. "I'm not rigid to stick to one formation or way of playing". Emery now has a clear sense of the task he faces, throwing his arms in the air in frustration as the goals were conceded.
