Michael Cox looks at the tactics, Alan Thompson provides the betting lowdown.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has shared his ambitious plan to win the Premier League title ahead of welcoming champions Manchester City to the Emirates on Sunday.

'We talked to some of them about how it was, ' revealed Guardiola.

Another bonus for City was the performance of Benjamin Mendy, who made his first Premier League start since September following a cruciate knee ligament injury. A full list of TV coverage from around the world can be found here. Going forward, things were made particularly hard for him by the absence of a natural left-back to lend him support.

Arsenal were given a hiding in this fixture a few months back, losing 3-0 on an absolutely freezing night in front of a paltry crowd that pretty much summed up where they were back then.

The Greek global is excellent in the air but often struggles against speed, so the threat of Sergio Aguero is something of a concern - especially as the Argentine has such a fine record against the Gunners.

Three-time European Tour victor Matt Wallace had a moment to remember when he claimed a hole-in-one at the Par-3 16th. His resulting attempt to punch back out in to play hit another tree and ricocheted out of bounds.

It's likely to be three against three in midfield. Fernandinho, Kevin De Bruyne and a Silva - either David or Bernardo - is a familiar trio for the away side.

And Emery says there is more to come from Guendouzi. Whether it's on the left with Lacazette through the middle, or both players starting alongside each other as central striking options, there can be no doubt that, with the likes of Mesut Ozil, Mkhitaryan, Lacazette and Aubameyang in the team, Arsenal are spoilt for choice in attack.

Aubameyang's 10 goals in 14 games in all competitions, despite only joining in January, should remind everyone that he hasn't even got started yet.

Neither Kolasinac nor Monreal are expected to feature in the Gunners' season opener against defending champions Manchester City on Sunday afternoon. Far from showing the kind of complacency that has affected recent title defences, City look more focused and sharper than before.

Emery added that he wants each of his players, regardless of their positions on the pitch to adopt a holistic approach to the games they play. Ederson, meanwhile, has a very long kick he's not afraid to showcase, despite City's focus on possession. "They will show me if they are hungry here - on the green colour. I didn't intentionally go in to make a bad challenge", he added.
