City rarely looked troubled by Arsenal as the champions opened their Premier League title defense with a 2-0 victory on Sunday.

The Gunners were far too structured and predictable, nearly robotic as they consistently played short passes out from the back at every opportunity.

Pep Guardiola wants Raheem Sterling to stay at Manchester City. He didn't play in Manchester City's win over Chelsea in the Community Shield.

The Gunners signed five players in the summer transfer window to bolster Emery's squad ahead of the new Premier League campaign.

"We played a high level considering the lack of physical condition for numerous players who arrived back late after the World Cup", he said.

The Frenchman was involved in one of his side's more awkward moments midway through the first half, though. The only disappointing aspect of City's performance was that they lacked the clinical edge that saw them waltz past teams last season.

With the way that City attacked last season, this could turn into a disaster for Unai Emery, who is taking charge of his first competitive game since taking over from legendary Arsenal gaffer, Arsene Wenger. "No-one can deny it is complicated, so to win the way we won is more than pleasing". Manchester City were sensational as they cruised to the title last season, amassing 100 points and smashing seemingly every possible record.

Far from showing the kind of complacency that has affected recent title defences, City look more focused and sharper than before. Going forward, things were made particularly hard for him by the absence of a natural left-back to lend him support.

What is now left to be seen is that whether Marcelo will be playing in front of Thibaut Courtois for the upcoming season or not. I've played with Neymar, so it's not totally new for me to play with someone at [Ronaldo's] level.

Guardiola insists his players are still "starving" for success and there is little doubt City's hunger for silverware remains strong.

However, Emery said his players grew into the game and had chances after the break to equalise. They show me on the green stuff (the pitch). "And then, when we have the space, to be aggressive going forward. He likes to score goals and he tried, but I'm sure in the European qualifiers he will score goals for his country, England". Who knows, they could be City's greatest challenge if they come through the first two fixtures unscathed. "We are a strong team, after that we will see". Danilo is expected to miss the opening games of the season with an ankle injury.

"I said to him when he arrived with us after the holidays, I want the best performance in his career from this player - and to work for that", Emery said of the former Manchester United man.

"He has a lot of things to improve".

"It was a shame we couldn't finish off our counter attacks and overall we're disappointed with the defeat".

It's this weekend's biggest game - Unai Emery makes his League debut on the Arsenal bench. The shadow cast over Arsenal's new manager is not a 22-year reign so much as a decade of poor recruitment that could take many seasons to correct. "And today is the first step in that". "We wanted to be professional and we did it". I can't back City at odds-on, so I'll go for Draw / Man City in the Half Time / Full Time market at [5.8]. This process is normal.
