Unai Emery revealed that Laurent Koscielny will be Arsenal's permanent captain.

The game against City will be Arsenal's first in the Premier League without Arsene Wenger as manager since September 1996.

Emery opted to start Cech in goal despite bringing in Bernd Leno in the summer and stood by his decision afterward.

"We arrived after a hard season and I told him I want to help him and would like him to be happy".

"This 90 minutes [showed] the spirit I want [but] we need to improve. Yesterday the transfer window closed and our players will stay with us".

Raheem Sterling in the 14′ and Bernardo Silva in the 64′ were the two shooters to get the ball past Cech, who didn't have a very solid showing.

The players will train at the stadium today ahead of tomorrow's opener against Manchester City - a departure from the traditional methods employed by his predecessor.

Like Arsenal , Manchester City have a few injuries at the start of the Premier League season. "That's the basic principle". I've said many time that I'm not a special guy but I am so good at working, working, working, and they have to work too'.

Sterling's representatives had opened talks on a new deal before the World Cup finals this summer, the player having enjoyed an eye-catching season in scoring 18 league goals to help City secure the title, only to postpone those discussions before the tournament.

"I think every player and every coach and every supporter also is excited to start Sunday and to watch the match".

"Maybe there will be more leaders in the team to show this captaincy, not just in the captains" group. "I thought we did it pretty well".

"He has this experience for defending our goal". "Also, Leno is starting with us. He played also good in the preseason, but he can wait for his moment to arrive".

Emery said he did not know the status of Maitland-Niles' injury, but said Monreal could be ready to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge next weekend.

"Danny Welbeck is one of the players who has a multi-position possibility", said Emery.
