Arsenal vs. Manchester City live stream

Only two new signings, Sokratis Papastathopolous and Matteo Guendouzi, started the match for Arsenal with Stephan Lichsteiner and Lucas Torreira appearing from the substitutes bench. This sums up Arsenal's day. Arsenal improved after the break, but not enough to stop Bernardo Silva putting the seal on the victory.

That Arsenal's performance was somewhat disjointed shouldn't detract from City's display. A title challenge is very unlikely, but a top-four place isn't out of the equation.

Petr Cech believes that Arsenal could have taken a point from their Premier League meeting with Manchester City had they been more decisive in the final third. Emery, even if successful in the long-term, will probably take time to assert himself at a club used to only one man for 22 years.

Sergio Aguero passed up a hugely presentable chance just before Silva put the result beyond any doubt with 64 minutes gone with a thunderous strike from a Benjamin Mendy cutback, as the Unai Emery era at Arsenal ended in disappointing fashion.

DF Shkodran Mustafi, 6 - Arsenal have shown considerable faith with the German, retaining him as part of the back four despite a disastrous 2017-18 campaign.

City were playing with the same vibrancy we showed in last weekend's win over Chelsea and were nearly 2-0 up when Aguero brought down just outside box by Sokratis. Unai Emery will be disappointed to start with a defeat, but sometimes the quality of the opposition simply has to be accepted. He was a bit steadier against City, and one of the few members of the defence who looked comfortable with the short-passing approach.

DF Ainsley Maitland-Niles, 6 - With Kolasinac injures and Nacho Monreal not yet ready, the Englishman was called upon to play at full-back.

It is expected that the former Sampdoria midfielder will start alongside Aaron Ramsey at the base of Arsenal's 4-2-3-1 formation.

'Any bad moments in the World Cup, start again. This was where we left off last season: electric going forward, but capable of slowing the game down and dominating the ball when necessary.

Since joining the club earlier this year the striker has scored 10 goals in just 13 league games.

New Arsenal goalkeeper, Bernd Leno could get the nod over Petr Cech for Arsenal's opener against Manchester City.

Arsenal brought on Alexandre Lacazette ten minutes after the interval as they went in search of an equaliser.
