Unai Emery has been speaking ahead of Arsenal's first match of the 2018-19 Premier League season. "We were once rivals in our days in France, but we're now friends and I hope we can play well together and score lots of goals".

"My main thing is to start the Premier League, the cup, the Europa League and then my objective is to improve each player with their qualities and our work with them". Man United play Leicester tomorrow in the Premier League 2018/19, can Mourinho prove his critics wrong, or will Leicester surprise Man United.

"City, I think, after two years of working with Guardiola they have more stability, more security and when you watch City's matches, they are playing with a very, very great confidence in themselves".

"When we were in Spain each match against Barcelona with Valencia is very exciting and very demanding for me also to prepare for this match".

"The Gunners have not won the league since 2004 and, after finishing fifth and sixth in the last two seasons, Arsene Wenger brought an end to his two-decade spell in charge". We'll be back on Monday morning for all the reaction to City's game.

Welbeck's departure would benefit both him and Arsenal; the England forward would get some much-needed game time, and Unai Emery would have some funds freed up to use before tonight's deadline strikes.

I can play full back and on the wing, but I have very much been at left back over the last five or six years. Opening the scoring within a matter of minutes, Mateusz Klich's early effort was wonderful.

And finally on our young star Phil Foden: "As for the breakthrough player, I see Phil Foden from City bursting onto the scene. My idea is to give us the best performance".

He said: "Raz and Kevin arrived back in good shape and they are available".

"He makes it hard for teams to play against them".

"That's the basic principle".

Arsenal players have admitted that they are doing double training sessions under the new manager than in the past as they have posted pictures of themselves exhausted after tiring sessions and Arsenal's director of high performance says that Unai Emery has made some significant changes to the training methods used at the training grounds. But if we do our job, we will be there. Forget the World Cup and everything else, it's a new challenge. The moment I am not hungry I am leaving, the moment the players are not hungry any more they are going to move on.

"Maybe Tottenham couldn't spend because of the stadium, but Chelsea - imagine Jorginho, [Mateo] Kovacic and [N'Golo] Kante in midfield, and [Eden] Hazard, Willian, Pedro and [Alvaro] Morata in front". Arsenal are other contenders too.
