Unai Emery explains Arsenal’s "aggressive" plan to become Premier League champions again

Unai Emery explains Arsenal’s

It was a memorable campaign but City boss Guardiola is well aware that rival teams and managers will be determined to improve and cut them down. Emery has commented recently that he wants his team to play like City, and he will demand intensity and pressing that was often lacking from his predecessor's teams. We can do our job but the others can do their job too.

However, there is a way for EPL fans to watch the featured clash of the league's opening weekend of the 2018-2019 EPL season stream live for free without a cable subscription. We can not deny the other contenders. It will be interesting to see if he can replicate last season's form.

City look as hungry as ever despite their record-breaking success last season, when they won the title with a record 100 points and also lifted the League Cup.

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

Guardiola said: "People say we now have to forget what we did last season".

"I am looking every day and the players are smiling in training with a big collective spirit".

"When we are thinking in an attacking moment, I want the goalkeeper thinking for that, he is the first". The principles are there.


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. Against Chelsea, we will analyse the opposition and we will assess how to win this game. Nobody can assure me of that. Maybe that was apprehension at the beginning of the new season, maybe we were erring on the side of safety.

After Liverpool's impressive close-season in the transfer market and emphatic 4-0 win over West Ham it was time for the champions to restate their own credentials. "It helps for the future to know that".

The German should be flanked by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on the left and Henrikh Mkhitaryan on the right.

Emery replaced the long-serving Arsene Wenger at the Emirates Stadium over the summer and has immediately put his mark on the squad by overseeing five signings.

The Spaniard will need time to reshape the team and, given the warm applause from numerous home fans still in Emirates Stadium by the final whistle, the majority of supporters are encouraged enough to afford it.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles came on for Kolasinac after he was hurt in Arsenal's 1-1 draw with Chelsea on August 1 and Emery said following the match he would not rule out using the 20-year-old against City.

"He is so intelligent".
