Arsenal's uncomfortable Petr Cech earns 5/10 as Gunners struggle vs

Jurgen Klopp

Welbeck, 27, has traditionally played in more advanced positions during his career, but with Sead Kolasinac out for two months with a knee injury and Nacho Monreal also unavailable for their Premier League opener against Manchester City on Sunday, Emery has been toying with using the England worldwide as a left-back.

The biggest concern for the Arsenal boss was Aaron Ramsey's involvement in the game, owing to the Welshman's recent absence due to a calf injury. But. The Welshman just returned to training at the end of the week. Going forward, things were made particularly hard for him by the absence of a natural left-back to lend him support.

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

Here's how to watch Manchester City vs. Arsenal online.

The Spaniard did return to full training a few days ago, but could be shot of fitness for the City game. He was in France, he was with many teams in Spain, so he has a lot of experience. As well, Danny Welbeck has come in this week, but on Sunday it will be too early to start playing him.

'Leno is starting with us, he's working very well, he played well in pre-season.

The Gunners signed five players in the summer transfer window to bolster Emery's squad ahead of the new Premier League campaign. But, owing to match fitness and sharpness, Maitland-Niles could well start.

Wall Street flat as trade tensions mute earnings optimism
The S&P index recorded 25 new 52-week highs and TWO new lows, while the Nasdaq recorded 85 new highs and 51 new lows. That compares with the 6.3 billion daily average for the past 20 trading days, according to Thomson Reuters data.

Succeeding a man whose 22-year reign moulded the modern Arsenal was never going to be a cakewalk, but Unai Emery can be under no illusion as to how far off the pace his new club have fallen after this 2-0 defeat to a Manchester City side who barely got out of second gear.

"First game of the season, away at Arsenal with a new manager after 20 years?" Hector Bellerin should complete the backline, with Stephan Lichtsteiner likely to be his backup this season.

MF Granit Xhaka, 5 - Guendouzi might well have expected considerable support from the more experienced Xhaka, but the Swiss was no more effective in the midfield battle.

The urgency for Manchester City to bring a positive conclusion to the contract saga was underlined as Sterling produced a match-winning performance.

Those players will join an Arsenal dressing room that is already stacked with top-class talent, with the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Mesut Ozil making up the Gunners' ranks.

The France striker injected more urgency into Arsenal's attacks and sent an effort just wide only moments after coming on.
