Arsenal vs Man City: Why David Silva is not playing vs Arsenal

Aaron Ramsey GETTY SELL Some fans want the Welshman out

Arsenal's beginning of a new era after ending their life under Arsene Wenger last season after 22-years, and under the new manager, Unai Emery, they couldn't have envisaged a more challenging start.

The 27-year-old has often been praised for his versatility and it seems Emery is keen to embrace this quality as he prepares for his first competitive game as Gunners boss.

Arsenal will step out under new a manager for the first time since 1996.

Speaking at a news conference ahead of Arsenal clash with Man City this Sunday, Emery was quoted by the Sportreview, saying of the Ramsey situation: "That's not my work".

The Emirates Stadium in London will host the Arsenal vs Manchester City EPL match.

The report also mentions that Arsenal are believed to be discussing a new contract with Ramsey, although this has not been officially confirmed as of yet. After utterly dominating the English top flight last season, Pep Guardiola and company will now try and replicate that while focusing their efforts in Europe as well. It's just about returning to the top four - to qualify for the Champions League - after slumping to sixth in Wenger's final campaign.

Emery has European pedigree in that competition though and that could remain their best chance of getting back into the Champions League.

A strike from World Cup victor N'Golo Kante, Jorginho's penalty on debut and a late goal for Pedro were enough to hand Maurizio Sarri a first win in the Premier League .

The Nigeria global had been linked with a departure from the Emirates Stadium before penning a new long-term contract this month, but even with that, he can still be sold or loaned out to a foreign club before September 1, 2018. Benjamin Mendy is meanwhile fit again and will provide more consistency on the left.

That should cause Man City some problems if they all gel very quickly.

Sergio Aguero is already among the goals whilst Leroy Sane is fresh after surprisingly not being included in Germany's World Cup squad.

Preferred to summer signing Bernd Leno, Cech went some way to making amends for his shaky start to the season by pushing away a low Riyad Mahrez free-kick and then blocking Aymeric Laporte's close-range follow-up.

Mertesacker retired from playing at the end of the campaign, assuming the role of Arsenal's academy manager.

City have great depth, though, and the Gunners could be in for a hard afternoon as they try to welcome their new era in with a win on Sunday.

For Arsenal, their biggest concern will be at left-back with two specialist players in that position out for the fixture.

Manchester police say 10 people hospitalized after shooting
The other nine people are being treated for pellet-type wounds suffered in the shooting, which was reported at about 2:30 a.m. Ten people suffered minor or major injuries in what Manchester police call "a unsafe attack, " Sky News reports.

The Gabon global has been impressive in the pre-season so he will likely start today's match.

A draw for the Gunners would be an optimistic start.

Sead Kolasinac suffered a knee ligament injury against Chelsea in pre-season, while Nacho Monreal only returned to full training this week.

On the appointments, Emery said: "The captain of this group is Laurent Koscielny, who is injured at the moment".

Sokratis makes his debut in defence alongside Shkodran Mustafi while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leads the line up front with Alexandre Lacazette named on the bench.

Midfielders Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling are back in contention for City.

Manchester City played with the same level of control and authority as last season, dominating possession throughout the game, pressing well and involving their forwards regularly.
