Emery wants Arsenal to be on the front foot against Manchester City

Ahead of their crucial, much-anticipated game against Manchester City, the coach was asked if he would again captain Mesut Ozil.

Suarez is in line to make his debut against his former club Manchester City on Sunday, after completing his loan move from Barcelona earlier this week.

"I used to watch Bergkamp and Henry - they're both legends of the club and hopefully we can follow in their footsteps".

"Maybe Manchester City is a different example, because they bought a very important lot, with paying a lot and maybe we can't do that now like that".

"He played with us at Sevilla as a left winger, at Villarreal as more of a right winger and at Barcelona, he plays inside and outside". He is every year improving with great players and also paying a lot for some players.

Pep Guardiola wants Manchester City to send a warning to title rivals Liverpool by beating Arsenal in style. And we are doing that.

"Because that's what we need".

And there is no man who is more demanding than Guardiola, 48, whom he has never beaten.

Opinions & Transfer NewsEverton interested in Chelsea flop Michy Batshuayi
After a poor half season on loan at Valencia , Batshuayi will want to prove himself again in the Premier League. The report claims that Batshuayi is seen as a decent addition to the Toffees but they can not sign him on loan.


In midfield, Guardiola is now able to call upon Kevin De Bruyne after his return to fitness, and the defeat to Newcastle was the first time this season he's been able to field his first-choice trio of De Bruyne, David Silva and Fernandinho - not that it helped. And I saw a lot of players who speak a lot in the locker room and afterwards they go on the pitch and are under pressure, "I don't want the ball and I don't want to defend".

Ozil, meanwhile, has struggled to win over his new manager and made his first Premier League start since Boxing Day, in the 2-0 win over Cardiff in midweek.

Liverpool are away to West Ham on Monday (20:00) and play Bournemouth at Anfield on Saturday (15:00).

City's accuracy has dipped this term.

He added: "If we can get a point at City, I think that will be brilliant". Their shooting accuracy has also diminished, with 38 per cent of their shots hitting the target rather than 40 per cent. I'll be backing City to get off to a flyer and to see the job through, backing Man City/Man City in the Half Time / Full Time market at anything over [1.95].

"It's an important week but after this week if we are still there then the next games will be important too".

"I am thinking of all the players, and I will make my decision tomorrow, but if he starts I have confidence in him".

"But this detail is a big detail!"
