New Arsenal Signing Outshines Awful Teammates With Encouraging Debut Against Manchester City

The England worldwide slipped out of favour under Pep Guardiola towards the end of last season, but impressed for his country at World Cup 2018.

Pep Guardiola has backed Unai Emery to make an instant impact at Arsenal and turn the club back into Premier League title contenders.

Mendy's second assist was the classic Mendy assist, the type we witnessed so many times at Monaco - and therefore it was fitting that his former Monaco teammate Silva converted the chance.

It was the first time since 1996 that Arsenal has opened a season without Arsene Wenger in charge, with the "Merci Arsene" banner the only indication of times past at the ground after Wenger resigned at the end of the last season.

Arsenal started well, pressing and harrying City, but Guardiola's men absorbed the early pressure and eased their way to ascendancy.

"I was so angry at the way this club is being run that I just lost it and tried to rip up my season ticket", supporter Alan Wright admitted to FFT.

"The first half we didn't play like we wanted".

"The way we won is so important for us, for our confidence, now we move forward".

Gates repeatedly challenged Downing's characterization of certain events with astonishingly self-incriminating frankness. Under the deal, he admitted to helping Manafort evade taxes, violate USA lobbying laws, and hide foreign bank accounts.

I can say to the players "are you hungry?' and they say 'yes, boss", but I don't know.

But while City made inroads down the right, they scored both their goals from the left, and both were assisted by Mendy - in entirely different ways.

Guardiola insists City would be foolish to think they will ease to the title by such a significant margin once again and believes Arsenal will be part of a strong chasing pack over the course of the season.

"We have a lot of players with a lack of condition but we are more than two seasons together and know what to do".

"We arrived after a hard season and I told him I want to help him and want him to stay". Manchester City are working in their third year with Guardiola and they have built a team with security, good players and a great stability of playing like they want.

"We finished with the spirit I want".

"The result was 2-0 but I think on the pitch over the 90 minutes we were getting better", he said after the game, per the Daily Express. "This process is normal".

"We played really well in the first half but they changed it round at half-time and pushed us in the second half", Hart told the BBC.
