Pep Guardiola - Manchester City desire vs. Arsenal 'same as last season'

Pep Guardiola - Manchester City desire vs. Arsenal 'same as last season'

New Arsenal manager Unai Emery has been reminded of the size of the task on his hands as he saw the his side blown away by Manchester City 2-0.

"Or Manchester United. People don't know how good they will be this season, but I know the manager a little bit and I know in that situation how good they will handle it".

It remained 1-0 for the rest of the first half, before the visitors killed off the match just after the hour mark.

"I can not ask them if they are still hungry because they will say "yes boss I am hungry", he said.

Taliban fighters clash with security forces in key city
Police special forces have also been deployed to help block the Taliban advance, an Afghan security official said. He was anxious more wounded could be out there as the city was shut down and ambulances were not being sent out.

Ian Wright has identified two positives from Arsenal's humbling defeat to Manchester City.

Lucky observers may see the occasional meteor sailing across the sky for several seconds, leaving behind a trail of glowing smoke. And experts have advised the best place to watch the stunning show will be at open areas, away from street lights.

City's centre-back combination was also something of a step forward: Only once, on the final day of last season, did Stones and Laporte start together.

The Gunners are hoping for a much-improved campaign to begin the post-Arsene Wenger era, and they are going to be challenged right off the bat against England's top team.

And that, Cech believes, should give Arsenal confidence as they prepare to travel to Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

If a new head coach and handful of signings were meant to shore up Arsenal's wobbly rearguard, this match offered scant evidence. There was no David Silva, and Kevin De Bruyne only appeared as a second-half substitute, yet the likes of Ilkay Gundogan and Silva are better than Arsenal's first-choice options. But we were improving [across] the 90 minutes.

Turkish lira slumps to new record low as Donald Trump doubles tariffs
Deteriorating ties between the USA and Turkey - both North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members - have also alarmed investors. Following the tweet, Turkey responded by imposing duties on $1.8 billion in USA goods including coal and paper.

At the same time, I think many of us are wary of the time it may take for our players to gel and for Pellegrini's style of play to be instilled into our side.
