Jens Lehmann: Arsenal must win Premier League under Unai Emery

Jens Lehmann: Arsenal must win Premier League under Unai Emery

Last season's runaway champions provide the opposition at the Emirates Stadium as Arsenal begin a season without Frenchman Arsene Wenger in the dugout for the first time since 1996.

Arsene Wenger has held talks with the Japan Football Association about becoming their new boss as he looks to make a return to management, according to reports.

Manchester City's only high-profile signing during the summer has been Riyad Mahrez, who won the Premier League with Leicester City in 2016 and has notched 39 goals and 27 assists in 139 appearances in England's top tier.

Arsenal have strengthened at the back though with German keeper Bernd Leno arriving from Bayer Leverkusen while former Juventus defender and Switzerland skipper Stephan Lichtsteiner and Greek Sokratis Papastathopoulos will add guile in defence. "The Arsenal squad is not worse than those of the other teams".

"Obviously, it remains to be seen how successful that is but that's an area he's focused on. His sessions are very intricate in that regard". For a good part, Welbeck has played on either side of attack but through the middle, Emery now prefers other players there.

Hiroshima marks 73rd anniversary of U.S. atomic bombing
Barack Obama, who had sought a policy of nuclear arms reduction, visited the site in 2016 . As of March, the number of "hibakusha" or atomic bomb survivors stood at 154,859.

Welbeck's preferred playing position is through the middle, but Arsenal are well stocked with Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang options for that spot.

Meanwhile, City won the title with a record Premier League points haul of 100.

No one needs to be reminded of how Guardiola's team blew everyone out of the title race a year ago, and they are huge favorites going into this match.

With new manager at helm, Arsenal (6th in PL last year) start their life without Arsene Wenger, hosting a home clash against Manchester City (1st in PL last season), who won the Premier League last year, beating nearly every record. He's never not analysing, even in the lead up to friendly games. "It's been great getting to know him".
