Emery wants Arsenal to play on the front foot

Emery wants Arsenal to play on the front foot

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that Spanish striker Lucas Perez has joined Premier League side West Ham from Arsenal in a deadline day deal.

Alan Smith says Unai Emery must work out how to get the most out of Mesut Ozil if he wants to succeed at Arsenal.

Another advantage that Emery probably has going into Sunday's game, and by extension the rest of the season, is the fact he has had more time working with most of the players who were not on World Cup duty for their national teams.

Emery, who will lead Arsenal into their first competitive fixture under his stewardship on Sunday against Manchester City, spoke about how Ramsey is an "important" part of his plans for the future.

He scored five goals during Anderlecht's title-winning campaign in 2016-17 and also played in all 16 of their European games that season, which ended with defeat to Manchester United in the Europa League. "We only have three players, Carl Jenkinson, David Ospina and Joel Campbell, with the possibility to leave", he said.

But the 46-year-old former Paris St Germain boss is looking forward to taking on fellow Spaniard Pep Guardiola in his Gunners bow.

The coach said he expected midfielder Ainsley Maitland-Niles to start in that position against City, although there was a small chance that Monreal would be ready.

Prosecutors in Paul Manafort's financial fraud trial say they have eight witnesses left and expect to rest their case Friday. Greg Andres, an attorney with special counsel Robert Mueller's office, said the prosecution is running ahead of schedule.

"On Sunday I want first to be together with our supporters".

Emery's first Premier League clash in charge of Arsenal couldn't be any harder against the record-breaking reigning champions but he will be desperate to make his mark immediately.

No one needs to be reminded of how Guardiola's team blew everyone out of the title race past year, and they are huge favorites going into this match. He will play alongside Shkodran Mustafi and fans will want better performances than witnessed in pre-season.

"I met the Kroenke family in Atlanta and he gave us his commitment in this project with Arsenal", added Emery.

I think it's an ambitious club and that's what attracts me the most.

Arsenal are also without long-term casualty Laurent Koscielny, while England global Danny Welbeck also misses out.
