Arsenal vs Manchester City: Match Preview

Arsenal are starting life without Wenger today and the new manager has a huge task on his hands, they will be facing Premier League Champions Manchester City.

Manchester City are in no doubt the team to beat in this season’s Premier League. Manchester City have not made and changes at the Etihad (in terms of coaching staff) and showed no rustiness when they won 2-0 against Chelsea last week in the Community Shield. This was a solid display despite the team missing key players who featured at the World Cup last month.
