Betting Tip: @ Over 3.5 Goals @ 13/8 with williamhill

Arsenal are starting a brand new chapter after Arsene Wenger finally stood down as manager at the end of last season.

Many supporters think this decision was not before time, with the Frenchman gently nudged aside and Unai Emery is now the man briefed with restoring the Gunners to a team who can challenge for the Premier League title.

Emery might have preferred an easier opener than a clash against the champions, with Manchester City arriving at the Emirates Stadium on 11 August hoping to start as they mean to go on.

There might be a few notable players missing for the visitors, with Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus among those who played an active role in the 2018 World Cup and they could be afforded an extended break as a result.

Nevertheless, Leroy Sane didn’t make the cut for Germany and Sergio Aguero was used sparingly for Argentina, while Ederson remained on the bench for Brazil during the tournament and will be looking forward to a return to action.

Arsenal and Manchester City generally seem to serve up entertaining matches and this one should be no different, with the Gunners likely to remain an attacking team under Emery.

We wouldn’t be surprised if this was a high-scoring affair to kick things off, with City having the obvious capability to score goals and Emery needing more time to improve a defence that was too porous to be top four material last term.
