Pep Guardiola, spent a long time in the dressing room after their midweek defeat and I think they might be keen to get back on the pitch and send a message to Liverpool, who have to go to West Ham on Monday evening.

With Arsenal travelling to City in the Premier League on Sunday, the 25-year-old could make his Gunners debut against the reigning champions. "I think he and Sean are very comparable in the way they approach their craft on a daily basis".

Alisson Becker, Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah have formed one of the best spines in world football and Liverpool have lost just one Premier League game all season. It's far tougher for them this time and this week they face Arsenal, Everton and Chelsea in a week, starting five points behind leaders Liverpool. "It's very hard but I trust in my players".

William Gallas says Arsenal need to approach Sunday's clash at The Etihad like Liverpool FC did in their Champions League victory over Manchester City last season to have any chance of winning.

"But he's fundamentally a player who fits well in a functioning team, who moves the ball well, who's positionally and tactically very bright".

Arsenal have been boosted by the news that Laurent Koscielny has returned to full training after making a swift recovery from a jaw injury that he sustained against Man Utd last month.

"The players know exactly the way we are as a strong team and that is what we have to do".

'We can not tell players to be something he doesn't feel.

"But this style can work for you like Newcastle and Crystal Palace won against them". He arrives with Emery's men sitting fourth in the table albeit level on points with Chelsea after 24 matches played and two ahead of a resurgent Manchester United.

"We feel like we have a great teacher in Unai", he said.

'Of course I believe. "With Ramsey going out, Suarez can come in and play in a similar sort of position but the place they really needed strengthening was in defence", Smith told Sky Sports. "It will be interesting to have this player in our squad".

"But we have pressure because we were the champions past year and everybody expects us to be one of the title challengers".

All of Guardiola's other title successes have been won from the front giving him something new to aim for this season.
