Now, it is almost certain who the first line up of the teams are but there is need to analyze how the performance of the different players will motive them in today’s match. Team Head Coach of Man City, Pep Guardiola, who won the 2017/2018 English Premier league has continued to be a great star shinning to show the players light.

Manchester city will be strongly motivated by the performance of the World Cup Bronze medalist, Kelvin De Brune whose style of play is exceptional in the City squad. Kun Aguero, in combination with Bernardo Silva’s pre-season performance will be motivated to strike down the gunners in all form. According to Guardiola, Leroy Sane and new record signing, Riyad Mahrez are expected to start on either flank.

Fernadiho who has been in superb form is expected to motivate the likes of Menduy, Lapte, Stones and Walker forming a formidable backline giving Ederson an easy role in stopping the ball from crossing the goal line.

Man city is expected to replicate their dominance over the gunners from the last season’s game. So, Arsenal FC or Man City FC?

On the other hand, Head coach Unai Emery could hand debuts to Bernd Leno, Lucas Torreira and Sokratis Papastathopoulos in a bit to add fresh air to the old Arsenal team .The Emirate Stadium has experienced some cool breeze ever the exit of former Head coach, Arsene Wenger. Unai Emery who won the French league last season will have to pass the first test of his career in a bitter test against the defending champions. He is expected to replicate his glory at the French Ligue 1 where he motivated PSG to glory. Some people have linked his success at PSG to the ever flowing cash available to buy the likes of Neymar but Unai who has not seen such fund in Arsenal FC has to prove his doubters wrong with a win over Man city.

The Gunners will be playing a 4-5-1 formation with Monreal, Mustafi, Sokrates and Lichsteiner in the defense, Ransey, Torreira in back midfield, Aubameyang, Ozil and Mkhitaryan in forward midfield while Lacazette will be ready to give dangerous strikes against City.
