Arsenal have struggled to keep pace with the likes of City, Manchester United and Chelsea over the last few years under Arsene Wenger.

He has been extremely active in the transfer market, with Lucas Torreira, Bernd Leno, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Matteo Guendouzi all arriving. "Arsenal will look at a new keeper in one or two seasons".

With new manager at helm, Arsenal (6th in PL last year) start their life without Arsene Wenger, hosting a home clash against Manchester City (1st in PL last season), who won the Premier League last year, beating nearly every record.

As his English drastically improved, so did pre-season performances and the general feeling around the club.

Given Vida's impressive World Cup outing, it would be a smart investment from Emery to acquire the Croatian's services and the centre-back's experience and know-how could prove to be pivotal during Koscielny's absence.

Gates' earlier testimony on Tuesday, meanwhile, centered on how Ukrainian businessmen paid Manafort for his consultancy work. But Kevin Downing, an attorney representing Manafort, got in one final swipe at Gates before his testimony came to an end.

"We need two things: quality players, which we have, and then organisation. His sessions are very intricate in that regard".

This coming Sunday starts the beginning of a new chapter for Arsenal football club, with Unai Emery becoming the club's boss at the start of the summer, after Arsene Wenger's 22-year love affair with the North London side came to an end. For a good part, Welbeck has played on either side of attack but through the middle, Emery now prefers other players there.

The Gunners, who finished sixth last term, face the daunting task of taking on champions Manchester City in their first game on Sunday. I expect them back in the title.

However, the forward is said to be aware that is not going to be a regular starter for the Gunners once again this season. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has also won both of his first two Premier League Matchweek 1 contests and will be more than ready to start his title defense with a bang. He's never not analysing, even in the lead up to friendly games. "It's been great getting to know him". While Arsenal's attack may be stellar, their defence is really really poor and City should be able to slice through it at will and create a lot of chances.
