Laurent Koscielny named Arsenal's main captain by head coach Unai Emery

Premier League predictions

A cynic might suggest Emery's feat of winning the Europa League three years in a row with Sevilla was the most relevant achievement on his CV prior to his appointment at Arsenal - who will compete in Europe's second-tier competition for a second successive season.

This comes after an unprecedented summer spend in 2017 saw the former Barcelona coach totally restructure his team, turning them into Premier League winners. Arsenal's decision to cash-in on a player with one year left on his current deal comes as no surprise as Emery looks set to trim his squad even further.

"I met the Kroenke family in Atlanta and he gave us his commitment in this project with Arsenal", added Emery.

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher is predicting that we will see a much more tactically astute and disciplined Arsenal side this season under the North London club's new boss Unai Emery.

"We need two things: quality players, which we have, and then organisation. With the same players and also our new players with us, and with a new culture and new staff".

Europe's heat record could be broken in Spain and Portugal
According to him, temperatures in the Iberian peninsula may be higher than those recorded in the last 40 years. Wildfires have raged in recent weeks even within the Arctic Circle as forests become tinderboxes.

"Emery has had longer with his team than anyone else - they've largely all been together for the whole of pre-season - and they could potentially cause an upset against City on day one".

'The representation for every player and in every time in the season [there is] the capacity to do that.

"Arsenal are going to play this pressing game and could they catch City off guard?"

The players will train at the stadium today ahead of tomorrow's opener against Manchester City - a departure from the traditional methods employed by his predecessor. But these five players are in this possibility to be the captain'. There were a lot of positives in the pre-season games the Gunners played, especially the seamless induction of young players like Matteo Guendouzi and Emile Rowe Smith into the first team. But in these two moments in the match we need to work.
