  • PREMIER LEAGUE Bernardo Silva sits down with CityTV ahead of the new season

In Unai Emery's first game in charge since replacing Arsene Wenger at the Emirates, Arsenal were outclassed by reigning champions City.

Like ourselves, I think Liverpool have had a very good transfer window, and I would rank them in the top 3 in the PL in terms of their business this summer.

It remained 1-0 for the rest of the first half, before the visitors killed off the match just after the hour mark.

But it took City just over 10 minutes to find the opener, and they were helped by more poor Arsenal defending.

Problems continued after the break, when newcomer Matteo Guendouzi misjudged an aerial ball on the halfway line, which allowed Aguero a one-on-one chance.

"For me, he's [Guardiola] the best manager in the world and the trust he has had in me has brought me on so much".

England forward Raheem Sterling only came back on Monday but opened the scoring with a 14th-minute goal at the Emirates Stadium before Bernardo Silva wrapped up a 2-0 win with a second-half strike.

Emery now has a clear sense of the task he faces, throwing his arms in the air in frustration as the goals were conceded. The last two seasons at the London Stadium have been far from good enough with us flirting with relegation on both occasions.

"We arrived after a hard season and I told him I want to help him and want him to stay".

The game in 200 words (or less): In a battle of two teams chock-full of stars, the marquee names made the greatest impact - for better and for worse - in a battle of Eastern Conference titans on Sunday. They need to take the game to City, if they do this - they will hurt this City team that looks to be flying at the moment.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles also starts at left-back in the absence of Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac, despite reports that Danny Welbeck could play there.

The England forward was outstanding despite having been back in training for less than a week after his exertions in Russian Federation and scored the opening goal as Arsenal, under new management, were swept aside at the Emirates. "We must remain grounded when we win and united when we don't". He puts pressure on us to improve and he's seen the results. We spoke at half-time about taking more responsibility for the second half, to do a little more.
