See Why Unai Emery must start Mesut Ozil against Manchester City

Liverpool ran riot at Anfield in December and Sunday's trip to Etihad Stadium represents another examination of Emery's methodology: does he insist Arsenal start on the front foot to exploit any hangover from City's midweek defeat at Newcastle or shore up a porous backline against the most potent attack in the division? They had lost their last four meetings with City in all competitions, conceding 11 goals and scoring only once, and they have famously not won away to a "Big Six" side for more than four years.

He told Sky Sports: "I've never been with him in his clubs but my impression from outside is that he's a manager who is well prepared".

By joining the north London club he reunites with Emery who managed him at Sevilla.

Denis Suarez of FC Barcelona looks on prior to the Copa del Rey Round of 16 first leg match between Levante UD and FC Barcelona at Ciutat de Valencia on January 10, 2019 in Valencia, Spain.

Guardiola said: "I'd prefer it to be like last season!"

Suarez, 25, officially completed his temporary move to the Emirates on deadline day, with the Gunners having the option to buy the Spanish midfielder following the completion of his loan spell at the end of the season. "Every player has a big ambition to show their best quality".

"Suarez is coming here because we have a lot of problems on the wing, we haven't got players to play right or left - that is the reason, " Emery explained according to Tribal.

Emery was also asked how long it would take for Denis Suarez to adapt to the league.

"Maybe Manchester City is a different example because they paid a lot and maybe we can't do that now like that, but our way is we can also do one way similar to Liverpool, similar to Tottenham".

Jürgen Klopp is continuing to push his Liverpool side ahead with full momentum to the Premier League title this season. He kept us all at it and made us aware of the challenge every time we went out to play. On Sunday, I am positive about the possibility of playing different players.

"Doing more with young players, using well players who can improve with us".

Arsenal were stunned as Sergio Aguero broke the deadlock in the opening minute but Laurent Koscielny dragged Unai Emery's men back into the game, capitalising on some poor City defending to head home from a corner.

"When we win, we always want to analyse the bad things we have done and the good things".
