Arsenal open the season with a new manager for the first time in over two decades, but Unai Emery will not get an easy start to his Arsenal career as they open up with defending champions Manchester City.
The 68-year-old parted ways with Arsenal at the end of last season, replaced by Spaniard Unai Emery, but has made no secret of his desire to continue coaching.
However, I expect to see a different Arsenal team under Emery with no apprehensions or tentativeness, unlike Arsene Wenger's teams. Sergio Aguero is my number one pick and valued at £11million, a sizeable chunk worthy of taking up my £100 million budget.
Southampton are reportedly keen on signing the Arsenal forward.
"Each player has this quality, this characteristic to help the team as a collective".
"I want to do it one way with this personality, enjoying with our supporters".
His value at £5.0 million impacted the decision in favour of another strong choice, Bernardo Silva, with the Portuguese global missing out on selection this week. He makes it hard for teams to play against them and will play 4-2-3-1. He believes the current Arsenal squad is far more superior than the previous Premier League winning teams.
Leroy Sane was faultless in large chunks of that game and I'm predicting the German youngster to repeat the same trick.
Jürgen Klopp's side, bolstered by the likes of Brazil keeper Alisson from AS Roma, compatriot Fabinho, and fellow midfielder Guinean Naby Keïta, are the most likely to close the gap on City, who won the title by 19 points last season.
Of the three promoted clubs, Fulham and Wolverhampton Wanderers look capable of flourishing in the top flight after strengthening, but it could be a long haul for Cardiff City, who mark their return away to Bournemouth on Saturday.
