Asked about the goal Bernardo said: "Especially at beginning of second half we knew we had to keep going to try and score the second one to finish the game".

The much anticipated clash between Arsenal and Manchester City is just a few hours away.

Benjamin Mendy makes his first Premier League start since 23 September 2017.

Manchester City will look to start its title defense on the right foot after putting up one of the finest seasons in Premier League history a year ago as it put up an astounding 100 points by winning 32 of 38 matches.

New Arsenal boss Unai Emery could start Danny Welbeck at left-back against current champions Manchester City as the Gunners' first choice full-backs Nacho Monreal and Saed Kolasinac are out injured for this afternoon's game.

Emery added that he wants each of his players, regardless of their positions on the pitch to adopt a holistic approach to the games they play. "It's just one of those things I get judged on". He'd liked to have scored a goal and he tried to, but I'm sure in the European qualifiers he will score goals for his country.

"We wanted to show our performance but it is clear against Manchester City we could not give them this win".

'Leno is starting with us, he's working very well, he played well in pre-season.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are in a new era following the appointment of Unai Emery as well as several new signings this summer.

While fans may have been hoping for an easier start to the campaign, some had said it may be the best time to play Pep Guardiola's men.

"Today is the first step".

The 68-year-old Frenchman won 17 trophies in addition to dealing with the club's stadium change and revolutionising English football's way of thinking.

We've all seen how nonchalant Hazard can be when scoring from the spot, waiting for the goalkeeper to move and commit himself before casually rolling the ball in the opposite corner. "We defended very well and were a very compact team".

Guardiola took time to settle too, but he answered his critics last season and his team's performance in the Community Shield suggested that they are raring to go once more.
