Unai Emery Confirms Three Arsenal Players Likely To Leave

With Arsenal to host reigning Premier League champions Manchester City in the season opener on Sunday, Emery could be in for a baptism of fire.

At the Emirates, Arsenal have enjoyed just one win in their last six league clashes with Man City (D3 L2), courtesy of a 2-1 win in December 2015.

Speaking in an interview with BBC Sport, Wright said: "They start against a City team who know exactly what they are doing, but this might be a good time to play them because some of their players are late back from the World Cup".

The 46-year-old Spaniard, who has brought in five fresh faces in the close season since replacing French legend Arsene Wenger, beleives City will have the upper hand as they have a consistent style due to manager Pep Guardiola being with them for two years and he is still bedding himself in at the Gunners.

It's expected he'll have no shortage of suitors, with reports suggesting a clutch of Premier League clubs are after the scrawl of the vastly-experienced former Manchester United forward.

"I want the team to show that we are together with our supporters, and I want the team to show everybody their best performance".

"When we were in Spain each match against Barcelona with Valencia is very exciting and very demanding for me also to prepare this match".

With European transfer windows still open, Emery said goalkeeper David Ospina, forward Joel Campbell and right-back Carl Jenkinson could still leave.

The new Arsenal boss admits Guardiola has shone more both as a player and manager, but has welcomed the challenge posed by his counterpart ahead of Sunday afternoon's showdown, live on Sky Sports.

"But the other players are with us and we are going to work in the Emirates the day before the match with all the players".

"But I like to play more against him because it's demanding for your preparation to try to win against his teams".
