3 things to consider - Unai Emery’s first win

The 36-year-old survived a heart-stopping moment in the first half when he nearly scored an own-goal, leading some to ask why summer signing Bernd Leno didn't start between the sticks.

Speaking to reporters (via BBC Sport), Emery said that there is more to come from the young midfielder.

Witty users also hit back at the Bayer official account highlighting a mistake by Leno when he was playing for Leverkusen after completely missing the ball from a back pass that subsequently resulted in an own goal.

"The fans have been waiting for many years for a top quality, experienced central midfielder but against Manchester City, they started a 19-year-old from the French second division".

Arsenal signed Leno from Leverkusen this summer but new head coach Unai Emery still opted to start Cech against City in their season-opening Premier League game.

"I am very happy with his [Cech's] performance", stated Emery.

The new boss starts life in English football with a baptism of fire as Arsenal host defending champions Manchester City on Sunday, where Emery has five new signings to potentially include in his starting line-up.

After taking over from Arsene Wenger, Emery has emphasised the importance of using the goalkeeper to help play the ball out from the back, and it was clear that his players are still getting used to the new system.

"We are going to play away but we need to keep our personality, keep our mentality", he said.

"We didn't lose because of our personality, our idea, our style. We are in this process". "We want to prepare for each match by putting difficulty and demands on the opposition".

"That's the strength of the squad, a misjudgement probably, but no-one knows because we are not there in training".

Arsenal still have issues at left-back heading into the game, with Ainsley Maitland-Niles ruled out for up to eight weeks after fracturing his leg against Man City when filling in in that role. Luckily for the Gunners, Nacho Monreal has returned to full training and could deputize against Chelsea, or Stephan Lichtsteiner could move over from right back to play left back. "The two options we have now are Nacho Monreal and Lichtsteiner to continue in this position", Emery told reporters.
