Britain's TelegraPhnewspaper has reported that new Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, has named five Arsenal captains with Petr Cech expected to lead side against Manchester City tomorrow.

Arsenal take on City without injured defensive duo Laurent Koscielny and Sead Kolasinac, while Aaron Ramsey will be hoping to be fit to take his place in midfield.

Alongside him is the sort of player Arsenal have needed for a while, with Uruguay World Cup ace Lucas Torreira arriving to compete in a combative role for the Gunners and providing extra protection to a defence that was far too frail last season. We only have three players: "Carl Jenkinson, David Ospina and Joel Campbell, with the possibility to leave.", Emery told the club's official website. Arsenal also signed veteran defenders Stephan Lichtsteiner - who is the Switzerland captain - and Sokratis Papastathopoulos, who are also seen as strong personalities both on and off the pitch. "If we are good and consistent like last season then we have a good chance".

"For me this is a new way and a new process, the past is important for this club and the people working here, but we are starting something new with the same players".

"We are excited", he said.

For now, Emery is simply looking to build an identity and improve. For now, Southampton are a real option, primarily if he seeks regular first-team football, or Bournemouth, but Everton, another prospective suitor, might not want him now.

Emery faces a trial by fire against the defending champions in the opening game, and said that game will give a better indication of whether the Gunners can compete for the title this season. "We want to show our quality, or work in this month tactically and our spirit". The traditional curtain raiser to the top flight season in England - the Community Shield game between Manchester City and Chelsea - was an indication that Guardiola's team will still be the team to beat.
