They looked more threatening and eventually, Chelsea scored, with Marcos Alonso scoring the victor for the Blues.

"We want a good preparation before and a good response on the pitch to that preparation".

While Manchester City get to gallivant off through the six clubs that have been promoted in the past two years, Arsenal will have to face another title contender - Chelsea.

"There are defensive moments and attacking moments". We are going to play away but we need to keep our personality, keep our mentality, because I think on Sunday against Manchester City, the team kept their ideas, kept their spirit in the game for the full 90 minutes, even when we were losing, and didn't let [their heads] go down.

When asked about Ozil's defensive duties Emery failed to hold back as he said in his pre-match press conference, via the Mirror: "Every player needs to do [that] in the true moment of a match".

The game saw both managers Emery and Sarri getting introduced to their first ever London Derby in the Premier League. This is always the way but it is clear that defensively we suffered three goals but also we had chances to do more goals.




The 59-year-old, however, admitted that his players made some tactical mistakes in the first half.

Cech himself admitted that he was being asked to perform differently from the majority of his career by sometimes playing nearly as a spare outfielder and had his efforts highlighted on social media by new signing Bernd Leno's former club Bayer Leverkusen.

"After this injury, I tried with Lichtsteiner, who is a player with experience".

If Torreira starts, Emery would have to choose whether fellow new signing Matteo Guendouzi or the more experienced Granit Xhaka should give way for the Uruguayan.

"We did very well for 75 minutes but inside that, 15 minutes [when Arsenal scored twice] were awful". We are going to do with him the same work and helping him, demanding also work every day. I am happy with Mesut. But, at the moment, he is doing that and I'm happy. "I want to continue the process to build our team".
