  • Premier League predictions

The transfer window is closed for Premier League clubs, although they are stil allowed to sell and loan out players.

Cech is expected to be handed the armband tomorrow when Manchester City visit the Emirates for the first Arsenal game in 22 years not managed by Arsene Wenger. Today, we had a meeting with the players to close all the possibilities to leave or come with more players.

"We want to start well, we want to play and we want to show our quality, our work in this month tactically and with our spirit", said Emery.

But the 46-year-old former Paris St Germain boss is looking forward to taking on fellow Spaniard Pep Guardiola in his Gunners bow.

Spanish giants FC Barcelona have not given up on signing Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba , according to reports coming out of Spain.

"We are excited", he said.

City won the league by 19 points last season, smashing a host of records as former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach Guardiola collected a maiden Premier League crown. Despite his emphasis on a new way, the manager's selections represent an expression of confidence in players who have been at Arsenal for years during which the team has been accused of suffering from a chronic lack of leadership. To say it here is easier than doing it on the pitch.

"We are working on the possibility to work with Ainsley, who has experience in this position".

Silva, who featured in all three of Manchester City's warm-up matches as well as the Community Shield, looks set to start against Arsenal on Sunday.

Kovacic 'really happy' to be at Chelsea
It was a hard period for the London club after many headlines generated had to do with their star players leaving. Arrizabalaga has played 53 La Liga matches for Athletic Bilbao since breaking into the team in 2016.

'Winning is the best motivation and we will try to continue what we have done.

Emery added that Stan Kroenke's bid to take sole ownership of the club could be positive for the club.

The Arsenal Supporters' Trust described the move as a "dreadful day" for the club, but Emery is more optimistic.

"I want to do it one way with this personality, enjoying with our supporters".

In the absence of injured defender and skipper Laurent Koscielny, Emery has picked out four more "leaders" among his squad - and Cech is one of those.
