Jens Lehmann: Arsenal must win Premier League under Unai Emery

Arsenal transfer news Unai Emery is keen to sign Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng

Emery is busy preparing for Arsenal's first game of the season against Manchester City on Sunday night.

With new manager at helm, Arsenal (6th in PL last year) start their life without Arsene Wenger, hosting a home clash against Manchester City (1st in PL last season), who won the Premier League last year, beating nearly every record.

The Frenchman knows the language and culture having briefly taken charge of Nagota Grampus Eight in 1995 before moving to Arsenal, where he enjoyed 22 hugely successful seasons.

Unai Emery believes it's "very important" that Arsenal keep hold of Aaron Ramsey amid speculation surrounding the midfielder's future.

The Spaniard is not the only new manager hoping to make an instant impact in the capital. "I see many keepers playing at his level". That is a worry because this match is against the almighty Manchester City.

"It's clear, the aim for the club is to arrive as champions, play for titles".

Fans were outraged by the decision to take the club into private ownership, describing it as a "dreadful day" for the club.

Both sides have said they are working toward a cease-fire agreement, though continued rocket fire may dampen efforts. At least two Israelis were injured by glass shards, the medical organization Magen David Adom reported.

His side will have a familiar look away to Newcastle United in Saturday's early game.

It's clear that Emery has attempted to instil a new philosophy at the Emirates and that has clearly started from the goalkeeper.

A fourth successive top-four finish would represent a good outcome for Spurs, but they will be under pressure from Chelsea and Arsenal who finished fifth and sixth past year, while big-spending West Ham could push for a top-six finish.

City showed against Chelsea that they are going to continue from where they left off last season.

Head coach Unai Emery could hand debuts to Bernd Leno, Lucas Torreira and Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

My Team: K Schmeichel (Leicester City), V Van Dijk (Liverpool), A Robertson (Liverpool), N Ake (Bournemouth), L Sane (Manchester City), P Foden (Manchester City), R Sessegnon (Fulham), Jahanbakhsh (Brighton), S Aguero (Manchester City), P Emerick-Aubameyang (Arsenal), W Zaha (Crystal Palace).
