Arsenal have added full-back Stephen Lichtsteiner (Juventus), goalie Bernd Leno (Bayer Leverkusen), centre-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos (Borussia Dortmund), midfielder Lucas Torreira (Sampdoria), midfielder Matteo Guendouzi (Lorient) and of course new manager Unai Emery who stepped down as PSG boss after winning the French domestic treble.

The best odds for all results of the match are City at 24/25 favourites, a draw at 3-1 and an Arsenal win also at 3-1. After their impressive dismantling of Chelsea last Sunday in the Community Shield where Pep’s men should have scored way more than the 2 goals they got, Unai Emery will know he has a serious challenge on his hands but after a decent pre-season with some quality additions and crucially only a few departures, Gooners will be hoping for a positive start for the man who takes the Arsenal reins from Arsene Wenger.
