Arsenal boss Unai Emery concedes they face a tough task overcoming champions Manchester City in their season opener.

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.

Emery became Arsenal's first new manager since 1996 after Wenger stepped down in May following a 22-year reign. "It's for that on Sunday I want first to be together with our supporters".

City's defence gets under way at Arsenal on Sunday and Guardiola confirmed he could select World Cup stars including Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne despite their lack of a pre-season.

Factor in that £72m of La Liga's take came from one transaction - Kepa's move to Chelsea - and the contrast is even more stark. Following his performance, his transfer value skyrocketed and he soon became one of the most sought- after defender in Europe.

"These five players are in this possibility to be the captain", Emery told the club's official website.

Stephan Lichtsteiner, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Lucas Torreira, Matteo Guendouzi and Bernd Leno were all drafted in. "I'm not here to say we have to win by 20 points", Guardiola said at a news conference on Friday.

"The past is very important in this club, with the people that were working here".

The coach said he expected midfielder Ainsley Maitland-Niles to start in that position against City, although there was a small chance that Monreal would be ready.

For now, Emery is simply looking to build an identity and improve.

Guardiola took time to settle too, but he answered his critics last season and his team's performance in the Community Shield suggested that they are raring to go once more.

"I met the Kroenke family in Atlanta and he gave us his commitment in this project with Arsenal", added Emery. "But we want to play with the idea to create a winning mentality". 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.
