Premier League – Opening Week.
It is only the first game of the new season but we can already say that Arsenal will not be crowned champion of England by next June. Arsenal starts season with a logic 2-0 defeat at home against England’s best team.
The Gunners played a very disappointing game and the difference between the champions Manchester City and Arsenal was blatant. After only 15 minutes Sterling found the net to score the first goal for the Citizens this year. Coach Emery has an immense task in front of him if Arsenal wants to have a chance to compete for Champions League qualifying spots.
The Spaniard coach comment son the loss for his first game at Emirates:
“Today, Manchester City’s performance showed us that we need to continue in our process to improve. I think they deserved this result, but we were improving in the 90 minutes, like I think we need to do for the next week and the next match on the pitch. In the second half, it’s the moment that maybe we had chances to get a better result.
I want to continue the process to build our team. I think we finished with the spirit I want and the team, for 90 minutes, they ran, they tried and they pushed. But I think we need to improve collectively and also individually. But I think this process is normal today against a great team like Manchester City.
In the next week we are continuing this work and against Chelsea we are going to analyze the opposition. We are going there to win, with this intention against Chelsea.”
