Carragher: New Arsenal boss Emery compared to Rafa Benitez

His experience here in Arsenal, in the Premier League, is very important to give us his information, his performances and his quality.

Welbeck's situation at Arsenal was affected by the January capture of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who is not reportedly primed to play on the left side of attack, or even Alex Iwobi who is another option for Emery, as well as the fact that the Nigerian recently signed a long-term deal at Arsenal.

Wenger's remarkable feats in the first half of his reign will stand the test of time, but few Arsenal supporters lamented his departure after 14 years without a league title.

Britain's TelegraPhnewspaper has reported that new Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, has named five Arsenal captains with Petr Cech expected to lead side against Manchester City tomorrow.

Welbeck, 27, did not depart before the end of the Premier League's transfer window but he could still join a European club before the end of August.

Aaron Ramsey has won his race to be fit for the match though, with Arsenal looking to improve on their poor record against City last season which saw Pep Guardiola's team beat the Gunners three times - including in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley. "If we are good and consistent like last season then we have a good chance". The contract is for the club to speak with the player.

Regarded as a football savant cut from the same cloth as the obsessive Wenger, Emery has impressed Arsenal's players with his detailed video analysis, spending up to 12 hours ahead of each game working on footage for his squad.

Emery also announced his choices as club captains. Cech's place in goal is threatened by the new signing Bernd Leno. So we can expect their game against Arsenal to be a mouth-watering encounter.

"Arsenal are going to play this pressing game and could they catch City off guard?"

"Our style with the ball is to be protagonists, to do things with combinations, to control the match with the positioning of the ball", Emery told Sky Sports.

He said: "A lot of players from our team, they really wanted to win".
