Emery needs four transfer windows to impact Arsenal - Wright

It's not a Premier League season without a goalkeeping controversy after one game.

And - despite the £22.5m summer arrival of Bernd Leno - Starsport understands Unai Emery has kept faiith in Cech for the London derby against Chelsea at the weekend.

Furthermore, Arsenal chiefs want Emery to continue making big decisions - like starting Matteo Guendouzi against City - and are confident the results will come.

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech called Bayer Leverkusen "sad" after the German side appeared to mock him on Twitter.

Both clubs were edged out of the top-four race last season with Chelsea finishing in 5th and Arsenal 6th and the remit for their new managers is to secure Champions League football.

Unai Emery, Manager of Arsenal speaks with Mesut Ozil of Arsenal during the Premier League match between Arsenal FC and Manchester City at Emirates Stadium on August 12, 2018 in London, United Kingdom.

After the game, the goalkeeper had insisted he enjoys Emery's new way of playing.

When Bernardo Silva scored for Manchester City against Arsenal on Sunday, Pep Guardiola turned to Mikel Arteta and threw his arms around his second-in-command.

The Gunners were deservedly beaten in the Spaniard's first competitive game in charge of the club, ending with 42% possession on home soil.

"We want a good preparation before and a good response on the pitch to that preparation". They are two goalkeepers who are important for us. They press, press, press so why do you try and play out when they press, press, press? He can play at left-back but his position in the team is more at right-back.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles started against City but had to be replaced early on by Stephan Lichtsteiner after suffering a leg fracture that will keep him out for at least two months.

"They need more structure, but Emery has been there, what, six weeks really", Laurens added.

One problem area for Emery may be solved by the return of Nacho Monreal at left-back.
