Ian Wright states his prediction for Arsenal v Man City

Arsenal have most of their players fit after very few of their players went far in the World Cup, but they still could have a few players miss out on opening day.

With new manager at helm, Arsenal (6th in PL last year) start their life without Arsene Wenger, hosting a home clash against Manchester City (1st in PL last season), who won the Premier League last year, beating nearly every record.

Despite having made 43 appearances for the Gunners last season, the 27-year-old had been tipped with a move away from the Emirates this summer.

The Spaniard is not the only new manager hoping to make an instant impact in the capital.

"I see a lot of potential in Chelsea, who have a new manager in Maurizio Sarri". He must take more risks and continue his development.

Manchester United finished second behind champions Manchester City last season as Pep Guardiola's side stormed to victory, breaking the 100-point barrier in the process.

While optimism is growing at Anfield, the same can not be said at last season's runners-up Manchester United who kick off the new season on Friday at home to Leicester City with a squad that is under-cooked, according to manager José Mourinho.

Named to England's 23-man World Cup squad, Welbeck appeared as substitute against Belgium.

As Southampton aim to put a disappointing 2017/18 season behind them, the acquisition of an England global forward would have been a massive boost.

Unai Emery now has less than 24 hours to add any more players to his side, before the window slams shut at 5pm tomorrow.

Emery has spent the most part of the preseason drilling his players and infusing in them his footballing philosophies and ideas to help them become a better team. But in these two moments in the match we need to work.

Elneny, who only signed a new deal in March, has slipped down the pecking order, with the arrivals of Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi meaning Arsenal have a number of options in defensive midfield.

Fulham host Crystal Palace while Wolves face Everton.
