Former Gunners keeper Jens Lehmann: Arsenal are capable of winning Premier League

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.

Ian Wright believes that Arsenal are capable of beating Manchester City in their Premier League opener on Sunday.

Unai Emery is Arsenal's new coach. Lehmann was part of Wenger's coaching staff previous year but was let go as part of the backroom changes. Lehmann commented, "I see a lot of potential at Chelsea, who have a new manager in Maurizio Sarri".

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. The new era begins this weekend when they host defending champions Manchester City.

Asked specifically about his chat with Silva, he continued: 'I did not need a lot of convincing. Everton always was a big option for me, especially after speaking with the coach, Marco Silva.

Japan had an underwhelming group stage campaign at the World Cup, going through to the last 16 as runners-up where they lost to Belgium after throwing away a two-goal lead. The Gunners will start off their new era with as hard a match as they could have asked for.

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

Manager Mauricio Pochettino has remained outwardly calm about the lack of activity in the market despite calling on the club's owners to take "risks" at the end of last season.

He makes it hard for teams to play against them and will play 4-2-3-1.

It's clear that Emery has attempted to instil a new philosophy at the Emirates and that has clearly started from the goalkeeper.

In the three matches between the two clubs last season, City won 9-1 on aggregate.

But Emery will hope for immediate success this season having enjoyed a fine transfer window, signing goalkeeper Bernd Leno, defenders Stephan Lichtsteiner and Sokratis, and midfielders Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi.

Elsewhere, fresh from their Championship exploits, promoted teams Wolverhampton Wanderers, Cardiff City and Fulham take on Everton, Bournemouth and Crystal Palace respectively.
