The Gunners enter the game in high spirits and are looking forward to an exhausting summer.
The club has managed to hold on to Aubameyang while Gabriel and Willian signings seem inspired by the north London outfit.

Another new name is Thomas Partey. The Ghanaian star ended his move on the deadline and could make that debut at The Etihad this weekend.
And with Pep Guardiola confirming Kevin De Bruyne will miss the game for City, the time may be perfect for Partey to get right into the action.
Obviously, City has an abundance of talent, and just because De Bruyne is missing doesn’t mean Partey will have an easy day at the office.
However, it cannot be denied that the non-playing Belgian made his day a lot easier. ‘KDB’ is one of the best midfielders in world football so of course it’s a bonus.

Partey would no doubt have confidence in his ability to tie up the city ace. But if De Bruyne got upset, the critics would be right there with the Arsenal newcomer, commenting on how he has to adapt and so on. It’s just the nature of the animal.
Mikel Arteta now has the perfect chance to almost lure Partey into the Premier League.
Yes it’s a game against a Pep Guardiola team and yes it’s a city team that is still high quality. But if you ever get an opening and invite you to bring a new player into the ring in a huge game, De Bruyne who is missing is that invitation.
