EPL: Manchester City vs Arsenal: Emery speaks on Pep Guardiola

Having signed Denis Suarez on deadline day there had been much speculation as to whether or not the Spaniard's arrival signalled the end of Mesut Ozil's time in Unai Emery's side.

Smith reasoned: "Arsenal fans would have loved to have seen a little bit more business, but they did manage to bring in Denis Suarez".

"I will make my decision tomorrow but if he starts I have confidence in him", Emery said when asked if Suarez would go straight into the Arsenal team on Sunday.

Suarez has joined Arsenal on loan until the summer with an option to buy. The club worked very well.

"I used to watch Bergkamp and Henry - they're both legends of the club and hopefully we can follow in their footsteps".

"This is the least hopeful I have been for an Arsenal game ever, I fear they could give us a real hiding and I think they will win 3-0, with the title race back on".

"His career is a very big career".

City will move two points behind leaders Liverpool if they return to winning ways at the Etihad on Sunday.

"It will be a tough match - we are playing against the best", he added.

"For example, the progress from Liverpool is very important progress and now they are the favourites because they have the lead". Maybe they have lost some matches but that is an accident.

"But this style can work for you like Newcastle and Crystal Palace won against them".

"It is very hard to break their style and impose yours".

"But we are looking forward to playing, to showing that we can [win] and want [to win]".

"I think he's more likely to have an impact as a technical, continuity player, than necessarily a player that raises the level of the entire team".

Hector Bellerin underwent a successful operation on his ACL injury this week but Emery is not expecting to have the full-back available for several months.

"It's a big injury, it's a long time", Emery said.

The 25-year-old can play on either wing, but former Gunners defender Keown believes it is Suarez's ability to play in central midfield which poses a threat to Xhaka.
