We are excited., says Arsenal boss.
Unai Emery has revealed what he expects of his Gunners as he looks forward to a new era at Arsenal.
The Spaniard highlighted how big the tie between his side and Manchester City is, as they "have a lot of ambition to start" their campaign at the Emirates.
"We are excited," he said as arsenal.com quoted. "We have a lot of ambition to start [well] on Sunday against the last winners of the Premier League. Also, I think that it's a big and great match that we can play to start this season."
Regarding what he expects to see from his team on Sunday, he replied: "We are working to improve each match and each training session. But Sunday, we need to show on the pitch our performance at a big level. The position is demanding our best moments tactically and also individually.
"It's for that, that on Sunday I want first to be together with our supporters. It helps, if we’re together, for the players to show their best performance and to transmit with every supporter the quality, the energy and the spirit to go forward against Manchester City."
And, on the best way to try and play against Pep Guardiola's team, he said: "It's more easy to speak here than to do it on the pitch. City, I think, after two years of working with Guardiola they have more stability, more security and when you watch City's matches, they are playing with a very, very great confidence in themselves.
"Also, I think that Guardiola's coaching is clear in this team. For that, we are working this week and preparing for this game and preparing for the opposition, against City, as a collective and as individual players. Above all, it's about confidence in ourselves to play the best match on Sunday. We are to think only to win the match."
