Emery: We want to play 'with style and with a personality...

Arsenal coach Unai Emery is eager for his team to play football with "style" and "personality" this season.

Arsene Wenger's successor wants the Gunners to be "full of action" as he explained how he expects his Gunners to start the new Premier League campaign, which begins at home against champions Manchester City on August 12.

"Each match, you are looking for every player to transmit intensity, aggression, to show that they want to win and are prepared to work hard to win. We want to do that with style, with a personality, with protagonists on the pitch," Emery said, quoted on Arsenal.com.

"We want every player to create things and find things when they're on the ball. When we are without the ball, we also want to show ambition to recover the ball quickly.

"We want to demonstrate that not only in every match, but also in every training session.

"We want our players to be energetic, full of action with or without the ball and as protagonists on the pitch doing things."

Looking ahead to the visit of City, Emery said: "With all the energy of the players and the supporters, we know we can start the season with a big performance against a big team."
