Emery confirms Arsenal captain for the season

Arsenal FC head coach Unai Emery during the Pre-season friendly between Arsenal and SS Lazio at Friends Arena

And the team for 90 minutes, they ran, they tried, they pushed, but I think we need to improve [everything], collectively and also individually.

But confidence levels are growing under Emery after a positive pre-season and while expectations are cautious for his first campaign, the former Sevilla and Paris Saint-Germain tactician has given an insight into how he will look to transform Arsenal's fortunes - though preached that he needs time to implement his methods. He will play alongside Shkodran Mustafi and fans will want better performances than witnessed in pre-season. Also, they are building one team with security, with good players, with great stability, playing like they want, and we are starting.

"We arrived after a hard season [in 2016, when Guardiola had made a point of contacting Sterling during Euro 2016 to offer his support] and I told him I wanted to help him and would like him to be happy".

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has announced Laurent Koscielny as club captain.

The players will train at the stadium today ahead of tomorrow's opener against Manchester City - a departure from the traditional methods employed by his predecessor.
