Danny Welbeck was a player in demand in the summer transfer window, with Everton, Newcastle United and Southampton among the clubs reported to be interested in the Arsenal forward.

At the Emirates, Arsenal have enjoyed just one win in their last six league clashes with Man City (D3 L2), courtesy of a 2-1 win in December 2015.

"I want the team to show that we are together with our supporters, and I want the team to show everybody their best performance".

Emery praised City boss Guardiola, whom he faced at Barcelona while coaching Almeria and Valenca, saying: "His career as a player is bigger than mine and his career as a coach is also bigger than mine". 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.
