Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, has revealed the five captains he will have in his squad, as the 2018/2019 season kicks off.

With the tactical prowess of Emery in sharp contrast to Arsene Wenger, his successor, you can expect the Gunners not to shy away from taking the game to Guardiola's men.

"Maybe there will be more leaders in the team to show this captaincy, not just in the captains' group".

Asked by reporters the players who could still leave this month, Emery was quoted as saying by the club's website, "Today, we had a meeting with the players to close all the possibilities to leave or come with more players".

The club's official website has confirmed a couple of long-term injuries with Sead Kolasinac out for 6-8 weeks and Laurent Koscielny due to return at the end of the year.

Arsenal have also signed Juventus defender Stephan Lichtsteiner, Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno, Lorient teenager Matteo Guendouzi and Borussia Dortmund defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos in a busy summer transfer window.

"I think that Guardiola's coaching is clear in this team", said Emery.

"I want one thing, because it's very important for us and for the player, is take confidence".

Emery speaks English far from fluently but his command of the language has improved since his appointment in May and he hopes his team have made similar strides during the summer.

"I want to do it one way with this personality, enjoying with our supporters".

"We are working on the possibility to work with Ainsley, who has experience in this position". I believe in me, I believe in the players, I believe in the club.
