Manager Pep Guardiola will have Benjamin Mendy available for selection after the full-back missed a large portion of last season with an injury.
Arsenal's Premier League opener against champions Manchester City tonight (11pm Brunei time) will provide an early look at how Emery is faring in cleaning up the mess left by Wenger at the Emirates Stadium.
Emery added that he wants each of his players, regardless of their positions on the pitch to adopt a holistic approach to the games they play. Arsenal rode their luck and stayed in it but City showed more than enough to suggest that they are strong enough to dominate just about everyone in the Premier League, home and away.
"We can be excellent but the others can be excellent too". After netting 23 goals for City last season, and facing some suggestions that he could not maintain that form in front of goal, this was some start. Monreal, however, came back from the World Cup with a knock and was unable to take part in any pre-season training or matches since his return.
Guardiola said: "People say we now have to forget what we did last season". The same when we are thinking defensively, I want our strikers to be thinking: "We need to protect the goalkeepers".
Predictions, Gooners? Let us know in the comments... The principles are there. But Emery insisted Welbeck won't be one of those leaving the club as the rest of the continental transfer season plays out, while saying David Ospina, Carl Jenkinson and Joel Campbell would be allowed to leave if they wanted.
Last weekend's win at Wembley saw us produce some wonderful football, and the performance here at the Emirates was no different. Nobody can assure me of that. But after that we start with a new way.
"But winning helps to win more".
"We have a lot of ambition to start well on Sunday against the last winners of the Premier League".
Matteo Guendouzi was dealt a baptism of fire by Unai Emery as the midfielder was handed his Arsenal debut against Manchester City on Sunday.
Emery arrives with a good reputation having won the Europa League three times with Sevilla and most recently worked at Paris Saint-Germain. "It was a little bit of frustration because I see these players every day and I know the quality they have in close quarters".
