Succeeding a man whose 22-year reign moulded the modern Arsenal was never going to be a cakewalk, but Unai Emery can be under no illusion as to how far off the pace his new club have fallen after this 2-0 defeat to a Manchester City side who barely got out of second gear.
There's plenty more to come, but this was a pleasing start.
Recording of Devin Nunes at private McMorris Rodgers fundraiser makes national headlines
Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) attended to speak on her behalf and try to help fill her campaign coffers ahead of a tight upcoming race. We have seen this also with Speaker Ryan, who has said he will not put issues on the floor that the president will not sign.
Look at what Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech did in the first half, almost kicking the ball into his own net.
Sterling went past two weak challengers to put City ahead in the first quarter of an hour with his 50th league goal. Sterling found the overlapping Benjamin Mendy in the move which led to Bernardo Silva's goal.
But Neville believes Emery needs three more transfer windows in order to improve Arsenal.
Arsenal still looked anxious and Cech nearly scored a weird own goal when his miscued pass across the penalty area crept wide of his unguarded net. "We are satisfied for many, many reasons", Guardiola told Sky Sports.
He said: "Let's not judge Arsenal on this performance against the best team in the land". On this evidence, Emery also has lots of work to do to ensure the Gunners have a robust-enough defence to challenge seriously for the top four. The off-the-ball pressing became disjointed at times, but the intensity was there.

Arsenal hosted Manchester City on the opening weekend of the Premier League season on Sunday afternoon.
They did not capitulate in the way they so often did under Arsene Wenger, and there were signs that they were better-prepared tactically as well.
"His experience here at Arsenal and the Premier League is very important and will give us all the information and performances in his quality".
"Those are the benefits of having numbers centrally", said Carragher during the second half. Kyle Walker will overlap more for City than for England, where he was shifted inside into a back three.
It seemed the goal might open the floodgates, but Cech was in solid form and kept the score down to just one. "He has this experience for continuing to defend our goal", Emery said. "To help positions across the team with positive spirit".
