Unai Emery has named Laurent Koscielny as Arsenal's main captain though the defender remains out with an ankle injury

The new manager, the Telegraph said, confirmed that Laurent Koscielny, now out injured, would be his main captain, but that he would be backed up by Petr Cech, Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Granit Xhaka.

Raheem Sterling reached a half-century of Premier League goals as he opened the scoring for Manchester City against Arsenal on Sunday.

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.

"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".

"This 90 minutes [showed] the spirit I want [but] we need to improve".

Sterling has two years left to run on the five-year deal signed when he moved to City from Liverpool in July 2015.

"They have a team with stability, playing how they want - and we are starting".

It remains to be seen how much football Cech, now second in the pecking order, plays this season as Arsene Wenger in recent years used to utilised his second-string stopper in the cup competitions but it's not known whether Emery will do the same.

The 30-year-old has worn the arm-band for the Catalan giants on numerous occasions before he was named vice-captain since 2015. According to the rule governing the game in Spain, only three non-EU players are allowed in each La Liga matchday squad.


"For that maybe also they are in the team more leaders who show this capacity. But I think this process today is normal, especially against a team like Manchester City".

The goal also marked a personal milestone for the 23-year-old star, who played a key role in City's Premier League triumph in 2017-18.

The winger cut inside from the left flank and turned Arsenal's defence inside-out before firing past Petr Cech. "He is injured, the first captain in this group is Koscielny".
