Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger in talks to become new Japan manager

Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger in talks to become new Japan manager

Reigning champions Manchester City kick off the new season away to Arsenal, under new management with Unai Emery succeeding Arsene Wenger, while rivals Manchester United start their campaign at home to Leicester City at Old Trafford.

A new era is set to begin for Arsenal. The Gunners will start off their new era with as hard a match as they could have asked for.

Goalie Bernd Leno has joined the club from Bayer Leverkusen. The preseason has also been a success for Arsenal, who have not registered a single 90-minute defeat during their summer preparations (W3 D2), with forwards Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette netting four goals each during that stretch. He'll hope for a repeat of his last trip to the Emirates when his City side went up 3-0 after 33 minutes and coasted for the rest of the match.

However, former Premier League victor Lehmann has dismissed the idea suggesting that other teams like Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United too could compete for the title and it won't be a lopsided campaign like last time. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?

The club has however released a statement on the current injuries it has ahead of their match against Pep Guardiola's men. He joins an already prolific attacking collective of the Citizens, who were led by Sergio Aguero's 30 goals in all competitions previous year.

The defender has been heavily linked with a move to Everton but faced late competition from Manchester United . It now seems that United are buying Harry McGuire from Leicester, however.

And with both clubs beginning fresh journeys under new managers, former Arsenal star Smith feels those two could be out of the Champions League spots come the end of the season.

The Gunners' squad is looking bloated and reports from ESPN and the Telegraph say Unai Emery is happy to let any of those three players leave before the deadline on Thursday.

Saints boss Mark Hughes will be desperate to bolster his attacking ranks before this evening's 5pm deadline, after his side's impotency in front of goal almost cost them their Premier League status last season.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Arsenal could line up in 2018-19.
