Newcastle United Not Battling Everton and Southampton For Danny Welbeck

'It is easier to speak here than to do it on the pitch, ' Emery said.

"City, I think, after two years of working with Guardiola they have more stability, more security and when you watch City's matches, they are playing with a very, very great confidence in themselves".

Danny Welbeck was a player in demand in the summer transfer window, with Everton, Newcastle United and Southampton among the clubs reported to be interested in the Arsenal forward.

The match is on Sunday, 12 August with kick-off at 4pm at the Emirates Stadium.

'I am 46, he is 47. I believe in me, I believe in the players, I believe in the club. His career as a coach is bigger than me.

Emery wants to create an environment where the whole club performs as one, that means goalkeepers thinking about attacking then the team has the ball and attackers thinking about defending when the opposition is in possession. He didn't win any meetings. But for me, I want to enjoy the way [we do it].

'Sunday is the same. The Gunners have not won the Premier League title since 2004 and they ended up in sixth place and without a trophy last term.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Pep was asked what motivates him as the new campaign fast approaches.

"We only have three players: Carl Jenkinson, David Ospina, and Joel Campbell, with the possibility to leave".

Kroenke, who already owned two-thirds of the club, announced this week that minority shareholder Alisher Usmanov had agreed to sell his 30 percent stake to him. The Arsenal Supporters" Trust insist they are "wholly against the takeover'.

Emery has added a mix of youth and experience to the squad he inherited this summer, with deals done for the likes of Stephan Lichtsteiner, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Bernd Leno and Lucas Torreira. "But my idea is to give us the best performance quickly".
