Unai Emery does not want Danny Welbeck to leave Arsenal

But he does look set to leave Arsenal, with new Gunners boss Unai Emery having judged him surplus to requirements.

The game against City will be Arsenal's first in the Premier League without Arsene Wenger as manager since September 1996. We also need time, but now I am happy because I think the players are improving.

Asked by reporters the players who could still leave this month, Emery was quoted as saying by the club's website, "Today, we had a meeting with the players to close all the possibilities to leave or come with more players".

Koscielny usually wore the armband last season as well, as club captain Per Mertesacker rarely played.

Stephan Lichtsteiner, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Lucas Torreira, Matteo Guendouzi and Bernd Leno were all drafted in.

Emery said he is working hard toward instilling a new mentality in the team, but that it could take time.

"I met the Kroenke family in Atlanta and he gave us his commitment in this project with Arsenal", the Spaniard added.

'If we play good and we are consistent we have a chance to repeat the Premier League.

Unai Emery says that he will decide his starting lineup tomorrow but it's un clear whether the club will release it right away but it will probably be shown an hour before the match starts on Sunday. For now, Southampton are a real option, primarily if he seeks regular first-team football, or Bournemouth, but Everton, another prospective suitor, might not want him now.

The Gunners entertain Pep Guardiola's champions at the Emirates on Sunday.

Danny Welbeck began his pre-season work on Monday after enjoying a break following his exploits at the World Cup with England but he's still short of match practice so won't be considered against City.

He faces a Guardiola who is now fully into the swing of things at Manchester City and had an unparalleled domestic campaign previous year where City racked up 100 points.
