One of which was against West Ham, United's opponents on Sunday as the new Premier League season gets underway.

Ramsey and Ozil are the engine of the midfield, and I fear the Gunners will have an extremely hard time pushing the ball up the field and creating chances for new signing Alexandre Lacazette.

"Hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we spent this season", Guardiola said Friday on the eve of his side's opening game of the new Premier League season at promoted Brighton and Hove Albion.

Yes, they've lost some players too, but they still have the prolific Sergio Aguero and have a squad capable of challenging in the Premier League and Champions League.

Despite Alexis' contract situation being a worry for a large section of Arsenal fans, manager Arsene Wenger has remained adamant all summer that his top scorer from last season won't be sold and even hinted he's willing to risk the forward leaving for free next summer.

The 35-year-old was the only United player to get into double figures in the league.
