Arsenal lost their first competitive match since replacing manager Arsène Wenger with Unai Emery, registering a 2-0 defeat at home to Manchester City in the opening game of the season.
The side took to the field without the Frenchman’s instructions for the first time since 1996 but found it tough against the Premier League champions on Sunday.
These were the best jokes as Unai Emery loses his first game in charge of Arsenal:

Awful defence: Check.
Passive midfield: Check.

Ederson has created more for Arsenal today than Ozil has. Unreal.
