“I think the win over Arsenal gives us more confidence going into the new season because we know that we can do it.” Touaizi explained to ManCity.com. “We have to work harder, but we will do it.

“It’s an amazing feeling to come back against the current Champions especially in our first game of the season.

“We still have things to work on defensively, but once we’ve had more time together and worked hard we will overcome those issues.

“The whole match was a bit crazy. Last season I played in some exciting games but nothing on this level!”
