Arsenal vs Leicester City 11 Aug 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

Arsenal turned around the league's first Friday opener in the closing minutes at Emirates Stadium.

Wenger insists he will not relent on Sanchez's future though, claiming nothing has changed from last season and that he will not be sold.

"Sanchez will not be available", Wenger said. He has a little abdominal strain that he caught on Sunday morning in training, before he came to Wembley.

"Yes", Wenger said in July, as quoted by The Daily Telegraph.

"I don't know if it is two weeks or one more week, but he will not be available".

"He will not play at Stoke". Manchester City are said to be circling, but Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich's interest appears to have cooled.

"I opened the door for him at some stage as it's important for him to play but I don't want him to go", Wenger said at the post-match news conference. During most of the game, the team's defence left much to be desired - that Vardy managed get past six defenders to score his second goal is testament to that. "(PSG) are looking for (Kylian) Mbappe, that's what I read in the papers.

That's unmanageable so to bring one more player in for the sake of it would be stupid, but if we find an exceptional one, we will do it.

If it is, no matter - here are 11 things you might have forgotten from the end of last season, starting with...

"Manchester came to me, they talked with my agent, but nothing happened, because Chelsea would not negotiate me in any way and I'm very happy at Chelsea". I identified myself with him a lot. "He wasn't right and he hasn't been right ever since". This should not be a problem for the Gunners are Alex Iwobi has been in great form in preseason so he should take the Chileans place. "Last year he was much more stable". Personally I think he is a hugely talented player, he's on the way up and he will continue to move up because the potential is there.

Romelu Lukaku will be tasked with spearheading United's attack following his £75m move from Everton and Mourinho believes it is imperative that other players chip in with goals.
