Arsenal's Sanchez out of opener due to abdominal strain


And, ahead of Arsenal's Premier League opener against Leicester City tonight, Wenger hopes the forward can show the club, fans and critics he is capable of playing on one of the biggest stages in club football.

The main problem of the new football season is the absurdity of big-time football: the impossible sums of money, the reckless spending of it, salaries that make your nose bleed from sheer envy, the preposterous self-regard of so numerous players, the self-serving nonsense of the managers.

Mahrez was on Arsenal's radar last summer fresh from his exploits to help Leicester win the league title, but he chose to remain at the King Power Stadium for another season agreeing to a new deal until the summer of 2020.

Former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez returns to the Premier League after spells in Spain and Germany.

Arsenal are ready to make Alexis Sanchez the highest-paid player in the Premier League, in order to convince the 28-year-old to stay at the club.

The last time Arsene Wenger and his side won the league was back in 2003/04 win the famous and record setting "Invincibles" team. "Mesut Ozil ... we have plenty of the same type of players".

ARSENAL'S ALEXANDRE LACAZETTE got his Premier League career off to the flawless start against Leicester at the Emirates this evening. It seemed that half the fans wanted to move on from Arsene Wenger, while the other were wary of what the unknown could bring.

"We were never close".

However, adjusting their respective totals in accordance with the points system for the European Golden Shoe, where Premier League goals are worth two points compared to Ligue 1's 1.5, Lacazette has only "outscored" Giroud by 141 points to 138 over that period. "The biggest worry is Manchester City and that's the problem".

Arsenal regained their footing and Welbeck had a number of chances go missing, first seeing his shot blocked after a fine one-two with Elneny, before showing good control to take the ball to the endline, but his cut-back pass could not find anyone.
