Wenger admits triple injury blow ahead of Leicester clash

Wenger admits triple injury blow ahead of Leicester clash”

The Chilean has been repeatedly linked with a move away from the Emirates over the summer and as the season draws closer, it's still undecided as to whether or not Sanchez will see out the remaining year of his contract at the north London club.

Alexis Sanchez will miss Arsenal's opening two Premier League games through an abdominal injury as manager Arsene Wenger refused to reveal if the club had received any bids for the forward. "He had a little abdominal strain that he caught in training on Sunday morning before he came to Wembley". We think he will not play at Stoke.

Wenger names Dennis Bergkamp as perhaps the most skilled player he has ever worked with, before Mertesacker says he'd give Arsene Wenger a miniature World Cup trophy if he had to buy him a present.

It's hardly the ideal way to head into a new Premier League season.

"It's a long time since I spoke with Nasser because he was certainly very busy to complete the transfer of Neymar", Wenger said.

Asked if Paris Saint-Germain had made an approach for Sanchez, Wenger replied: "No".

"(PSG) are looking for (Kylian) Mbappe, that's what I read in the papers.

Those are the thoughts of Arsenal legend Ian Wright.

None more so than the performances of Kolasinac, whose goal capped a hugely impressive afternoon, and record signing Lacazette who showed enough to suggest he could be the lethal striker Arsenal have needed for so long. It can happen in pre-season and anyway, I don't think I would have included him on Friday night. "He wasn't right and he hasn't been right ever since".

The England worldwide has struggled to secure a regular first-team place since joining the Gunners six years ago, but Wenger believes the former Southampton winger is finally starting to fulfil his potential. "I think he will not play at Stoke, yes". "Last year Pep had to get to know his team", former Newcastle and Tottenham midfielder Jenas said.

"He still needs to adapt to the intensity of the game but overall in the first half he had some very interesting moments and I believe, after what we saw today, he will become stronger and stronger".
