Arsene Wenger admits he expects Alexis Sanchez will leave Arsenal

Star striker Alexis Sanchez has been ruled out of the start of Arsenal's Premier League campaign due to an abdominal injury.

The 26-year-old France global striker joined Arsene Wenger's side from Ligue 1 outfit Lyon in the summer transfer window for a fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £46.5 million.

"It is hard job to play against a team that dominates the possession - and he tried", Mourinho said of his striker. But if you also get into watching countries play, then you have a whole another set of games to watch all year around. While Alexandre Lacazette has come in to lead the line, he should add the killer instinct Arsenal fans have been calling for. That track record, though, also contains the likes of Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere, so it's in no way guaranteed that Iwobi will become the stellar talent that a lot of us see in him.

"You come away from home, score three goals and are almost there and then concede two.bitterly disappointed", he said.

The reason behind this is that the Premier League side want rid of the defensive midfielder for good rather than run the risk of seeing him return from an unsuccessful loan spell.

Jackson said he was pleased that Kizer made plays with his arm and legs, and that he "stood in the pocket with poise". Those things can help a young quarterback and Jackson said he would have no reluctance to play a rookie.

"They have got everything in place", the 54-year-old said.

Arsene Wenger says there could be female managers in the Premier League in the next 10 to 15 years. I'm sure Chris will know the key for any newly-promoted team is how you do at home. "But we have all the other players prepared in pre-season and they are all ready".

Craig Shakespeare hopes Leicester can end their Arsenal hoodoo on Friday night. "He has an abdominal strain and could be out for one or two weeks", Wenger said.

"We just develop that and we played in a couple of matches, Sampdoria and I think the LA Galaxy, because it is something during the season we are maybe going to do".

"Every manager's nightmare is to lose players in the last 24 hours or on the day of the window (closing) and you can't get replacements in", Shakespeare told reporters of the August 31 transfer deadline day.
