Alexandre Lacazette Arsenal

Wenger claimed: "Sanchez will not be available".

Sanchez returned to the club late after the summer break and has not featured in any pre-season games after playing at the Confederations Cup with Chile. The two sides have both figured in the transfer market as well, with Arsenal signing Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac while holding onto Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez (thus far, anyhow), while Leicester has brought in Kelechi Iheanacho from Manchester City and is widely expected to be dealing Riyad Mahrez prior to the August 31 deadline.

Wenger said yesterday that Sanchez sustained an abdominal strain on Sunday - hours before Arsenal's win over Chelsea in the Community Shield at Wembley Stadium - and will be out for "two weeks or one more week". "Pep (Guardiola) has had another year, he's bought wisely and I think offensively they will be very hard to stop". "But all the other players prepared in preseason and are ready", Wenger said. I think we are better than last season. Arsenal have beaten Leicester by a single goal at home in each of the past three seasons but have won just once on the opening day since 2010.

Wenger would not reveal whether there had been any concrete offers for Sanchez and said his close relationship with Paris Saint-Germain chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi had no baring on the player's future. "We are not open to any offers, anyway".

The London's side title chances though are greatly improved with the high certainty of their most important player staying at the club.

There have been a number of changes to the Arsenal squad in the transfer window. They would look at it and ask why the club are selling him to a Premier League rival.

"I want the team to be on a par with the club's history, which is something I've been lucky enough to feel at every club - there was the same kind of feeling at Inter [Milan] and at Real Madrid". The Frenchman's injury crisis could see him be without the services of as many as eight first-team players due to fitness issues.
