No PSG contact over Sanchez - Wenger

No PSG contact over Sanchez - Wenger

It may have taken Wenger five years to sign a genuine replacement for Robin van Persie, but in Lacazette they have acquired one of the outstanding forwards in Europe entering his prime years, proof that even without Champions League football Arsenal still represent a attractive destination.

For the first time in its 25-year history, the Premier League season will kick off on a Friday night.

Here's where you can find part one andpart two. The second half of the season, under Craig Shakespeare, was a much better showing. But, what about the mood in the dressing room, and the general well-being of the squad?

"Olivier Giroud plays ahead of him for the national team and he's going to be on the bench for them". But I don't want him to go and in the end he made a decision to stay and it was one of the days of recent weeks for me because I know how important he is.

Although one could say that there was next to learning curve for Conte then as he marched to the Premier League title with no hiccups along the way.

Liverpool had a poor patch mid-season but it seemed as though Jurgen Klopp's influence was finally taking hold at Anfield for the club as they finished fourth.

Arsenal looked headed for another dismal Opening Day when they went behind in the first half. Liverpool will de deadly in attack.

Arsenal may have endured their toughest campaign for over two decades last season yet expectations have never been higher. Also, they can be prone to lapses in concentration which can lead to losing close games.

Shikhar Dhawan guides India to 329/6 on Day 1
Lakshan Sandakan replaced Rangana Herath, while Lahiru Kumara and Vishwa Fernando replaced Dhananjaya de Silva and Nuwan Pradeep. Is it the fear of losing? Dhawan was particularly dominant, consistently maintaining a strike rate of more than a run per ball.

While for Leicester, it will interesting to see their midfield with both Danny Drinkwater and Vicente Iborra being unavailable. 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.

"I know that it's important for him to play". He's certainly got the skill and talent needed to make that leap, he just needs to score more.

Arsenal's biggest problem for years has been their lack of a true world-class number nine. His leadership alone is massive for the club.

Frustrated by City's failings in his trophyless first season in England, Guardiola has overhauled his squad with defenders Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy and Danilo, plus goalkeeper Ederson and playmaker Bernardo Silva. He will be first choice and hopefully he will be able to keep City from conceding cheap goals this season. Arsenal has been plagued so badly by injuries the past several years, but if everything breaks right and avoiding a grueling European campaign pays off, Arsenal have a shot. Unfortunately this is doesn't look to be the case. He has won the league title in each of his second seasons at Chelsea, Inter Milan - where he added a Champions League in his second year as well - and famously at Real Madrid in 2011-12 when he ended Barcelona's stranglehold over the La Liga trophy after four barren years for Los Blancos.
