Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger hopes new signing Alexandre Lacazette can replicate the kind of form Zlatan Ibrahimovic had at Manchester United last season. "If the remaining 25 per cent don't arrive I will not moan, I will just go with everything I have to try to win every match I play".

Although Wenger insisted several times that Sanchez would not be sold, he confirmed that the forward would miss Friday's Premier League clash at home to Leicester besides a trip to Stoke the following weekend.

The Swedish striker who was signed from Paris Saint Germain (PSG) scored 28 English Premier League goals for the Red Devils but was released after he copped an injury towards the end of last term.

Huddersfield Town - Aaron Mooy has been one of its big signings and he was terrific last season, but it's going to be a tough one in the Premier League for it.

"Whether he does or not, I expect Arsenal to win, but only just". Over the past five seasons they've only won once on the opening day (a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace) but that could change tomorrow.

'Even when I played Giroud through the middle and him on the left he did very well.

His pace and power will be a hard proposition for any defender in the Premier League but he would need to work on his build-up play and first-touch, which was a matter of concern for the big Belgian in previous seasons.

We had to claw it from the brink of disaster though, as with les than 10 minutes on the clock we needed two goals to get the three points, and we got them thanks to the subs. I think we've got owners who want to keep their best players. "I'm happy with the effort the club did and I'm happy they managed to do 75 percent of the work before the Premier League starts".
