EPL: Arsene Wenger braced for knife-edge Arsenal season

EPL: Arsene Wenger braced for knife-edge Arsenal season

Fans will get their first glimpse of how one of the contenders will fare when Arsenal, fresh from their Community Shield victory over Chelsea, face Leicester in the season opener at the Emirates Stadium.

"They are not anxious about the money because they aren't the ones getting it". "The biggest worry is Manchester City and that's the problem". As a game is in 90 that would guarantee you a goal. I think Manchester City will score six or seven goals in five games this season.

But despite the scale of the task facing Conte and his players after a frustrating transfer window, Lampard remains confident they can retain their title. We don't want to sell our best players. But he could choose to leave the club as a free agent in just 10-and-a-half months' time, with his current contract set to expire at the end of the 2017/18 season. "They've made good additions to the quality they already have there".

"Goalscoring record is not necessarily transferable from the French League to the English league, that's for sure", said Wenger.

"On that level I am not superbly optimistic".

Star playmaker Riyad Mahrez is desperate for a move away from the club, but manager Craig Shakespeare is prepared to select the reported Roma target. "I rate him [Mahrez] as a player but we have similar types with Alex Iwobi, Jack Wilshere back, Mesut Ozil - we have plenty of the same type of players", Wenger said, as quoted by Goal.

This will be Guardiola's second season in charge of City, and you get the distinct impression he will have learned a lot from his first season - and that experience will help him become more tactically astute this time around. But what makes the injury more hard is that Danny Drinkwater too is absent due to injury. Walker came from Tottenham Hotspur, Mendy was signed from AS Monaco, and Danilo left Real Madrid to join Pep's team.

Ozil still played a vital role as the playmaker in Arsene Wenger's side in 2016-17, though, registering eight goals and nine assists in the English top flight.

He has said he intends "to focus completely on the Premier League", but if such an approach fails to yield a title challenge, he can expect the protests to ramp up quickly.
