Merson: "Arsenal would let Sanchez go to PSG tomorrow"

Merson:

You surely did not expect Arsenal to make this opening Premier League game against Leicester City an easy watch for us hopeful Gooners did you?

Many new talents could play the match against Leicester as manager Arsene Wenger has hinted several injury doubts as Mesut Ozil (ankle), Per Mertesacker (facial), Aaron Ramsey (muscular), and Jack Wilshere (leg) could all be sidelined.

Iheanacho has signed a record deal at "The Foxes" after a hard last season at Manchester City.

Tiemoue Bakayoko played a crucial role in Monaco's league title win semi-final appearance in the Champions League last season, and will hope to have a similar impact for Chelsea.

This time 12 months ago they were beaten 4-3 at home by Liverpool, who went on to finish the season in fourth place - one point above Arsenal. Bet 365 are giving odds of 8/15 for Arsenal to see past Leicester.

"I appreciate the good words about myself that Mourinho speaks".

"We always had more goals from wingers, midfielders getting 10 goals, central defenders getting five goals and last season that didn't happen much".

Jose Mourinho has already spoken about how much he values Hernandez, and the fact he would never have sold the player, who he called capable of scoring 20 plus goals a season and killing off sides if he needed to.

Arsenal certainly appear to be doing all they can to hold onto their star man, at least for another season, but that will not stop the speculation that's for sure.

Wenger admitted he is open to bringing more players in the current window but stressed the difficulty in managing those at his disposal at the moment. All our players got a decent number of minutes of good competition, so overall the preparation of the squad looks good. But of course at the moment I have 33 players [in the squad] and it's very hard to manage, on a daily basis, such a high number. Not after an extensive summer tour of Australia and China, followed by Sunday's victory over Chelsea in the Community Shield. "Players will put an emphasis on pre-season that they want enough games and minutes on the pitch but whoever we play in the first game is exciting".
