Wenger revealed the 28-year-old will miss the first couple of weeks of the Premier League season, which includes matches against Leicester City and Stoke City, due to an abdominal problem.

Wenger said the forward had sustained an abdominal injury and was likely to miss both Friday's game against Leicester and the trip to Stoke City on August 19.

With Arsenal failing to qualify for this season's Champions League, Sanchez has been heavily linked with a move away from The Emirates Stadium although Wenger has repeatedly said this offseason that the Chile worldwide is not for sale.

Arsene Wenger confirmed that Sanchez would be "out for a while" having suffered the strain on Sunday morning while training. "I just think we are not open - what I said to you many times - to any offers, anyway".

"Alexis Sanchez is out for a while", Wenger said during a press conference on Wednesday. "He had a scan two days ago and he's out for a while", the Guardian quoted Wenger as saying.

Arsenal haven't lost three consecutive opening day fixtures since 1960.

Life on the streets of the North Korean capital, Pyongyang, also remained calm. She said, "I don't see a military solution and I don't think it's called for".


Arsene Wenger has taken the blame for Arsenal's fifth-placed finish last season, admitting that uncertainty in the dressing room contributed to the team's poor form.

The Mail Online understands that Arsenal are readying a contract offer that would make Alexis Sanchez the highest paid player in the Premier League.

Chelsea have reportedly stepped up their interest in Chamberlain as the Blues are desperate for a new addition.

"Personally, I think he is a hugely talented player".

He has only gone from strength-to-strength playing for the Gunners and was particularly impressive in the last season wherein he established himself as one of the best players in the Premier League.

"Overall I believe that it's down to us".
