Well that's one way to introduce yourself to your new club. Undermining Wenger's quest for harmony is the uncertainty surrounding several first-team players.

Olivier Giroud completed an exhilarating comeback as Arsenal beat Leicester 4-3 on Friday to ensure Arsene Wenger's side opened the English Premier League with a victory for only the second time in eight seasons.

Arsenal would sell Alexis Sanchez to Paris Saint-Germain "tomorrow" but will be reluctant to lose the Chilean superstar to Manchester City, according to Paul Merson.

'If he went to City there would be uproar from the Arsenal fans.

Arsenal's record signing Alexandre Lacazette scored less than two minutes into his Premier League debut and with his first shot.

"We're gonna win the league!" sang the Leicester fans and they nearly had a third goal to cheer when Okazaki's header from Christian Fuchs's cross bounced just wide of Cech's left-hand post.

Other doubts for the game are Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey, Per Mertesacker, who did all train yesterday, and Shkodran Mustafi along with Laurent Koscielny who is still suspended after his sending off against Everton last May.

Speaking at an FWA Live event to raise money for the London Fire Relief Fund set up in the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower disaster, Wenger was asked about the prospect of a woman taking the reins at either Arsenal or a fellow Premier League team and suggested it's a possibility for the not-too-distant future.

Out: Santi Cazorla (ankle), Laurent Koscielny (suspended), Alexis Sanchez (abdominal), Gabriel (knee).

The goalkeeper has been heavily linked with a move to Turkey.

But 20-year-old Nigeria starlet Iheanacho, signed from Manchester City last week, has been passed fit after sustaining a knock in a friendly against Borussia Moenchengladbach.

"At some stage, I had to tell them, 'Look guys, I'm with you, but we have to win games'".
