"A lot (of the trouble) was created by my own situation". The French coach is keen to strengthen the squad and confirmed that they are open to further additions, but it is likely to happen only after they trim the senior squad, which already consists of 33 players. "The trend has always to come from the team".

Wenger admitted that he scouted the striker "for a long time" but said it's often hard to convince players from the Lyon region to leave France.

Lacazette will offer more dynamism, better interplay, and his direct running will undoubtedly create more space between the lines for the likes of Sanchez and Mesut Ozil to hurt opposition defences.

Arsenal would be willing to let Alexis Sanchez leave the club but would rather he joined Paris Saint-Germain than Manchester City, says Paul Merson.

The manager: Craig Shakespeare has been rewarded for last season's successful relegation swerve with a three-year contract, but many fans are yet to be convinced that he is the long-term answer.

Though Arsenal began the second half on the front foot, Leicester created the cleaner chances, Cech rushing out of his box to tackle Vardy and then tipping over a shot by Riyad Mahrez, and after 11 minutes they went in front again.

Arsenal also pursued Lacazette past year before finally reaching a deal with Lyon this summer that could be worth up to £52 million.

Wenger admits he was surprised to lure the 26-year-old from Lyon to London.

But with Alexis Sanchez injured, Laurent Koscielny suspended and doubts surrounding Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey and Per Mertesacker, there is every reason for Arsenal fans to feel a bit anxious. Gabriel and Santi Cazorla are definitely out.

The Algeria worldwide has stated his wish to leave the 2015/16 Premier League champions, but Wenger insists Arsenal do not need the winger and were never looking to land his signature.

Remember that boring 2016-17 Premier League season that Chelsea won easily?

"He's going to be good enough this season to get a contract elsewhere".

However, Kelechi Iheanacho has recovered from the toe injury amd will make his make his debut along with Harry Maguire. The Gunners, though, would be high on confidence after kicking off their 2017/18 campaign with the Community Shield win over Chelsea last week.

"You've got the season ahead to look forward to and everyone's raring to go", said captain Wes Morgan.
