Everything you need to know ahead of the Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium on Friday night

Arsenal open their Premier League season with a match against Leicester City on Friday at Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners go into the game having won the Community Shield at Wembley and will be in a confident mood even if there are a number of injury doubts for the clash.

All the latest transfer rumours

Last season’s fifth-placed finish means Arsene Wenger’s side are without Champions League football for the upcoming campaign and they will be determined to right the wrongs of the previous 18 months by mounting a credible title challenge.

ARSENAL INJURIES

Alexis Sanchez will miss the next two league matches with an abdominal strain while Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey and Per Mertesacker are expected to be fit after training on Thursday.

”Sanchez will not be available,” Wenger told reporters in a press conference on Wednesday.”He had a little abdominal strain that he caught on Sunday morning in training. He had the scan two days ago. He’s out for I don’t know how long.”

Lacazette challenged to emulate Ibra

Francis Coquelin is ruled out for two weeks while long-term absentees Gabriel and Santi Cazorla are still weeks away from returning to first team action.
Wantaway striker Lucas Perez is unlikely to be involved after handing in a formal transfer request as he seeks a departure from north London.
