Arsenal rally late to defeat Leicester on opening night

"I rate him as a player but we have similar types with Alex Iwobi, Jack Wilshere back, Mesut Ozil - we have plenty of the same type of players".

"Our players got a decent number of minutes of competition, the preparation of the squad looks good, then it's to transform the quality of the preparation into points".

Jose Mourinho has told his players they must all take responsibility for solving Manchester United's goalscoring problem, while adding that a Premier League title was a more realistic target this season.

Last season was by far the most hard of Wenger's 21-year tenure as manager, with Arsenal's on-pitch travails exposing him to furious protests from sections of the club's support.

In the build-up to Friday's game Wenger repeatedly stressed the importance of beginning with a positive result against Leicester - and the Gunners appeared to have listened to their manager as they made the dream start.

Sanchez heads into the 2017-18 Premier League campaign with just one year remaining on his contract, meaning he will be free to talk with other clubs in January.

"In France, he scored a goal every 80 minutes".

Aurier set to sign five-year Man Utd deal
But the French giant brought former Barcelona defender Dani Alves to Paris this summer from Juventus, leaving Aurier down in the pecking order.

Ibrahimovic's one-year deal at Old Trafford expired in June and was not extended following the injury.

"I have players coming back who have not played, like [Shkodran] Mustafi".

"I understand the reality of the market, the numbers and my club by doing 75 per cent of what I asked, the club did well".

Brighton and Hove Albion - Although in my bottom three, I see this as a great opportunity for Socceroos goalkeeper Mat Ryan as he's going to be very busy.

This season, however, each of the Premier League's top seven will play in Europe, which Mourinho believes is a leveller. I feel the same pressure at Barcelona when I arrived.

"Whether he does or not, I expect Arsenal to win, but only just". Antonio Conte's side will be without their star player, Eden Hazard, as he continues to recover from an ankle injury sustained during Belgium training at the beginning of summer.

Arsenal are reportedly "on the verge" of tying Mesut Ozil to a new contract, with the Germany global indicating he is prepared to accept the £225,000-per-week deal on the table from the Gunners.
