"I can't tell you that at the moment", he said.

You're never too sure what you're going to get with Arsenal but they looked good against Chelsea in the Community Shield, despite being without Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.

Although Wenger admitted that entering the new campaign without Sanchez is a big blow for Arsenal, he pointed out that the striker would not have featured against Leicester even if he had not sustained the injury.

Has Sanchez played his final game for Arsenal with Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City still reportedly interested in signing him?

Wenger was asked about PSG's interest and said he had not spoken with the club's chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi in "a long time" and he does not expect to hear from him. "I think if you read the French papers, they are on Mbappe's case to finish their transfer market".

When asked if Arsenal have received any bids from PSG for the 28-year-old, Wenger replied: "I can not tell you that".

'Always when I have faced opposition or unhappiness, I try to focus on what I think is important in the game, work harder and question myself, "what can I improve?"

Space station crew to get 3 shots at solar eclipse Aug 21
So your regular sunglasses, or sunglasses that your mother got after her cataract surgery, are not going to protect the eyes. On Aug. 21 hundreds of thousands of people are expected to travel to Christian County to watch a total solar eclipse .


Wenger insists he will not relent on Sanchez's future though, claiming nothing has changed from last season and that he will not be sold. "But all the other players prepared in preseason and are ready", Wenger said.

Arsenal, without Sanchez, will host Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium on Friday night, to kick off the new season.

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez was the only player to reach double figures for both goals (24) and assists (10) in the Premier League last season.

"For example Ramsey, Ozil, Mertesacker - of course Koscielny is suspended".

That is a bold move from the Gunners as it would make the former Barcelona star the highest paid player in the Premier League were he to sign.

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