  • Manchester City Arsenal PSG Alexis Sanchez

Arsene Wenger has ruled Alexis Sanchez out of Arsenal's Premier League opening game against Leicester City on Friday.

It is a major boost for Arsenal fans, who will be delighted to hear that the Chilean has returned to training and will be hoping that his return means he will remain at the Emirates for the rest of the season.

Following the Gunners' 4-3 victory over Leicester City in their Premier League opener, the Arsenal boss delivered his update on the Chile global after the attacker was seen watching his team from the stands.

"Sanchez will not be available", Wenger told reporters in a press conference.

Wenger said Sanchez would not have started against Leicester even if he wasn't injured.

"He has a little abdominal strain that he caught on Sunday morning in training, before he came to Wembley (for last Sunday's Community Shield)", Wenger said. "I think if you read the French papers, they are on Mbappe's case to finish their transfer market".

'He had a scan two days ago and he's out for a while - I don't know; two weeks or one more week?

Here's the thing, Alexis Sanchez is the original front-man for Arsenal, and the club has no one else good enough on the team to replace him should he fail to perform.

"It is a relief and I believe as well a reminder to the players that they have hurdles on the way and that we can get round it, like tonight so that is quite positive".

Wenger also dismissed Chelsea's reported interest in Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, saying he is still firmly in his first-team plans. "I think he will not play at Stoke, yes", he added.

The Sun say the injury plagued star thinks his time at Arsenal is coming to an end. "He is on the way up and he will continue to move up because that potential is there", Wenger said.

"I can't tell you that at the moment", he said, when asked if offers had been made.
