Chelsea: What to expect from the Premier League champions

Kevin De Bruyne will be the Premier League player of the year – Leon Osman

Sanchez returned late to pre-season training with the Gunners due to his commitments at the Confederations Cup with Chile and will now have his start to the new Premier League campaign delayed. While the Swiss worldwide had some disciplinary difficulties, he grew steadily in stature during his first campaign for the Gunners, and towards the end of the season he was integral to the new system that saw Wenger deploy three at the back for the first time in his Arsenal reign.

"It won't be easy to repeat an wonderful season like a year ago", he said. "We are going to do that, step by step". Leicester will be well aware of this fact and will definitely try to take advantage of this.

Abdominal strain will keep star Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez out of their first English Premier League (EPL) football game against Leicester City on Friday, head coach Arsene Wenger has said.

Players like Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey and Per Mertesacker are also uncertain for the Leicester clash. Also missing is Laurent Koscielny, who is suspended for the first two games.

Jamie Vardy put the visitors ahead just before the half hour, darting into the box to rifle another fine Albrighton cross past Cech after the winger had pounced on a poor square ball from Arsenal midfielder Mezut Ozil.

"I want the team to be on a par with the club's history, which is something I've been lucky enough to feel at every club - there was the same kind of feeling at Inter [Milan] and at Real Madrid". Robert Huth has not yet recovered and will miss the opening game of the season.

Philips Catholic Church, in Ofufe-Amakwa, Ozubulu, Ekwusigo Local Council Area. He said he would remain engaged with Gov.

Manchester City will travel to Brighton at 16:30GMT.

As true as that is, it would've been nice to see Riyad Mahrez in an Arsenal shirt.

As for Leicester, Kelechi Iheanacho has recovered from a toe injury so is in contention to make his competitive debut alongside fellow new signing Harry Maguire.

Arsene Wenger has challenged new signing Alexandre Lacazette to continue the success he showed in front of goal for Lyon in the Premier League at Arsenal.

While the quartet has trained this week, the Arsenal boss has not provided an affirmation over their availability for the match on Friday, meaning Sead Kolasinac could fill in in the back-three, while Alex Iwobi and Danny Welbeck could be starting in attack.
