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

And his latest strike has helped the Gunners start the season on a positive note when it looked like disaster was looming for Wenger and his charges.

"I'm totally convinced that this season will be even better for him, and that playing in the Champions League against the best teams and players will take some pressure off him, because in the Europa League, he was obviously one of the two or three biggest stars".

They open their first ever Premier League campaign by hosting Manchester City on Saturday.

Chelsea have signed four players so far, including striker Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid. "I don't think I would have started him".

Doctors Without Borders has refused to endorse the rules, while some other humanitarian groups have given their approval. Libyan coastguard boats have repeatedly clashed with NGO vessels on the edge of Libyan waters, sometimes opening fire.

Wenger remains determined to keep Sanchez at Arsenal, after he scored 30 goals in all competitions last term and says the club will not be tempted into a late-window sale.

"I think what will be crucial will be their home form".

"Sanchez will definitely not be available for Leicester", said the Arsenal boss.

Arsenal have reportedly offered Alexis Sanchez a new contract worth £300,000 a week in a last-ditch attempt to secure his long-term future with the club.

Leicester have also retained many familiar names (at least for now) from their title winning season two years ago, including Riyad Mahrez, Danny Drinkwater, Wes Morgan, and Jamie Vardy.

On Saturday afternoon, a Virginia State Police helicopter assisting in monitoring the protests crashed in Albermarle County. Police took a man into custody as the subject of a homicide investigation, Charlottesville Police Chief Al Thomas said.

Despite having only played 45 minutes for the club in last week's friendly against Sampdoria, the £35million signing impressed throughout the whole match in sweltering Macedonia.

"I will focus more on the players who had the right number of competitive minutes in recent weeks".

Arsenal need all three points and we have the players to get them, so Come On You Gunners, get firing!

Pushed on whether he expected Al-Khelaifi to get in touch, he added: "No, no".

"We haven't been able to beat them yet but there's always a first time and it would be nice to think it would be Friday night". After seeming to solve some of their defensive frailties that plagued them at times previous year City will look for a convincing win here and get an early lead on their rivals.

"Yesterday I had the managers' meeting and was talking with the other managers in the other clubs".
