Alexis Sanchez will miss the start of the Premier League season with an abdominal injury.

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.

The former Barcelona forward sat out Arsenal's season-opening 4-3 win over Leicester City on Friday due to an abdominal strain.

Sanchez has been linked with a move away from the Emirates

With Arsenal failing to qualify for this season's UEFA Champions League, Sanchez, who was Arsenal's top scorer in the league with 24 goals last season, has been heavily linked with a move away from The Emirates although Wenger has repeatedly said this offseason that the Chile global is not for sale.

"He practised well, had a good session for the first time because he had a little muscular strain. I think if you read the French papers, they are on Mbappe's case to finish their transfer market".

Manchester United, Manchester City, and Chelsea have spent millions of pounds in just a few weeks to boost their squad.

Naturally, Pellegrino isn't fully satisfied with the performance, as he relayed to the Southampton media team . Pellegrino's comments came after his Southampton tenure kicked off with a stalemate against Swansea.

For us Alexis Sanchez is a loss, of course.

Arsenal have signed two players so far this summer as they prepare to try and challenge for the Premier League title this season.

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".

Louis Feral Cat Outreach posted a photo of a kitten that was trapped at the City Garden overnight. Louis says that they are sure it's the same cat because of the markings on his back and legs .

"He is today very conscious of his qualities as well, which he was not always, and I personally believe he will be a very great player".

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

Some may disagree with that sentiment and feel Arsenal could do with the addition of the 2015-16 PFA Players' Player of the Year, who has stood out as one of the Foxes' elite stars in recent years.
