Arsenal fans don't believe the latest news about Alexis Sanchez

"For us, Alexis Sanchez is a loss of course but we had all the other players prepared in pre-season already and it can happen in preparation any way".

Wenger also said there are "plenty of uncertainties" around players like Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey and Per Mertesacker for the Leicester clash - Ozil and Ramsey missed the Community Shield victory, while Mertesacker was taken off injured after sustaining a head injury.

Alexis Sanchez has suddenly got Arsenal fans very nervous after accidentally revealing that he is now in Paris, confirming reports that he flew to the French capital.

Arsene Wenger confirmed that Sanchez would be "out for a while" having suffered the strain on Sunday morning while training.

The Gunners have seen the Chilean enter the final year of his current contract, sparking interest from Premier League rivals Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.

He claimed it was possible that Sanchez could still sign an extension beyond next summer.

"I can't tell you that at the moment", said the Frenchman, whose side open their Premier League campaign at home to Leicester City on Friday.

"We need to transform the quality of the preparation into points and that is, of course, a pragmatic view, but what matters is we win the game and start in a strong way, which we didn't do previous year". Gabriel and Santi Cazorla are definitely out.

He has said he intends "to focus completely on the Premier League", but if such an approach fails to yield a title challenge, he can expect the protests to ramp up quickly.

"He's going to be good enough this season to get a contract elsewhere".

They have spent over £50 million, strengthening each squad department with moves for goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic, centre-back Harry Maguire, midfielder Vicente Iborra and striker Kelechi Iheanacho.

"At some stage, I had to tell them, "Look guys, I am with you, but we have to win games".
