Wenger admitted entering the new campaign without Sanchez is a blow for the Gunners but said he would not have featured against Leicester even if he had not suffered a set-back.

Dortmund rejected a €100m (£90m) offer from Barcelona for Dembele in midweek and he was fined and suspended for missing training until after Saturday's German Cup game for the defending champions against Rielasingen.

The impressive Vardy scored his second in the 53rd minute to put Leicester in front once more, curling Riyad Mahrez's corner into the bottom far corner amid poor Arsenal marking.

Karnataka batsman Manish Pandey and Mumbai's Shardul Thakur were included in the 15-man squad announced after a two-hour long selection meeting. The other four front-line bowlers for India - Ashwin, Jadeja, Shami and Umesh - have been replaced by nearly like-for-like choices.

In his first game in an Oakland Raider uniform, Marshawn Lynch didn't play a down. Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick remains a free agent after notably sitting during the national anthem last season.

Angelo Mathews had no time to react when Rahul edged a cut past him at slip off Sandakan, but he missed out on a century after dancing down the track to strike Pushpakumara to Karunaratne at mid-on.

But Welbeck had the last word of the first half for the home side when he equalised from close range in added time after new signing Sead Kolasinac's tap forward in a goalmouth melee.

Wenger was asked about PSG's interest and said he had not spoken with the club's chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi in "a long time" and he does not expect to hear from him. Personally I think he is a hugely talented player, he's on the way up and he will continue to move up because the potential is there. "We have all the other players prepared in preseason and they are all ready".
Arsene Wenger: "I had an impact on the season, because at some stage the players came to see me and said, "What's going on boss?" But I don't want him to go and in the end he chose to stay and it was one of the days of recent weeks for me because I know how important he is.
According to Matt Law's report in the Telegraph , Chelsea have yet to follow-up on a rejected £15 million bid made "earlier in the window" for Leicester City for midfielder Danny Drinkwater , who's now sidelined with a thigh injury. A move to Stamford Bridge would see Drinkwater link up with N'Golo Kante once again.

In the two seasons since they have finished 14th and 10th. Ahmed Hegazi scored on his Premier League debut as West Brom beat Bournemouth in a tepid encounter at The Hawthorns. "Neither can we underestimate how hard that is".

The second-year mystery man answered some questions in the New York Jets' preseason opener Saturday night at MetLife Stadium, delivering a respectable performance in his first game action in a year. But there were also mistakes. His next pass was batted down at the line of scrimmage and almost intercepted. It means Peake takes every part of his job seriously, and with special teams contributions on his game film, he should be a lock to make the roster.
The Gunners eventually ran out 4-3 winners following an entertaining encounter at the Emirates Stadium. Yes, they looked shaky at times in defense with Lacazette and Welbeck combining well in and around the box, but most teams struggle with that against Arsenal .
Southampton defender Van Dijk has been linked with a move to the Reds throughout the summer and handed in a transfer request at St. Mary's on Monday. What defenders can do that?'
