Transfer seeking Mahrez to start and HURT Arsenal?

Transfer seeking Mahrez to start and HURT Arsenal?

Arsenal did well when Mertesacker was forced off, with Monreal dropping to the centre and Sead Kolasinac taking up the left centre-back role, but the German's calming influence could be vital in the opening match of the English Premier League season.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger at Wembley Stadium, London, August 6. Do the Arsenal players need to be aware of this threat and make sure that they keep him under control tomorrow?

Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jack Wilshere are among the players whose contracts expire at the end of the season.

Undermining Wenger's quest for harmony is the uncertainty surrounding several first-team players.

Lacazette is expected to make his competitive home debut against the 2016 Premier League champions following his club-record move to Arsenal last month.

It might take a little bit of time before he can lead the line for Arsenal but playing just off he can be just as effective. Gabriel and Santi Cazorla are definitely out.

"You know when you have good players that there might be interest in them from other clubs but I wouldn't sleep at night if all the scenarios that you [the media] put to me happened".

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.

Alexis Sanchez meanwhile has been ruled out with an abdominal strain. The Gunners got the better of their visitors in this fixture last season with a 1-0 victory coming courtesy of a late Robert Huth own goal. But after an intensive buildup to this season "let's go into the Premiership with the same discipline, the same spirit, and see where we can go".

Star playmaker Riyad Mahrez is desperate for a move away from the club, but manager Craig Shakespeare is prepared to select the reported Roma target.

"Kelechi Iheanacho has come to Leicester for a lot of money and, having predominantly come off the bench at Manchester City, it will be interesting to see if he can have an impact from the start for the Foxes".

"Whether we manage to get him to sign an extension or not... we have so far not been able to". But if you look at the number of players on loan, they can call a few back.

According to SDF fighters, even liberated areas of the city are hard to get into because the streets are rigged with landmines. Rebels told Reuters that the latest gain was facilitated by "a sudden pull-back by Jordan-backed Jaish al-Ashair rebel group".
