Alexis Sanchez Out of Arsenal's EPL Opener Due to Abdominal Strain

Alexis Sanchez

Arsenal are facing a mounting selection crisis ahead of Friday's Premier League opener against Leicester City with Arsene Wenger set to be without TEN first team players.

Wenger, who has repeatedly insisted the Chile worldwide will stay in north London, was eager to stress that Sanchez's absence from training was due to an abdominal strain he picked up before the game against Chelsea in the Community Shield.

However, the Frenchman insists Sanchez remains "focused" on playing for the Gunners this season amid continued speculation about his future.

Arsenal were ill prepared for the start of the campaign, with Granit Xhaka the only major signing yet to be completed and several key players coming back late from Euro 2016.

Byron Buxton hit a laser shot that just barely cleared the wall in right field - his sixth home run of the year. Miguel Cabrera came out of the game after he singled in the fifth inning, complaining of lower back stiffness.

"He had a little abdominal strain that he caught on Sunday morning in training, before he came to Wembley", Wenger said.

'Arsenal would let Sanchez go to PSG tomorrow, ' Merson told Sky Sports.

The newspaper revealed on their website that the north London club have been eager to renew both Ozil and team mate Alexis Sanchez' contracts and are close to finalising one of those.

When asked if the club had any others for the Chilean, Wenger replied "I can not tell you that".

"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".

"I have plenty of uncertainties about the players who didn't play against Chelsea", he said.

Some sections of the Arsenal support may feel more signings are needed entering the final phases of this summer's transfer window, but Mahrez seemingly won't be one of those arriving at the Emirates Stadium. 'I have sympathy for 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.
