"He had a little abdominal strain that he caught on Sunday morning in training, before he came to Wembley", Wenger said.
Sanchez is unsettled at the Emirates Stadium and has been linked with a move to Paris St Germain and Manchester City, while the Reds have rejected a £90million bid from Barcelona for Coutinho. We think he will not play at Stoke.
Although Wenger admitted that entering the new campaign without Sanchez is a big blow for Arsenal, he pointed out that the striker would not have featured against Leicester even if he had not sustained the injury.
Wenger said the Chile global would miss Arsenal's home fixture against Leicester City on Friday as well as the trip to Stoke City on August 19. You need a combination of talent and attitude and he looks to me as if he has both. "I have had no contact with PSG".
Jose Mourinho insists Manchester United's transfer activity is sufficient
The Portuguese coach concedes his squad is "similar" to the one he took charge of last season . What we had was midfielders, wingers, scoring, central defenders scoring goals at set pieces.
Arsenal legend Ian Wright expects Sanchez to remain at the club for one more season before leaving on a free transfer next summer.
"He obviously thinks that hence why he hasn't signed a new deal".
None more so than the performances of Kolasinac, whose goal capped a hugely impressive afternoon, and record signing Lacazette who showed enough to suggest he could be the lethal striker Arsenal have needed for so long.
"I think he'll run his contract down".
Alvaro Morata scores his first goal for Chelsea in defeat to Burnley
To take over a team 11th in the top flight the year before and comfortably win the title was a fantastic achievement. They've already got off to a good start with a 1-0 win in the Europa League.
The 23-year-old England global has struggled to secure a regular place since arriving at Arsenal six years ago, but Wenger believes the winger has the potential to become a great player.
"I'm personally convinced that will happen soon", he told a Football Writers' Association Live event to raise money for victims of the Grenfell Tower disaster.
"He still needs to adapt to the intensity of the game but overall in the first half he had some very interesting moments and I believe, after what we saw today, he will become stronger and stronger".
