Wenger explains Sanchez absence

Sanchez and Ozil watched from a sidelines as a Gunners flog Chelsea on penalties to lift a Community Shield during Wembley.

And Wenger certified that a Chilean star, whose destiny during The Emirates has been a theme of most conjecture this summer, faces a competition to be fit for their Premier League opener opposite Leicester on Friday night.

Sanchez usually returned to pre-season training final Tuesday after an extended mangle following a Confederations Cup in Russia.

Quizzed on either Sanchez, Ozil and a others would play on Friday, Wenger said: “Overall, we will see.

“I left them all out since some are brief of credentials like Alexis Sanchez.

“Mesut had a flog on his ankle that was distended and he couldn’t rehearse yesterday. He has a small possibility to play on Friday night.

“[Aaron] Ramsey has a possibility though we consider he could be brief as well.”

Meanwhile, Wenger lauded a grant of new players Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac after considerable showings on their Arsenal debuts.

Lacazette roughly scored his initial Arsenal goal, attack a post in a initial half with a curling shot.

“Lacazette is stronger each week,” Wenger said. “He had an engaging diversion today. we trust currently is a initial time that we have seen physically that he is ready.

“He still needs to adjust to a energy of a diversion though altogether he had really engaging moves and we trust that after what we have seen currently he will turn stronger and stronger.”

Meanwhile Bosnian Kolasinac put in a clever opening after replacing Per Mertesacker, while also scoring a equaliser.

“He came on well. He is routinely a wing-back, full-back though he can as good play as a centre-back,” Wenger said.

“I had a perplexity about personification him since we suspicion maybe Wembley with a pressure, though when he came on he was outstanding.

“He is earthy really strong, naturally. You have players who are pumped adult in a gym and we have players who are innate strong. He is a second part.

“In a Premier League a energy plays a partial though it is not usually that. we took him too since of attitude.

“The diversion does not endure as many weaknesses as it did 20 years ago. You need a multiple of talent and attitude.

“He looks to me like he has a talent though also has a really clever attitude.”
