  • Wenger suggests Man United do not deserve Champions League football

"Arsenal are a potential rival this season".

In comments to SFR Sport this week, Wenger admitted he was feeling "not super optimistic" about the Chilean superstar, scorer of 30 goals last season, signing a new deal.

Rather than being a platform to build on to challenge for a first title since 1961, Tottenham's ownership appears more focused on building its new stadium.

Paris Saint-Germain are still in the race to sign Alexis Sanchez this summer and, despite knowing his first preference is Manchester City, feel they can test that position as well as the resolve of Arsenal by putting forward the type of financial package that proves too good to turn down. It seemed that half the fans wanted to move on from Arsene Wenger, while the other were wary of what the unknown could bring. But for sure we want to try to fight, to fight until the end, to try to retain the title.

But do those fans have a right to worry?

Immediately after Brighton secured promotion to the top-flight for the first time in 34 years, their chairman Tony Bloom warned he would not break the bank in a bid to avoid relegation.

The Gunners have a habit of stumbling out of the blocks in the Premier League, having won just one of their past seven season openers. The forward is a top-level professional, and Wenger knows such players would perform at an optimum level, especially before a World Cup year and he certainly expects a starring performance from his star player.

The Arsenal manager's unresolved future last season had a awful impact on his side's end to the Premier League campaign. When you walk into the theater to see a F&F movie, you know exactly what you're going to get: Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, fast cars, women in bikinis, the same team of characters (give or take one or two changes), and extremely unrealistic auto chase scenes.

Arsenal failed to do what they have been known for in the past decade, as they missed qualification into the Champions League. They hit a resurgence in the new year, face another cold spell around March, followed by a really strong finish.

"However, it's the Man City situation that's the concern and we've seen it all before with Robin van Persie's move to Manchester United".

In the recent past, Wenger, knowing the pressure that he is under, has chose to go for experience over young talent in the transfer market, but what made the Arsenal manager great was his ability to take uncut stones and turn them into the most precious gems in the world. Also starting for Arsenal, will be Sead Kolasinac, who arrived from Schalke on a free transfer in the summer.

Arsenal fans will be eager for record signing Alexandre Lacazette to get off to a good start up front.

Ahead of the Premier League opener against West Ham at Old Trafford on Sunday, he said: "My initial analysis from January and progressing through other months I was thinking of four players but I am not a hard person to work with, even if looks different or you want to make it look so".
