Arsene Wenger talks up Reiss Nelson as Arsenal's latest forward addition

"I haven't decided who will be in the squad", said Wenger.

Bournemouth at home is a game you would nearly hand pick at the minute, with Arsenal fans ready to revolt and desperate for any sort of positive from the club. Their newly signed but ageing striker Jermain Defoe is yet to find the back of the net, as is their top-scorer from last season - Josh King.

If Bournemouth's defence is weak, Arsenal's defence is nearly non-existent.

The global break is over, along with Arsene Wenger's reprieve from the reality that he finds himself in at Arsenal. That rhetoric intensified towards the conclusion of last season, as Arsenal missed out on Champions League football for the first time in 19 years. Still, they did very well in the previous round against Manchester City, a game which they lost in the stoppage time.

In the last week, La Liga president Javier Tebas has raised further question about the huge amounts of money being spent in the transfer window, accusing PSG and Manchester City of financial doping.

On the transfer issue involving Sanchez and Thomas Lemar, Wenger said: "I have no doubt about his mentality".

They have conceded an average of 1.43 goals per league game in 2017, their highest rate in a calendar year since 1965.

'But it's not for him - and it's going to end in tears'.

Xhaka then failed to keep his 20-yard effort down after Lacazette's fine hold-up play as Arsenal continued to pile the pressure on the floundering visitors.

"Nobody was ideal. We have to take some distance with that as well and focus on our performances and not get caught in any animosity". This side got promoted from the Championship, but even their fans aren't overly optimistic about their chances of staying in the Premier League for another term. That's why you have to scrap it before the season starts.

Sanchez drew one more save from Begovic before Bournemouth were finally put out of their misery, with the defeat seeing them become just the ninth team to lose their opening four fixtures of a new Premier League season. The transfer market is over and for us it's important - there was a lot going on on that front - so overall it's very hard for me to speak about that.
