Premier League previews for the opening weekend

Soccer-Arsenal's Sanchez out of opener due to abdominal strain

The 2017/18 Premier League season kicks off on Friday evening as Arsenal welcome Leicester City to the Emirates Stadium.

"He had a scan two days ago and he's out for a while".

"It's been a long pre-season and it's always tough", Leicester captain Wes Morgan said. They are top-level players, they want to go to the World Cup but he will get a number of games here and he will fight with Petr Cech.

The Premier League returns this weekend and we have some mouthwatering previews to get you in the mood for the new season.

Key Player: Alexandre Lacazette - There is pressure on Arsenal's marquee signing to score the goals to push them towards the title.

Despite speculation on his future at the end of last season, Arsene Wenger is set to take charge of his 22nd Gunners campaign.

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

The Blues made a poor start to the 2015-16 campaign and never recovered, finishing a distant 10th as manager Jose Mourinho was sacked mid-season.

Arsenal have often finished Premier League seasons strongly and will have high hopes of doing so again with all but one of their matches against other top six sides coming before March.

"It won't be easy", the Italian said.

Supporters were angry that Arsenal didn't qualify for the Champions League for this season, but it could be a blessing in disguise.

What a test it will be for the Brighton-born defender on his Premier League bow.

Huddersfield travel to Crystal Palace having last appeared in the top-flight first division back in 1972. "But you know very well that there are surprises".

"I just want to make sure that the guy that comes in after me is in a condition that he could work well".

"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".

Goalkeeper: Petr Cech has carried over his fine form from past year in to pre-season as he's produced some fine displays recently so I see no reason to think Wenger won't stick with him as his number one in the Premier League.
