Guardiola says current spending in football is unsustainable

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.

According to the British media reports, City have spent over 200 million pounds ($259.62 million) on full-backs Benjamin Mendy, Kyle Walker and Danilo, goalkeeper Ederson and midfielder Bernardo Silva.

With the new Premier League season set to begin this weekend - tonight in fact, for Leicester City as they travel to Arsenal - teams that already had little reason to let go of players have become even less willing to do so.

The Algeria global has stated his wish to leave the 2015/16 Premier League champions, but Wenger insists Arsenal do not need the winger and were never looking to land his signature.

"Yes, because look at what City have done", he said.

West Ham striker Javier Hernandez has responded to comments made about him by Jose Mourinho earlier in the week - claiming that he appreciates the Manchester United manager's praise.

The current champion of England "Chelsea" ambiguous job in the transfer market.

"We're in most competitive league in world at the moment". Rob Holding, given the nod instead of the Frenchman in the Community Shield against Chelsea, is given another start with Sead Kolasinac also slotting in next to Nacho Monreal as part of a back three.

The first match of the season is a critical one for every club, as starting with positive momentum and confidence is of the utmost importance.

We can hardly say we were not warned. "But of course at the moment I have now 33 players and it is very hard to manage on a daily basis such a high number".

Arsenal have not lost in any of their seven Premier League games played on a Friday, winning six of them, while Leicester have not won any of their three Friday night Premier League contests.

"We were never close [to a transfer]", Wenger said of the Algerian.

"To do better than last season is not easy, but I am pleased because we are working very well with the players".

"I think we have a good level of physical preparation".

"We don't want to be a selling club, we want to add to it".

And it is Chelsea fans who take the longest (7,602,098 minutes, 84,468 games) to pay off a typical mortgage as despite sharing the most valuable property tag with Arsenal fans, on average they earn more than £80 a week less than their north London rivals.
