Tottenham took up temporary residency at Wembley for its European matches last season, but Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping his team's form at the stadium improves.

It is a hard rumour to ignore as a number of outlets are reporting a proposed £80 million bid for Alexis Sanchez from Paris Saint-Gemain.

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

Where the Manchester clubs have spent upwards of 200 million pounds on their teams, Chelsea - who have a small squad as it is - have brought in just Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alvaro Morata, both talented players but unaccustomed to the rigours of the Premier League. Alexis will not be available for example, so I can not go into the game with too many uncertainties.

Alexis Sanchez has also been ruled out with an abdominal injury and Laurent Koscielny is suspended as he's still serving his ban following his dismissal against Everton on the final day of last season. "I think he will not play at Stoke, yes".

Arsenal host Leicester City with kick-off scheduled for 7.45pm on Friday, August 11. "For us Alexis Sanchez is a loss, of course".

We met again in pre-season with Chelsea ending up 3-0 winners again in the searing heat of China, so it is obviously our turn to win this time around! At one stage, I opened the door for him as I knew I had many strikers, and in the end he made a decision to stay.

Sanchez returned to the club late after the summer break and has not featured in any pre-season games after playing at the Confederations Cup with Chile.

Joining United was an easy Decision - Matic
I would because I think it's quite unfair but when you do that you have the risk of more punishment. The 29-year-old made the move to Old Trafford after falling out of favour at the London club.

Wenger would not reveal whether there had been any concrete offers for Sanchez and said his close relationship with Paris Saint-Germain chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi had no baring on the player's future.

"Sometimes you must accept this insane transfer market", Conte told British broadcaster Sky Sports, "and sometimes you must accept different decisions. It's normal that the players and supporters are going to be celebrating for a period of time, but we have had to come down to reality", Brighton boss Hughton said.

Mourinho says he is after another player "coming from the sides" to complete his summer business - leaving the door open for either a winger or a full-back.

Pushed on whether he expected Al-Khelaifi to get in touch, he added: "No, no".

"They are on (Kylian) Mbappe's case, that's what I read in the papers". It is understood that the player had agreed personal terms with Turkish club Fenerbache but Arsenal were not willing to let the Spaniard leave on loan.

The Frenchman replied: "I would like (if) somebody who comes in gets the club to the next level".

The skills of Liverpool's dynamic attack, which includes Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho (although he may be on his way out) and Sadio Mane, should be on full display in this game, and Watford should be able to punch back a little bit to keep the match interesting.
