Undermining Wenger's quest for harmony is the uncertainty surrounding several first-team players.

The Belgian centre-back scored the only goal of the game in a Manchester derby which saw City move level on points at the top of the table with just two games of the season remaining, and his celebration encapsulated just how important a goal it was in what many regard to be the biggest Premier League match ever. However, the Arsenal manager admitted disclosing details of any negotiations could do more harm than good.

That Wenger is not going into the new campaign with the fans still at his throat owes much to Arsenal's strong finish to last season.

On besting Chelsea at the national stadium, as Arsenal did in the FA Cup final two-and-a-half months ago, Wenger added: "It's an encouragement, it's no more than that".

They defeated Chelsea again when the teams renewed acquaintances at Wembley in last Sunday's Community Shield, winning a penalty shootout 4-1 after a 1-1 draw.As well as the silverware, Arsenal's supporters have also had a major signing to celebrate after Wenger broke the club's transfer record to sign prolific French striker Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon. "I think he will not play at Stoke, yes".

Ozil is a doubt against Leicester, however, along with Aaron Ramsey, Per Mertesacker and Shkodran Mustafi, while Laurent Koscielny is suspended.

"It's a long time I didn't speak to Nasser, because it's certainly very busy to complete the transfer of Neymar", Wenger told a press conference at Arsenal's London Colney base.

Theo Walcott has labelled new Arsenal team-mate Sead Kolasinac an "absolute animal" who will be perfectly at home in the Premier League.

As far as the wing-back positions are concerned, the likes of Bellerin and Kolasinac will probably start.

"Every season we tend to start the league not so well but being a Friday night I think a night game might be better for us", he said.

Robert Huth and Danny Drinkwater are missing for the Foxes, while Islam Slimani is still recovering for a nasty gashed leg suffered in July.
