The Gunners will be without the Chilean when Craig Shakespeare's side travel to the Emirates on Friday night, live on Sky Sports Premier League.

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. Messi and Ronaldo are obviously a cut above but he is definitely on the shortlist in the bracket of world-class players'. "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", the Frenchman added.

Both of these teams lost their first game of the season this time past year, Arsenal going down 3-4 at home to Liverpool whilst Leicester slipped to defeat against newly-promoted Hull City in their first game as reigning champions.

Arsenal could be without several key players with Alexis Sanchez ruled out by injury and Laurent Koscielny suspended.

One might argue if the Foxes ever put the effort in, for it was more about getting playing time than results, but even so, there's always a chance to be caught napping on the first day of the season.

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

It's the newboys versus the heavyweights as Chris Hughton's team go up against the two-time Premier League champions.

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

"All is possible, you know", said the Frenchman.

"But we are ambitious enough to say we will work our socks off, we will try everything and make sure it's as uncomfortable as possible for opponents". "We have seen what he has already achieved at Manchester City", Fuchs remarked.

The Gunners launch the new campaign at home to Leicester City today, and Wenger urged his players to harness the momentum from a promising pre-season that culminated in victory over Chelsea in the Community Shield at Wembley.

But who is the greatest Premier League player of them all?
