Quotes

Raheem Sterling: "The first game at home against Sunderland is a massive one to kickstart our new season, hopefully we get a few wins and make our spirit be right out there."

Arsene Wenger: "“Not all of [the international players will be back]. But Ramsey will be involved, Sanchez will be involved. The latest players coming back will not be involved, that's Ozil, Giroud and Koscielny, they are the last ones and I don't think they will be involved on the tour on Thursday, but all the others will.”
