Chelsea's record signing Alvaro Morata is unlikely to start the champions' Premier League opener against Burnley on Saturday because he has not adjusted to their style, Blues manager Antonio Conte said on Friday.
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.
Alexis Sanchez Out of Arsenal's EPL Opener Due to Abdominal Strain
The current contract Sanchez with Arsenal expires in the summer of 2018. He had a scan two days ago and he's out for a while.
The 26-year-old France global boasted a goal every 86 minutes in Ligue 1 for Lyon last season and, after forking out £45million, Wenger believes Lacazette can be just as deadly on this side of the Channel.
"It is hard job to play against a team that dominates the possession - and he tried", Mourinho said of his striker.
"I think these are good signings for us", Conte told Sky Sports on Wednesday.

Tensions between the USA and North Korea ratcheted up on Friday , as President Donald Trump doubled down on military threats. At the same time, Beijing will respond if the US and South Korea strike first and try to overthrow the North Korean regime.
"Let's go into the Premier League with the same discipline, the same spirit and see where we can go". While Alexandre Lacazette has come in to lead the line, he should add the killer instinct Arsenal fans have been calling for. He scored 129 times in 275 games for Lyon so has a big reputation. But by the time those role around, he will have had months with his new club (hopefully not years) and these new "debuts" per say aren't anything to worry about.
In an interview withSFR Sport Wenger said that while his "firm intention" is that Sanchez remains, he was "not super optimistic" that he will sign a new contract. I'm sure Chris will know the key for any newly-promoted team is how you do at home. "So that's the target Lacazette should set".

Chelsea will open their league campaign with a home game at Stamford Bridge against Burnley on Saturday. United could hand Premier League debuts to all three of their new additions against West Ham on Sunday.
"I think every club is living in that reality, so we have to deal with it". For those of you who are not into the English Premier League or soccer, I recommend you start watching the EPL.
