Arsene Wenger is confident Arsenals pre-season schedule will sharpen his squad for a tough start in the Premier League. Wenger stands to be without some of his big-name international players when Liverpool visit the Emirates on the opening weekend, live on Sky Sports. Premier League 2016/17 pre-season guide: Who is your team facing? When does the 2016/17 pre-season start for your Premier League team and who will they be facing? That game is followed by a trip to champions Leicester the following Saturday, when the likes of Olivier Giroud, Laurent Koscielny and Mesut Ozil will be just a fortnight into their pre-season training programmes. But Wenger believes the bulk of his squad will be in good shape for the August 14 kick-off thanks to their own professionalism and a run of five friendlies in France, the United States and Scandinavia.Lets not forget that we play Liverpool and Leicester in the first two games so we have to be ready physically and fitness-wise, he told the club website. What has changed compared to 10 or 15 years ago is that the players come back basically fit today. Jack Wilshere has joined the rest of the group following time off after Euro 2016 Theres no overweight players anymore, theres no players anymore who have not prepared or done their homework and you can start straight away with normal training. Before you had to dedicate two or three weeks first to get everybody to the stage where they can practice normally.[We want the players] to be as sharp as possible. Look at the schedule we have, it is a very difficult schedule and we must focus on the players who are here because they are certainly the players who will start the season. Whos travelling the furthest? Premier League clubs are jetting across the world on pre-season tours We have a nice variety. I wanted a game before we travelled to the States, and the States will be interesting as well. After that we travel to Scandinavia.Arsenals first pre-season game is away at Lens on July 22, and their trip to the States takes in friendlies against and MLS All-Stars team and Chivas de Guadalajara.The Gunners then play Norways Viking in Stavanger and Manchester City in Sweden.

On the field, he moved a step closer toward a Week 1 return Wednesday when he took full-speed, full-team snaps against the first-string defence for the first time since his knee surgery. The Washington Redskins are home from training camp, but the new setting doesnt change the teams overriding narrative. The Sept. 9 Monday night regular season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles is less than three weeks away, and the question remains whether the franchise player who says hell be ready to go will indeed be ready to go. "My eyes are set on Philly," he said. To achieve that goal, he must get the OK from his surgeon, Dr. James Andrews, who examined Griffins reconstructed right knee on Monday and will do so again after the final preseason game. Even if Andrews says all is well, the final decision will rest with coach Mike Shanahan. "If the doctor felt like he wasnt ready to play, I surely wouldnt play him," Shanahan said. "But Dr. Andrews could tell me that he is ready, and if I thought something was wrong with Robert through our practice, I wouldnt put him out there." Shanahan limited Griffin to 7-on-7 drills for most of training camp, then last week allowed the quarterback to run some 11-on-11 plays against a scout team defence for the first time. Wednesday was another benchmark. Most of the practice was closed to reporters, but the coach made it sound as if Griffin was working more or less like a regular starting quarterback. "We see progress," Shanahan said. "One of the reasons we didnt throw him right into the fire is we didnt think he was ready right away. If he keeps on progressing like he has been, hell be ready for Monday night." Griffin thinks he should have been progressing even faster, and his comments last week that he disagreed with Shanahans cautious practice plan created such a stir that the quarterback felt the need to make a special statement the following day to say there was "no conflict" between him and coach. Griffins popularity is enhanced by his willingness to speak his mind publicly, but he said the backlash had him considering whether he should clam up. "I sat down and talked to a few people to make a decision: Do I stop being who I am, stop being honest with you guys and give you guys ammunition to turn against this team, or do I just go into a shell and Bill Belichick it all week?" Griffin said. "Im just going to continue to be who I am. And if something like that does happen, you make the statement to make sure everybody gets its cleear.dddddddddddd But I dont think I can change who I am just because people are going to take my words and put them against me." Meanwhile, Griffins backup, Kirk Cousins, did not practice Wednesday after spraining his right foot in the Monday night preseason win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was using crutches and wearing an immobilizing boot after that game, but both were gone when he appeared in the locker room around lunchtime. "Im still walking a little gingerly," he said, "but its getting better every day." Cousins confirmed that an MRI showed "nothing serious, nothing long-term" with his injury. Shanahan said Cousins is a "long shot" to play Saturday against the Buffalo Bills. "The balance between healing and wanting to play is what every athlete has to face," Cousins said. "Right now in the preseason, its probably more important to rest and get healthy so that youre there during the season." Griffin debuted an "Operation Patience" T-shirt when he was working out before Monday nights game. Now Cousins could use one. "Well see if Robert has one for me," Cousins said. In one respect, he timed his injury perfectly. Wednesday marked the first practice at the newly renovated Redskins Park, where the outdated training facilities have been upgraded as part of a $30 million makeover partially funded by taxpayers. "Between the cafeteria and the hot and cold tub and the underwater treadmill -- which I think Im going to put to use here later today -- and the weight room, its spectacular," Cousins said. "When you get injured, you start to appreciate having the improved facilities." Notes: Shanahans relationship with Griffin isnt nearly as contentious as the one he had with defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth a few years ago. When told Wednesday that Haynesworth was opening a restaurant in Knoxville, Tenn., the coach smiled and said: "I hope he has a good crew working for him." ... Even though hes from Michigan State, Cousins was wearing a Nebraska T-shirt when he entered the locker room. He changed to another shirt before talking to reporters. Why? Because Nebraska gear is sponsored by Adidas, and the NFL has a deal with Nike. "I cant be getting fined on a league minimum," Cousins said. ... Shanahan said DT Barry Cofield (broken bone in right hand) would be able to play Saturday if it were a regular season game. WRs Aldrick Robinson (bruised left thigh) and Leonard Hankerson (bruised right knee) practiced. RB Keiland Williams (strained left knee) did not.
