Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour believes the Gunners can cope without Alexis Sanchez at the start of next month.
The Chilean won the Copa America with his national team this summer and will be back from holidays at the start of August.
But the 42-year-old says boss Arsene Wenger has enough quality in the squad to win games without their star player.
"No [Arsenal won't struggle without Sanchez]," Parlour told The Sport Review.
"I think they've got enough players in that position who can play a role there – Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Theo Walcott, Danny Welbeck…
"I think they're well capable of coping without Sanchez – and they can't just rely on one man.
"During the season, there might be a time when he's out for two months. There have to be players ready to step into his position.
"It won't be a problem at all and Arsene Wenger always gives you a good rest during the summer, makes sure you can recharge your batteries and get ready for the new season."
