Wenger has therefore suggested that the Premier League's opening weekend is moved to accommodate those who face European clashes, and says the current system is 'unfair'.
Wenger told The Sun: "Playing a European qualifier in the first week is a big problem when there are other Premier League matches. We will be chasing to get the points back.
"After three games, you can be mid-table if you don't win the first game. That gives you a big disadvantage and it is unfair.
"Why could we not start the league one week earlier? It is not ideal. So it is very important not to get off to a slow start."
