Opening-day woe for Leicester

Football: Arsenal beat Leicester 4-3 in thrilling Premier League opener

Super-sub Olivier Giroud scores at death as Arsenal beat Leicester in thriller

Arsene Wenger's side scored twice in the last 10 minutes as Aaron Ramsey equalised before Olivier Giroud bagged the victor at the Emirates Stadium. I know how important he is not only as a player - he's a fantastic player - but also in the group he has a big weight.

"We were punished on every single mistake by a Leicester team that was very efficient going forward".

The English Premier League got underway in fine style as Arsenal triumped 4-3 over Leicester courtesy of a dramatic late victor at the Emirates Stadium on Friday night.

Arsenal's new signing Alexandre Lacazette took just 94 seconds to make his mark with a header from Mohamed Elneny's curling cross to equal the record for the fastest opening goal in a Premier League season. Arsenal welcomed Leicester City into Emirates Stadium on Friday to get the festivities rolling this season, and it appeared as if everyone would get a chance to use their Arsenal jokes for at least the next week. "Giroud in his prime is at the top of his game".

ARSENAL'S ALEXANDRE LACAZETTE got his Premier League career off to the ideal start against Leicester at the Emirates this evening.

"Maybe not (enough changes) to win the league, which ultimately is what they want to do", Neville said on Sky Sports. Then Jamie Vardy's 29th minute goal put the visitors in front, but Danny Welbeck restored parity for the Gunners in the 45th minute.

Craig Shakespeare's side boasted numerous players, and characteristics, that saw them shock the world to win the title in 2015/16.

Giroud had been linked with an exit during the summer, and Wenger admitted he considered allowing his most authentic target man to leave but the 30-year-old resisted the idea. I opened the door for him because I know it's important for him to play but I don't want him to go.

"For us it was a bit disappointing with the goals that we've let in and we shouldn't really be conceding in that way, but I think we showed great determination and great togetherness to get back into the game and we won it towards the end of the game".
