Lacazette quick off the mark to extend opening day record

Lacazette quick off the mark to extend opening day record”

Jamie Vardy has scored Leicester City's last three goals against Arsenal in the Premier League.

Arsenal can finally head into a season with the kind of striker their supporters have been craving for years.

Wenger has now distanced Arsenal from a potential move stating that the club already has a number of players similar to the Algeria global.

The Premier League is borrowing an idea long practiced in America, as they'll kick off their season with a single night game before the rest of the league kicks off.

"After that you have Lyon which is a special place in France as they have their own mentality". It seemed that half the fans wanted to move on from Arsene Wenger, while the other were wary of what the unknown could bring.

Yes, yes, I love you too - but not now.

Meanwhile, Wenger believes Manchester City have had the best summer thus far owing to Pep Guardiola's £200m+ outlay to sign six players.

According to Wenger, that makes this Premier League one of the hardest ever to win.

"Yes, because look at what City have done", he said.

"Chelsea have bought Morata and have not lost Diego Costa yet".

Ozil was originally a doubt for the visit of the Foxes but the Germany worldwide returned to training on Thursday and should be given the all-clear to start.

For several years, Arsenal fans have yearned for Arsene Wenger to sign a proven, quality striker to lead the lines, but to no avail.

"We're gonna win the league!" sang the Leicester fans and they nearly had a third goal to cheer when Okazaki's header from Christian Fuchs's cross bounced just wide of Cech's left-hand post.

"We were never close [to signing Mahrez]", he said.

"I rate him as a player but we have similar types with Alex Iwobi, Jack Wilshere back".

Therefore, The Hard Tackle predicts a first season opening win for Arsenal since 2014, with two of the three aforementioned players likely to grab the goals for them. Not only was Wenger's position under fire a year ago, but the club was dealing with contract disputes from their two stars, Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, both of whom's contracts were set to expire after this season.
