Arsenal Edge Leicester In Seven-Goal Thriller

Arsenal Edge Leicester In Seven-Goal Thriller”

Speaking after the game, Wenger said: "Going forward and character wise we have been great".

Olivier Giroud has confirmed that he will stay at Arsenal after netting a dramatic victor in their opening day Premier League victory over Leicester City.

But Wenger says he wants him to remain in north London. While Lacazette has started with an impressive performance in the Community Shield match, Kolasinac went a step further to score the all-important equaliser leading to the Arsenal win in the Community Shield.

The night started perfectly for Arsenal as new signing Alexandre Lacazette marked his league debut with a goal after just 94 seconds, only for Shinji Okazaki to cancel it out three minutes later.

The ideal way to start a new Premier League season is with a 7-goal thriller, and that's exactly what Arsenal and Leicester City provided, including lead changes, supersubs and late drama.

Completing the starting lineup for Arsene Wenger's men are Hector Bellerin and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain at the wing-back positions, as well as Mohamed Elneny and Granit Xhaka in the central midfield.

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez will miss their first two Premier League games of the season after picking up an abdominal strain in training, manager Arsene Wenger said on Wednesday.

They also have the best defence in the league, letting in only 26 goals last season and with one of the youngest teams in the league, we can only expect them to get better.

The visitors took the lead again 10 minutes into the second stanza as Vardy grabbed his brace with a cute header from close range. What else are we to look out for in the 2017/18 Premier League season?

The game will mark the first time the English top-flight season begins on a Friday in its 129-year history. Head-to-Head in the last two seasons, Arsenal seem to have the upper hand on Leicester City today as they have won three out of the four matches. The Gunners' defending was suspect, but Vardy did well to get in front of them and to put his chance away, restoring the Foxes' lead.

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