Arsenal stun Leicester as Premier League begins with 7-goal thriller

Arsenal stun Leicester as Premier League begins with 7-goal thriller

Arsene Wenger was full of praise for his Arsenal players after they were forced to come from behind twice to take a 4-3 win over Leicester in the Premier League curtain raiser for the 2017-18 season.

Olivier Giroud is ready to fight for his place in the Arsenal team after turning down the chance to leave the club this summer.

"Insecurity goes quickly through a team and we had many experienced defenders out tonight - Koscielny, Mustafi, Mertesacker". And in the end he made a decision to stay and it was one of the great days of the recent weeks for me.

"Not only as a player, he is a fantastic player, but as well in the group".

"It's simple, in every game he is stronger since he joined us", Wenger said.

Alexandre Lacazette gave Arsenal an early lead after two minutes before Shinji Okazaki and Jamie Vardy put the Foxes ahead.

Even with the changes that the pros hated, the golf course overall held up to a major standard easily. Needless to say, Kisner will be breaking new ground as he heads to the weekend with the lead.

However, they will be without Alexis Sanchez, who has been ruled out for the first two weeks of the season amid rumours he is agitating for an exit.

"Even when he played on the left, he did very well". "He is an intelligent player who can integrate our game well as we have a game backed on mobility, technique".

While conceding three goals raised questions for the French boss, he believes his side can correct those mistakes moving forward. Following a short corner on the left, Marc Albrighton's deep cross was headed back across goal by Harry Maguire and Okazaki leapt to nod a header past Petr Cech.

Despite a Danny Wellbeck leveller on the stroke of halftime, the Emirates Stadium crowd was growing increasingly anxious and, when Vardy scored his second with 40 minutes to play, they must have feared the worst.

Mahrez saw an effort tipped over by Cech as Leicester looked to regain their advantage - something they did from the resulting corner as Vardy, completely unmarked, headed home the Algerian's set-piece. However, just to remind you we have 33 players here and they are all good players. Buckets of goals, wild defensive irresponsibility, Arsenal frailty and Arsenal fortitude (apparently it's a thing) - we feel confident saying it was the most entertaining match of the season so far. "With a bit of work we can get that out of the system".

Substitute Ramsey smashed in an angled drive - from a corner which was won after Mesut Ozil handled in the build-up - before Giroud showed athleticism and strength to meet Granit Xhaka's corner.
