Arsenal vs Leicester City, Premier League

Manager Arsène Wenger replaced Rob Holding and for the veterans Aaron Ramsey and Oliver Giroud.

Alexandre Lacazette's arrival has bumped Giroud even further down the Arsenal pecking order, but having given the 30-year-old the chance to leave, Wenger was thrilled he chose to stay. This is the time Leicester puts an end to their winless campaign against Arsenal.

It took all of 160 seconds for Leicester to get themselves back on level terms, with debutant Harry Maguire heading a deep Marc Albrighton cross back into the path of Shinji Okazaki, who was in the right place to turn the ball past Petr Cech.

A insane game sees Arsenal winning 4-3 over Leicester City.

An admiring Wenger said Giroud was "in his prime" and "at the top of his game".

"I love the man and the player because he's a fantastic guy. committed (and) he loves the club", Wenger said.

"At one stage I opened the door for him as I knew I had many strikers, and in the end he chose to stay", Wenger told BBC.

Balochistan Home Minister Sarfaraz Bugti said the deceased include officials of security force and civilians. ISPR confirmed 15 people were martyred including 7 civilians while 25 were injured, including 15 civilians.

The France worldwide came off the bench to head home in the 85th minute as the Gunners started their season with a thrilling 4-3 win. He's a fantastic player, but as well he has a big weight in this squad.

While Arsenal may seem to be the clear favourites due to their last encounters with the Foxes, the latter is known to have a lot of fire power that can do much damage in the opening match to Arsenal's campaign.

Lacazette had a terrific goal return in France last season, netting 28 strikes in 30 league appearances. We had some avoidable goals which we conceded and overall we have to work on that.

"I'm always looking for the positives, we came to the Emirates and the players executed the game plan". What the game was, though, is a reminder that beyond the incessant transfer rumours and long, moody shots of Arsene Wenger staring into nothingness awaits the adrenaline rush that only a good game of football can give.

'We wanted to do that today - unfortunately that didn't happen and it's something where we can look back and analyse the game and see where we went wrong and improve on the situation'.

"We were quite good a year ago on corners".
