EPL: Arsenal Set to Open Season against Leicester Tonight

EPL: Arsenal Set to Open Season against Leicester Tonight

Arsene Wenger hailed "fantastic" Olivier Giroud for staying at Arsenal this summer after the French striker came on to score a late victor in Friday's dramatic 4-3 win over Leicester. Egypt worldwide Mohamed Elneny sent a cross that was met by Lacazette, who headed the ball beyond Kasper Schmeichel.

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.

The subs paid off, with Ramsey scoring in the 83rd minute to make it 3-3 and Giroud heading in off the post two minutes later to win a thrilling encounter for Arsenal.

Alexandre Lacazette gave Arsenal the lead early in the game in a dream debut for the French forward.

Arsenal turned around the league's first Friday opener in the closing minutes at Emirates Stadium. He adapts slowly to the way we want to play. 'To come away to the Emirates, score three goals but concede four is disappointing especially as a defender.

Arsenal struggled all game against Leicester's high pressure, and it was a mistake from Elneny and Granit Xhaka against the pressure that led the Jamie Vardy's goal to make it 2-1.

Diame - who scored six goals in all competitions last season - retired from worldwide football in March. I know it's a big responsibility considering I have become one of the most expensive goalkeepers.

Leicester took the lead again when Vardy headed in Riyad Mahrez's corner before Arsene Wenger made an inspired double substitution which sparked Arsenal's comeback.

The England global, who scored twice in the game, watched helplessly as Arsenal came from 3-2 down to grab an incredible 4-3 victory over the Foxes. We had some avoidable goals which we conceded and overall we have to work on that.

Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare said he was "disappointed" that referee Mike Dean did not spot what he described as a "definite handball" by Mesut Ozil in the build-up to Ramsey's equaliser. "To come here and score three has to be pleasing in some respect, but it doesn't feel like it".

Because the Dream Team game - the UK's biggest fantasy football game - is back and better than ever this season.

Arsenal will be looking to improve their Premier League form this season after the disappointment of their fifth-placed finish in the top flight last term.
