Craig Shakespeare disappointed with late Leicester City loss at Arsenal

Share

The flawless 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.

It's likely no one is more relieved with the result than Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who kept his job after missing an invite to the Champions League for the first time in his 21-year tenure with the club and months of non-stop shouts of "WENGER OUT" from supporters. They are winless in 21 top-flight games against the Gunners, losing 14 of those matches.

"Lacazette is getting stronger in every game and tonight he put in a very convincing performance".

Danny Welbeck almost finished off an attacking move for Arsenal after a few one-touch exchanges with Mesut Ozil but his shot was blocked by Harry Maguire.

Arsenal pulled level just before halftime through Danny Welbeck, who is, contrary to rumors, still alive. We've been courageous to the end and thank God we won the game.

As of the end of the quarter California Public Employees Retirement System had acquired 11,200 shares growing its position 13.8%. The company had revenue of $592 million for the quarter, compared to analysts' expectations of $592.96 million.

In the 29th minute, Jamie Vardy gave the visitors a 2-1 advantage, scoring from close range after a superb ball into the area by Marc Albrighton, who exploited a blunder by Arsenal's Granit Xhaka.

However, there was one more twist in the tale as Olivier Giroud came off the bench to snatch a victor in the 86th minute as his header from a late corner came off the bar and dropped over the line to secure Arsenal a dramatic 4-3 win.

Petr Cech has seen better days after conceding three goals, and he said Leicester did well to pounce on Arsenal's errors.

But Arsenal entered the match with a dismal record of one win, three losses and three draws in their last seven season openers. The club will still run an attack-first mentality, but the improved personnel on defence should help patch up last season's biggest weakness. But we have all the other players prepared in pre-season and they are all ready.

"If you were a manager and you were on the bench, 3-2 down with 20 minutes to go and you win 4-3, you're more happy than concerned you know". I think having the depth in the squad is important.

The Foxes finished 12th past year, and they're hoping for better this time around.
