Arsenal thriller gets season off to a flyer

Wenger told Sky Sports News after the game: "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.

Wenger was also without three of his top centre-backs on the pitch - suspended Laurent Koscielny, injured Per Mertesacker and Shkodran Mustafi, who remained on the bench - and said the defensive mistakes can be ironed out quickly. Friday-night matches were introduced last season, but this will be the first campaign-opener not to be played on a Saturday afternoon.

England striker Vardy claimed a goal either side of Danny Welbeck's equaliser at Emirates Stadium after strike partner Shinji Okazaki cancelled out Alexandre Lacazette's second-minute header.

Arsenal will be riding on their recent wins in the Community Shield and the FA Cup before that, against Premier League winners Chelsea.

Arsenal hope Lacazette will help them return to the top four of the Premier League table and qualify for the UEFA Champions League - something they missed out on last season for the first time since Arsene Wenger took over as manager in 1996.

Leicester have yet to beat the Gunners in the Premier League era with their last league win coming in 1983. Mauricio Pochettino brought only three players, and we can expect the same style of play by his team: high tempo, fast counter attacks, fierce pressing, and many goals.

Leicester four minutes later replied with a goal by Okazaki, and then Vardy reminded of themselves by 29 minutes, one of the main creators of championship success, "Leicester" rounded out a ideal cross from Albrighton.

"Why hasn't he just said I'm staying for one more season?"

"However, it's the Man City situation that's the concern and we've seen it all before with Robin van Persie's move to Manchester United".

"They are not anxious about the money because they aren't the ones getting it".

A crossfield ball found Hector Bellerin on the right, with the full-back playing the ball back to Mohamed Elneny, who floated in a first-time cross. Some players rush into deals because they think they have to go to avoid getting found out.
