Arsenal without Sanchez for season opener

Arsenal without Sanchez for season opener

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. But ultimately this was a fine way to start the campaign for the home supporters as Arsenal put on a ludicrous demonstration of gung-ho football throughout the second half before Giroud's victor. Leicester showed some of the form that won them the title in 2016 and helped stave off relegation last term but in the end they were undone by canny France global Giroud who has been linked with a move away from Arsenal all summer. Aaron Ramsey and super-sub Olivier Giroud are usually good for a late goal and they did just that to claw three points away from Leicester and to the Gunners.

Here are three quick thoughts from the Emirates 4-3 comeback win vs. Leicester.

"Lacazette is simple in every game", Wenger said after the match.

4-3, Arsenal are top of the league and this game might not be topped in the 379 Premier League games that are to follow this season.

The 23-year-old England worldwide has struggled to secure a regular place since arriving at Arsenal six years ago, but Wenger believes the winger has the potential to become a great player.

We are going to try to win the title. "Last season, two of them were not in Europe", Mourinho said . He gives me something I really like which is consistency. "So we will go for it this season".

The visitors then took a shock lead as a sloppy pass from Xhaka gifted Leicester possession 30 yards from goal and Jamie Vardy was on hand to turn home a superb Marc Albrighton cross for 1-2 in the 29th minute.

But the 31-year-old Shinji Okazaki was quick to even the score within minutes with a timely assist from Leicester's new signing Harry Maguire.

"I'm disappointed with the handball in the build-up, but once the corner's given you have to defend it better", he said.

Albrighton was again the man to make a difference. One of them nearly saw Vardy get around Cech only for the goalkeeper to make a fine sliding tackle, only for Leicester to return to a more orthodox and obviously successful way of attacking against this side: swinging balls into the area.

Arsenal looked a beaten team when Leicester led 3-2 early in the second half after Vardy grabbed his second goal before the substitutions gave them new vigour in attack. Creating high wages like Ozil's potential new earnings can create problems with other players questioning why they aren't worth the funds.
