And we won! The fact that Arsenal have shown the fight needed to come back from adversity as well as the ability going forward to score four goals against one of the most organised defences in England is very encouraging for the season ahead.

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. And yet Arsenal failed to break to level the scores - Welbeck sent the ball into the goal after a failed attempt to Lacazette grabbed a brace.

Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud came off the bench to fire a late turn-around and 4-3 win over Leicester City, and give Arsene Wenger just his second opening-day win since 2010.

Wenger was also pleased with new French signing Alexandre Lacazette, who scored after 94 seconds to equal the record for the fastest opening goal of a Premier League season.

Alexis Sanchez will miss at least the first two games of the Premier League season for Arsenal, with coach Arsene Wenger saying the absence is due to injury rather than doubts surrounding the forward's future at the club.

"Of course you can not afford to concede three goals at home".

Leicester have yet to beat the Gunners in the Premier League era with their last league win coming in 1983.

It took as little time for Leicester to quell any growing home optimism from that, as Harry Maguire headed a Marc Albrighton cross back across goal for Shinji Okazaki to then nod in himself from just yards.

It was an exciting game, the neutrals will have had a good time and both sides will take positives. "I wanted some Premier League, British experience", Shakespeare added. A cross from Elneny found the head of Lacazette, who opened his body, drawing Wes Morgan to power a header into the far post of Schmeichel. Creating high wages like Ozil's potential new earnings can create problems with other players questioning why they aren't worth the funds. The Toffees sold Romelu Lukaku for 75 million pounds to Manchester United and have invested the money wisely, bringing in Wayne Rooney, Michael Keane, Davy Klaassen, Jordan Pickford and Sandro Ramirez making them one of the teams to look out for this season.
