Arsenal edge out Leicester City 4-3 in thrilling Premier League opener

Arsene Wenger challenges Alexandre Lacazette to emulate former Man United star

The Frenchman brought on Olivier Giroud and Aaron Ramsey to improve the attack, and his decision was rewarded as the duo scored in the final ten minutes to bring home Arsenal's second opening day victory in eight seasons.

Arsenal are now unbeaten in 22 Premier League games against Leicester City - winning 15 and drawing seven - and they have won 11 successive Premier League home games against the Foxes.

Arsenal record-signing Alexandre Lacazette launched his English league career in style by heading in the opener after 94 seconds.

Arsene Wenger has revealed his delight with how Alexandre Lacazette has adapted to life at Arsenal.

Granit Xhaka added two assists as Leicester's Jamie Vardy tallied two goals of his own.

'It's impossible. You know that you can not keep them happy when they don't play, ' Wenger told Sky Sports. He'll play 30 games, he'll give you 15 goals. There were 14 of them from open play in the first 45 minutes alone.

"We're disappointed to score three and come away with a defeat", said Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare.

McIlroy Blames "Complete Different" Course After Tough 2nd Round At The PGA
Fowler did it differently than Day did, mostly because he played a tougher course. Sunny skies and temperatures in the 80s baked the course and the greens.

"He did very well on the left when we moved him. Tonight we needed this win and everyone knows the first game is important for the confidence". We showed what we're capable of, showed heart and spirit.

Emmanuel Adebayor arrived to the Premier League as a relatively unknown 22-year-old, but.

However he showed his worth by scoring the victor against Leicester City on Friday night, and afterwards said his heart remains with the Gunners.

Sead Kolasinac marked his debut with a goal in the Community Shield and forced Kasper Schmeichel into a smart save here with a driven shot from just inside the box, but the Gunners again fell behind to Vardy's strike. Because of this, the club should seek out one or more strikers to keep its competitive edge going forward.

Arsenal pressured after the equalizer and almost scored through Kolasinac, but a needless turnover on the other end between Elneny and Granit Xhaka allowed Leicester to take its first lead of the match.

In second place is Colombian Faustino Asprilla, who scored on the second minute mark for Newcastle against Sheffield Wednesday in 1997-98.

Referee Mike Dean (2nd R) was at the center of attention of failing to spot a handball by Mesut Ozil in the run up to Arsenal's third goal.
