Arsenal's new €53 million man enjoys dream start to Premier League life

"I'm always looking for the positives, we came to the Emirates and the players executed the game plan".

"We were punished on every single mistake by a Leicester team that was very efficient going forward".

Arsene Wenger's inspired changes paid dividends, though, as Ramsey levelled things up and then two minutes later Giroud turned the game completely on its head as Arsenal ended their opening-game hoodoo.

A feast of goals opened the Premier League season when Arsenal twice came from behind to beat Leicester City 4-3 with substitute Olivier Giroud heading a late victor.

"Top quality game and you want PL to be best in the world and you have to produce games like that", Wenger told reporters.

The lead unfortunately wouldn't last long as Leicester City eventually equalized just two minutes later, but the memory is one that both Lacazette and Arsenal fans will hold onto, as their new boy provided plenty of promise for the coming season. Arsenal welcomed Leicester City into Emirates Stadium on Friday to get the festivities rolling this season, and it appeared as if everyone would get a chance to use their Arsenal jokes for at least the next week.

Arsenal's new signing Frenchman Alexandre Lacazette took 94 seconds to make his mark with a header from Mohamed Elneny's curling cross to equal the record for the fastest opening goal in a Premier League season.

'I prefer to be on the pitch, ' the 30-year-old admitted in his post-match interview with Sky Sports.

"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". He doesn't want to leave, but at some stage I opened the door for him because I had many strikers.

"I feel as well that the goals we conceded, we can work together to get rid of that because one was a corner, one was a ball we lost in the build up and the third goal was on a corner again, so we conceded two goals on corners".
