Arsenal Win a Wild One on Opening Day

Arsenal and Leicester City served a firm reminder of why the Premier League is the most popular in the world with a seven-goal thriller to open the new season at the Emirates Stadium in London.

While Arsenal won just their second opening fixture in the last eight years, they were pushed all the way by the Foxes, who had led twice during a frenetic evening at the Emirates Stadium.

But goals from substitutes, Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud, in the 83rd and 85th minutes respectively, gave Arsenal the win in the opening night.

A insane game sees Arsenal winning 4-3 over Leicester City.

Arsenal who started without their usual centre back pair of Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertasacker went into the lead after just 94 seconds through new signing Alexandre Lacazzette.

However, the lack of organisation at the back coupled with far too many errors on display on Friday night will worry the Arsenal boss, as well as the club's world-weary fans.

While Arsenal may seem to be the clear favourites due to their last encounters with the Foxes, the latter is known to have a lot of fire power that can do much damage in the opening match to Arsenal's campaign.

Jamie Vardy has now scored five goals in his last five Premier League appearances against Arsenal. "He has a big weight in this squad and it was a relief for me that he chose to stay".

"To win like we did will only strengthen it and overall we have good ingredients in the squad and it is a good opportunity again to show it away from home". Cech was unconvincing for Leicester's 2nd goal after he hesitated to come out to meet Marc Albrighton's cross, which Vardy converted to make it 1-2. You can not keep the strikers happy when they don't play.

Arsenal leveled the score minutes before halftime when Danny Welbeck received a tap in after an odd scuffle in Leicester's box.

Arsenal came out the second half still struggling and Leicester scored their second goal from a corner to make it 2-3 in the 56th minute. We have many games and hopefully I can give games to all the strikers.

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.
