Wenger: Giroud passed up chance to leave

For Arsenal's part, it wasn't helping that Kasper Schmeichel was at that point meeting every test in a way that the home defence was not, blocking an Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain shot at one moment and then denying Lacazette the next.

Arsenal have won their last 10 Premier League home games against Leicester City.

Wenger has revealed how uncertainty over his future last season created a "lack of clarity in the dressing room" and saw players asking him what was going on. New signing Lacazette took no time scoring in front of his new fans as he scored a true strikers goal.

The ideal 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.

It's good to have the Premier League back, eh?

After undergoing solid preparation for the EPL opener, including beating Chelsea in the Community Shield, Arsenal were expected to start the season in a serene manner - score a couple of goals, make that back three look solid and pick up the three points without too much fuss.

Shakespeare praised Vardy, as well Harry Maguire after the close-season recruit from Hull City turned in an all-action debut from centre-back.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger on Thursday backed a female manager to be in charge of a football club in the English Premier League (EPL) in the coming years.

Giroud, 30, started just 11 Premier League matches last season and scored 12 goals.

"Why hasn't he just said I'm staying for one more season?" FAST START The electric start to the campaign, with a match on the Friday night opening the league programme for the first time, was the prologue for a fast match of punch and counter- punch.

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. To lose in the manner we did is very disappointing. Some players rush into deals because they think they have to go to avoid getting found out.

Indeed, their left-flank throws caused Arsenal problems: Christian Fuchs' deliveries were so powerful they were clearing the near post and Petr Cech was forced to awkwardly palm one ball away from his goal-line when it might have been heading in (although it wouldn't have actually counted as a goal).
