Giroud header seals Arsenal win in season opening thriller

He loves Arsenal and is loved- Wenger hails match-winner Giroud

The 2017/18 Premier League season kicks off on Friday as Arsenal host Leicester City at the Emirates. Arsenal are on the heels of a Community Shield victory and Leicester City are still patting themselves on the back for stealing Kelechi Iheanacho from Manchester City for a relatively low fee in this market.

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. "We have to try and win most of games that we compete in but we know the rollercoaster that the Premier League can be as well". I thought Rob Holding might get hooked, as he's looked the most uncomfortable in an Arsenal back three that struggled collectively on the back foot throughout the first half. Leicester: Kasper Schmeichel 7, Danny Simpson 6, Wes Morgan 6, Harry Maguire 7, Christian Fuchs 6, Riyad Mahrez 6, Wilfred Ndidi 7, Matty James 6, Marc Albrighton 8, Shinji Okazaki 7, Jamie Vardy 9.

"He wanted to stay and that was one of the greatest days I've had in recent months".

Arsenal will be among the sides hoping to challenge for the Premier League this season.

Sanchez hit 24 Premier League goals last term, his best-ever return, though it wouldn't be enough to stop Arsenal missing out on Champions League football for the first time in 21 years.

"At the moment the most active have been United, City and Liverpool a bit", the French coach explained. With all the turmoil that's already been listed here, it should come as no surprise that neither player has a new contract entering this season.

The 26-year-old might not be as deadly as the Chilean.

"We didn't manage to do that last season so I'm not super optimistic in that regard, but we have the firm intention of not selling him".

With the Gunners missing a lot of key players ahead of the match, Craig Shakespeare might just be fancying his team's chances of springing a surprise.

"In the middle of the transfer market it's hard to predict".

While other sides have had significant squad overhauls, Arsenal have only brought in Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette, although the latter did cost £54m.
