Alexandre Lacazette challenged to continue scoring record at Arsenal — Arsene Wenger exclusive

Alexis Sanchez

Alexis Sanchez

It was the Frenchman's 26th headed goal since he signed for Arsenal in June 2012, a Premier League record.

Late goals from substitutes Giroud and Aaron Ramsey cancelled out Leicester's 3-2 lead and ensured the Gunners kicked off their 2017/18 campaign on a winning note. Improvements will have to be made, but for now, NA NA NA, NA NA NA NA, NA NA NA NA, GIROUD!

"Personally, I think he is a hugely talented player". Confused? Who wouldn't be.

After a seemingly endless summer break, English football is back, and the 2017/18 Premier League is ready for kick-off. The roof lifted off the Emirates. But not for long. Mesut Özil lost possession in a dangerous spot. And move on from there. Moreover, the King Power Stadium outfit had just three shots on target the entire game and were clinical on all occasions. He sprinted to nod the ball back to Shinji Okazaki, whose movement was sparkier than any opponent and he finished instinctively.

Claudio Ranieri's Fearless Foxes had stepped into the brave, the previously uncharted territory of the Champions, but now, they had to prove their achievement was no fluke, and that they were worthy possessors of a status that everyone craves for but few go on to achieve.

Chile international Alexis Sanchez has been ruled out with an abdominal strain. Rob Holding was robbed of the ball.

Since the end of last season, transfer records have been shattered across the country as over one billion pounds has changed hands in a frenzy that could well set a new high for a single window. If he adapts with his team mates, he could win the award.

Costa is not a part of his side's plans for the future, while Matic joins Chelsea's title-rivals, Manchester United, in a £40m deal. This was only Leicester City's second defeat in their last 17 Premier League away games. He adapts slowly to the way we want to play.

'In the short term he will remain an Arsenal player, ' said the Arsenal manager. "I can take a gamble on one, maybe maximum two", Wenger said.

"It's simple, in every game he is stronger since he joined us", Wenger said. Bellerín was free in the box but Schmeichel smothered.

Islam Slimani has a knee problem which has hampered his preparations for this match up and therefore Jamie Vardy looks to start as a lone striker.

Both Ozil and Sanchez have under 12 months remaining on their contracts with Arsenal.

Regaining belief Arsenal went for the jugular. The atmosphere cranked up, the expectancy crept back into play.

However, it is Man City who have the best goals per game ratio, averaging 2.5 per match.
