Arsenal Opening Game: What does it tell us about the season ahead?

Arsene Wenger challenges Alexandre Lacazette to emulate former Man United star

Vardy bagged his brace when he capitalised on another piece of poor defending from the home side to fire Leicester into the lead in the 56th minute to make the scores 3-2. It's the players around him in terms of Arsene Wenger bringing in a better centre forward so he's not the focal point that everyone looks at and says he's not good enough.

Many observers may have thought Giroud's days at Arsenal were numbered following the arrival of fellow France striker Lacazette from Lyon for a club-record £46.5m fee.

For Arsenal, some positive momentum had already been achieved after beating Chelsea to win the Community Shield, and it continued early Friday, as Lacazette announced his arrival immediately with an unmarked yet hard and instinctive header off Mohamed Elneny's chipped-forward assist to give Arsenal a 1-0 lead.

But after deciding to stick it out for a sixth season at Arsenal, Giroud was the north London club's match-winner on the opening day of the new Premier League campaign after coming off the bench.

Giroud scores the dramatic victor to save Arsenal, a simply sensation moment and Leicester has their hearts broken again against Arsenal with a late goal scored against them. "First game of the season we played a classic, so for everybody at home it will have been fantastic to watch".

"The spirit of the team was absolutely outstanding, we were punished on every single mistake by a Leicester team who was very efficient", he added. "I must tell you I opened the door for him at some stage (to leave) because it's important for him to play".

Jose Mourinho confirms talks over Zlatan Ibrahimovic's Man United return
In the cups we never lost, and in the Europa League, we never lost, so for the whole season, we lost one match. Arsenal and Manchester City love to hold possession, allow the fullbacks to attack more than defend.

"It was a relief Giroud made a decision to stay".

The Premier League debut of Lacazette should help offset Arsenal's loss of Alexis Sanchez, who will not face Leicester because of an abdominal strain.

The first match of the 2017-2018 season in the Premier League was 100% successful.

Nigerian global, Kelechi Iheanacho, came on for his Premier League debut for Leicester but was unable to help the Foxes avoid defeat.

"I'm happy the goals we conceded we can work on together".

New signings, Kelechi Iheanacho and Harry Maguire will be available to start for Shakespeare's side as they hope to prove just how valuable they are.
