2017/18 season preview — Leicester City

2017/18 season preview — Leicester City

The Gunners have already lifted silverware without Sanchez this season after beating Chelsea in the final of the Community Shield last weekend. The Gunners will therefore go into the game in a confident mood even if there are a number of injury doubts for the clash. Let's talk about the five things that we learned, starting with something incredibly obvious. Arsenal gave us all of the heartbreak and elation that we normally feel throughout the span of an entire season and they gave it to us in the span of 90 minutes. He had a scan two days ago and he's out for a while.

One only has to go back to Leicester's title winning season in 2015/16 to find an enticing encounter between the two sides. The latter will also miss influential midfielder Danny Drinkwater in the opener to a thigh injury.

The jury is still out on Granit Xhaka, for the Swiss is rash at times, brilliant at others.

Arsenal implored Mike Dean for a penalty when Kolasinac's cross hit Wilfred Ndidi on a raised arm - from close range it must be said - but the referee waved the appealers on their way.

Jamie struct again in the 56th minute to make 3-2 for The Foxes before Aaron Ramsey's 83rd and Giroud's 85th minutes goals prove decisive at the Emirates Stadium.

So who will he choose from the available players that are fit and ready? He has a big weight in the squad and it was a relief for me that he decided to stay.

Liverpool broke their transfer record to sign the pacey winger, Mohamed Salah for £36.9m.

Leicester took the lead for the second time when Vardy, who let's be honest isn't the tallest striker in the league, outjumped all to head in a corner.

The Welshman controlled Xhaka's dinked cross with one touch and buried his shot into the far corner with the next.

"Giroud? He's fantastic", Wenger said of the France international, who usually started on the bench last season and had been linked with a move away from The Emirates.

If the answer is no you need to take a long, hard look at yourself. He didn't seem to be in sync he his team mates as he hit a few stray passes and just wasn't at his normal self but with a week of training coming he should be back to his usual standards in no time.

You want the Premier League to be the best league in the world and I think it has to produce this kind of game to produce interest and quality.

Arsenal looked headed for another dismal Opening Day when they went behind in the first half.

Arsenal also pursued Lacazette last year before finally reaching a deal with Lyon this summer that could be worth up to £52 million.
