Arsenal beat Leicester 4-3 in thrilling Premier League opener — Football

Play resumes with no changes in personnel on either side. It's now likely Sanchez is out of action for the whole of August. Rob Holding has been superb since being drafted in and this season will be a huge one for the Englishman.

This obviously isn't to say that Wenger shouldn't have replaced him as the club's main centre-forward.

"At some stage it didn't look like (a win)".

Honestly, you could not have asked for more to open the Premier League season for the 2017-18 campaign. The biggest absentee is Alexis Sanchez, who has been heavily linked with a summer exit. To be fair to the Egyptian, he had one of, if not his best game in an Arsenal shirt against Chelsea last Sunday so dropping him would have been harsh.

"They had chances and then we had to chase".

Welcome back, ladies and gentlemen, to a new season reminiscent of the old at the Emirates. The Chile international also has under 12-months left on his deal. Robert Huth is the third absentee from Shakespeare's squad.

According to the information portal of the British "Daily Mail" in the "Arsenal" strongly trying to make with Sanchez new long-term contract.

Cech admitted it was a sloppy display from the Gunners' rearguard, but he took heart with the way they recovered to snatch the points.

Giroud outmuscled Harry Maguire to meet Granit Xhaka's corner with a strong header that hit the bar and bounced behind the line before Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel could club it away. The home side's new French signing Alexandre Lacazette had given them an early lead.

Jamie Vardy has scored Leicester City's last three goals against Arsenal in the Premier League.

Arsenal haven't lost three consecutive opening day fixtures since 1960.

Keeping hold of him is vital for Arsenal to challenge for the Premier League title.

Will Lacazette enjoy an emphatic Arsenal debut on Friday?

And that was certainly true of Arsenal's defending.

"No", he said. "And that is a determined no". "Yes, but we scored four goals as well and the game was of quality".

Leicester's history against Arsenal is anything but favorable.

But the decision to keep Olivier Giroud at the Emirates has been a great one from Arsene Wenger.

However, there was still one more goal to come in a pulsating first-half, with Danny Welbeck netting from close-range after good play from Kolasinac.

It was a tough season for Arsenal fans as Arsene Wenger's men failed to qualify for the Champions League.
