Opening-day woe for Leicester

Arsenal supporters and the on-looking injured Alexis Sanchez must have felt they'd seen it all before, as poor marking, positioning and organisation presented the visitors with three clear-cut chances they gladly seized. Holding came out late in the match in favor of center forward Olivier Giroud and somehow the plan worked. But the 31-year-old Shinji Okazaki was quick to even the score within minutes with a timely assist from Leicester's new signing Harry Maguire. "If you look at that from a neutral point, for a first game it was a top quality game".

Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare is confident of retaining all the players he wants to keep in his squad but is wary of approaches from rivals as the transfer window enters its final weeks.

The 2017-18 Premiere League season started off with an absolute thriller between Arsenal and Leicester City on Friday.

Wenger doubled down and went with none.

The ensuing reshuffle left Arsenal with a winger - Oxlade-Chamberlain - at right-back, a right-back - Bellerin - at left-back and two left-backs - Kolasinac and Nacho Monreal - at center-back.

Two minutes later, the comeback was complete, with super-sub Giroud sending the home fans wild via magnificent header from a Xhaka corner, despite being held by Wes Morgan. Ramsey capitalized with an equalizer in the 83rd minute. His next touch was heading the ball into the back of the net in the second minute and the Premier League was off and running.

Lacazette will make his Premier League debut on Friday when Arsenal open the season at home against Leicester, and the former Lyon striker faces high expectations after netting at least 20 league goals per season over the past three campaigns in France.

Jamie Vardy scored to put Leicester ahead just before the half-four mark after a cross from Marc Albrighton, while the awful Leicester centre-back (at least on this day) allowed Danny Welbeck to equalize.

GOAL! Lacazette heads Arsenal in front after 94 seconds! Then Leicester went 2-1 up.

Instead Leicester remained winless against Arsenal in 22 matches.

"We're gonna win the league!" sang the Leicester fans and they nearly had a third goal to cheer when Okazaki's header from Christian Fuchs's cross bounced just wide of Cech's left-hand post.
