Leicester lose late to Arsenal in ridiculous 7 goal opener

BT Sport Score team make their Premier League predictions for the opening weekend

"At one stage I opened the door for him as I knew I had many strikers, and in the end he made a decision to stay". First, Aaron Ramsey's driven finish after a fantastic outside of the foot pass from Granit Xhaka levelled the scoring after 83 minutes, and then just two minutes they gunners were in-front, as Olivier Giroud powerfully headed home from a corner, after out-muscling Leicester debutant Harry Maguire.

The response, however, was exactly what manager Craig Shakespeare would have been hoping for.

He stretched Nacho Monreal and Rob Holding at every opportunity, ghosting past both players to score Leicester's second from Marc Albrighton's sumptuous left wing cross after five minutes. Jamie Vardy and Alexandre Lacazette are our glorious present and future.

Now with a freaky back four of (from right to left) Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Monreal, Kolasinac and Hector Bellerin, Arsenal pushed for an equaliser, and on 83 minutes it came.

"With Lacazette, it is simple", the French tactician said, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

With 65 minutes on the clock Wenger turned to Ramsey and Giroud, the former nearly making an instant impact by narrowly missing the target when getting on the end of a left-sided cross. Numerous times at the back end of last season they found winners late on.

The 30-year old put his side 2-1 ahead of Arsenal in the 29th minute after a goal from Okazaki had cancelled Lacazette's opener.

"We wanted to do that today - unfortunately that didn't happen and it's something where we can look back and analyse the game and see where we went wrong and improve on the situation". He is adapting to the way we want to play. "He did very well on the left when we moved him".

I'm not saying he should be Arsenal's number one striker; that wouldn't be enough if Arsenal were trying to win a Premier League or Champions League which a club of this size should be.

"The season started with a lovely game which met all expectations".

Lacazette also scored on his Premier League debut.

Because the Dream Team game - the UK's biggest fantasy football game - is back and better than ever this season.

Arsenal are now unbeaten in 22 Premier League games against Leicester City - winning 15 and drawing seven - and they have won 11 successive Premier League home games against the Foxes.
