Arsenal Edge Leicester in 7-Goal Premier League Thriller

  • Liverpool's kit then and now

Lacazette almost had his second of the night just minutes later, but Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel turned the shot aside, but Giroud beat the Dane with an exquisite header on the ensuing corner to give Arsenal the 4-3 victory.

A classic PL encounter saw Arsenal lead 1-0 after 94 seconds.

The 26-year-old gave his side the lead after just two minutes after getting onto the end of Mohamed Elneny's cross with a powerful header to beat the helpless Kasper Schmeichel.

Here's what we learned from a pulsating encounter in north London to open up the new PL campaign. However, Arsenal and Liverpool could well have something to say about that, especially if the Wembley factor derails Spurs.

The Foxes finished 12th past year, and they're hoping for better this time around.

It also freed up the Gunners' forwards, whose goals propelled the team to an end-of-season surge, culminating in an FA Cup final win.

Even though they showcased most of their flaws on Friday, you can't fault the spirit of Arsene Wenger's men.

They certainly started the right way, beating Chelsea for the Community Shield. "They've made good additions to the quality they already have there". Leicester's 3rd goal came from another cross into the box that no one, including Cech, came out to meet.

Although he did not connect cleanly, the ball squeezed through for Danny Welbeck to score. Central midfielders Mohamed Elneny and Granit Xhaka were nervous on the ball and slack in possession to gift Leicester the ball in unsafe positions time and time again. Jamie Vardy and Alexandre Lacazette are our glorious present and future.

"With Lacazette it is simple", Wenger said ahead of Friday's Premier League opener against Leicester City.

Wenger's gamble to field a back three featuring one recognised centre-back collapsed in a display of complete defensive incompetence.

When asked what the victory over Antonio Conte's side means for the Gunners, Wenger said: 'It will increase the belief but then you face a shock when the league starts.

Granit Xhaka's sloppy pass was picked up by Albrighton and he forged down the left flank before bending a sublime cross into the danger area that Vardy tapped home. Vardy knows how to score against Arsenal.

Champions: Manchester City. Pep's boys just look to have so many goals in their team and Ederson in goal could make a massive difference at the back.

'Let's focus on Leicester on Friday but let's not forget we've had hard starts at home in recent seasons.

Since the start of last season, Giroud has scored seven Premier League goals coming off the bench - three more than any other player in the same period.
