Arsenal rally late to defeat Leicester on opening night

Arsenal rally late to defeat Leicester on opening night

Giroud's clever header in the 85th minute secured the points after Lacazette had taken just 94 seconds to make his mark with a header from Mohamed Elneny's curling cross, equalling the record for the fastest opening goal in a Premier League season.

Ibrahimovic also arrived from Ligue 1 last season, joining Manchester United from Paris Saint-Germain as he scored 17 league goals and 28 in all competitions.

"He is an intelligent player who can integrate our game well as we have a game backed on mobility, technique".

"Alexis will not be available for example, so I can not go into the game with too many uncertainties", Wenger said.

The CBOE Volatility Index, a barometer of expected near-term stock market volatility, closed at its highest since the election. Ongoing global glut concerns lingered in oil markets despite a bigger-than-expected draw in USA crude inventories.

Lacazette scores the season's opening goal. Giroud headed a late victor to guide the Gunners home.

While there remains question-marks over the Arsenal future of Alexis Sanchez, who misses the visit of the Foxes with an abdominal injury, Lacazette will be aiming to become a new fan-favourite in north London. During Leicester's fairy-tale title winning campaign in 2015/16, they lost only three matches and two of those were to Wenger's men.

"We had some avoidable goals which we conceded and overall we have to work on that", he said referring to poor marking in the by his team's defence.

Is he going to do the job of Shinji Okazaki?

Jamier Vardy's brace threatened to steal the show but Arsenal twice came from behind to beat Leicester City.

But Welbeck had the last word of the first half for the home side when he equalised from close range in added time after new signing Sead Kolasinac's tap forward in a goalmouth melee.

Though Arsenal began the second half on the front foot, Leicester created the cleaner chances, Cech rushing out of his box to tackle Vardy and then tipping over a shot by Riyad Mahrez, and after 11 minutes they went in front again.

Xhaka sent the ball in and it fell to Giroud, who powered in a header off the underside of the bar, sparking wild celebrations at the Emirates.

    Gaines and a second-round pick in the 2018 draft is the boldest commitment yet to that aim. "Just surprised it happened so fast". That may prove to be a big "if" but Watkins has proven to me a very efficient player when he can stay on the field.
