Lacazette speaks on Arsenal debut

Lacazette speaks on Arsenal debut

Holding, lacking the confidence he usually displays, perhaps not getting adequate cover from Bellerin after a Granit Xhaka misplaced pass; picking Vardy to run across the defence with a simple tap-in.

The victor would come two minutes later when Frenchman Giroud headed in a Granit Xhaka corner that flicked off the bar and going in.

But it was not to be as substitutes Aaron Ramsey and Giroud struck late on to seal a remarkable three points for Wenger's side.

But those dreams quickly turned sour when Shinji Okazaki levelled, and by the time Jamie Vardy had given Leicester the lead supporters had seen just about enough.

S&P falls 1.4 percent in safety flight on North Korea tensions
Australia's S&P/ASX 200 edged down almost 0.1 percent to 5,760.90, while South Korea's Kospi fell 0.5 percent to 2,357.84. The UK blue-chip index closed 113 points, or 1.5%, lower at 7,385, steadily losing ground as the trading session wore on.

Wenger has previously cautioned that Lacazette may need time to adjust to English football, but made it clear that he expects plenty of goals from the club's record signing. The England striker has the password to Arsenal's defense.

The Emirates seemed to be readying itself for a collective booing at the break, as their team continued to toil.

Mascots are weird. Their function is hard to describe, the human inside is certainly a "character" and they do inexplicable things with regularity. Kolasinac joined Arsenal in the summer in a free transfer from Schalke.

The backline failed to deal with Marc Albrighton's cross or Harry Maguire's header across goal in the build-up to Okazaki's early equaliser, with Kolasinac guilty of wandering away from his back-post guard duty.

Egyptians love Shah Rukh Khan: Singer Shaimaa Elshayeb
Now, it will be interesting to see how Shah Rukh Khan's upcoming dwarf film by Anand L Rai will fare at the ticket window. The movie didn't earn expected amount at the box office and is still struggling to enter the coveted Rs 100 crore club.

The home fans stirred with angst once again, with another opening day defeat seemingly on the cards.

It gives Arsene Wenger more to consider than he might like for the first game of the season, but if there's a right time to have a minor injury crisis, it's while the squad is as big as it is now.

But the alterations eventually went from inexplicable to inspired in a chaotic finish to the game, as Arsenal roared back into the contest. First it was Ramsey, left wide open in the box off a cross into the danger area, and two minutes later it was Giroud, heading in a corner kick.

The manner of the victory makes it huge for Arsenal.

Gold buoyed by North Korea tensions, U.S. inflation data
The Labor Department said on Friday the Consumer Price Index (CPI) edged up 0.1% last month after being unchanged in June. The MSCI World index slipped 0.15 percent, extending Thursday's 1.1 percent drop, its biggest one-day slide since May 17.

A lot has changed since these two sides last met in April when Arsenal snatched a late slim 1-0 win gifted the Gunners courtesy of an own goal by Robert Huth.
