EPL: Arsene Wenger braced for knife-edge Arsenal season

13 August 2017, 03:54 | Charlene Valdez

But after deciding to stick it out for a sixth season at Arsenal, Giroud was the north London club's match-winner on the opening day of the new Premier League campaign after coming off the bench. In the opening game of the season, Arsenal may have averted the comeback of "out with Wenger" chants for a bit, but the 4-3 win against Leicester City at the Emirates stadium was by no means decisive.

Substitute Olivier Giroud scored a late victor as Arsenal staged a dramatic fightback to kick off the new Premier League season with a pulsating 4-3 victory against Leicester City on Friday night.

Flying wing-back Sead Kolasinac and Welbeck saw another couple of chances come and go as the Gunners pressed for a second, but it was Leicester who found the game's next goal against the run of play 29 minutes in.

Both Lacazette and Giroud need strong seasons to make sure they are in the French party travelling to the World Cup in Russian Federation next summer.

But it was not to be as substitutes Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud struck late on to seal a remarkable three points for Arsene Wenger's side. Granit Xhaka added two assists as Leicester's Jamie Vardy tallied two goals of his own.


Arsenal who started without their usual centre back pair of Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertasacker went into the lead after just 94 seconds through new signing Alexandre Lacazzette.

'We have to take the positives out of the game, we have gone toe-to-toe with Arsenal over 90 minutes and I don't think many teams will come here and do that.

"It's impossible to keep them happy when strikers don't play". It was a relief for me he made a decision to stay.

Lucas Perez will nearly certainly leave the club after just one season due to limited game time, while the injured Joel Campbell has not been listed with a squad number, after several loan adventures.

Arsenal stepped up their preparations in training Thursday as they get ready to take on Leicester City in their Premier League curtain raiser against Leicester City tonight. We have many games and hopefully I can give games to all the strikers. Cech was unconvincing for Leicester's 2nd goal after he hesitated to come out to meet Marc Albrighton's cross, which Vardy converted to make it 1-2.
