Arsenal 4, Leicester City 3

Sead Kolasinac

Arsene Wenger is relieved Olivier Giroud opted to stay at Arsenal this summer after the striker scored the victor in Friday's Premier League opener against Leicester. We have top quality strikers coming back.

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.

The presence of Lacazette among forward options including Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck, who impressed and netted Arsenal's second, led Wenger into a frank conversation with Giroud.

"Lacazette is simple - in every game he's stronger".

"This has happened to us the last three seasons here".

Leicester would not be disheartened though and Vardy struck again in the 56th minute from a Riyad Mahrez corner.

Lacazette scores his first EPL goal at the second minute of the match.After only 5 minutes both clubs were leveled 1-1 and we ended the first half in 2-2.

Le duel s'est conclu quand Bautista Agut a expédié un coup droit dans le filet, à la première balle de match de Federer. Le Suisse était d'ailleurs satisfait de son jeu.

But if Wenger plays two strikers then Giroud, with his physical presence, would be a really good complement to Lacazette, a lethal goalscorer that loves getting the ball inside the box.

The guests capitalised on the abundant mistakes from Arsenal players and their sloppy defending as Jamie Vardy eventually made it 2-1 from Marc Albrighton's cross around the half-hour mark.

Wenger added: "We know defensively we can do better but overall we produced a top-quality game". "Because one was a corner, one was a goal where we lost the ball in the build-up and the third goal was a corner again".

Yes, of course, I am convinced that we won 10 of the last 11 games, and we won against Man City in the semi-final and the final against Chelsea.

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. You can not keep the strikers happy when they don't play.

Many new talents could play the match against Leicester as manager Arsene Wenger has hinted several injury doubts as Mesut Ozil (ankle), Per Mertesacker (facial), Aaron Ramsey (muscular), and Jack Wilshere (leg) could all be sidelined.
