Leicester were just as culpable in the opening few minutes, allowing Lacazette a completely free header from a Mohamed Elneny cross, to score his first goal for Arsenal and first Premier League goal of the season after just 90 seconds.

4-3, Arsenal are top of the league and this game might not be topped in the 379 Premier League games that are to follow this season.

The Emirates Stadium exploded with joy, but they were sitting down, shaking their heads soon after as a quick corner caught Arsenal out and Shinji Okazaki, of all people, rose to head home the equaliser for the 2015-16 champions.

"I don't know whether Craig Shakespeare will play a 4-4-1-1 or a proper 4-4-2, but it's a good signing".

"He doesn't want to leave and I'm happy he wants to stay".

"We didn't manage to do that last season so I'm not super optimistic in that regard, but we have the firm intention of not selling him".

Arsenal beat Leicester in thrilling Premier League opener
Arsenal's two substitutes scored back-to-back goals within three minutes with fewer than 10 minutes left in the game. We had a lot of experienced defenders out injured for the game.

"It's a long time since we so much quality", Wenger said. Giroud is in his prime, at the top of his game.

The newspaper revealed on their website that the north London club have been eager to renew both Ozil and team mate Alexis Sanchez' contracts and are close to finalising one of those. They would look at it and ask why the club are selling him to a Premier League rival.

"Scoring three goals away from home is a positive and we'll get back on the training field to make sure we sort the problems out".

Mahrez did exactly that on 54 minutes from a corner after he himself challenged Cech's handling with a shot, and Vardy was again unchallenged as he rose easily to glance the ball in. We definitely expect them to be better than last season and mount a serious challenge for the title.

Elsewhere, Wenger has ruled out a move for Leicester wide man Mahrez after insisting the Gunners were "never close" in their pursuit of the player, per Jon Paul of the Leicester Mercury: "We were never close". We've been courageous to the end and thank God we won the game.

"That's a nice start but obviously I prefer to be on the pitch". FAST START The electric start to the campaign, with a match on the Friday night opening the league programme for the first time, was the prologue for a fast match of punch and counter- punch.
