Super-sub Giroud settles thrilling Premier League opener for Arsenal

Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud came off the bench snatch victory from the jaws of defeat for Arsenal, who opened the 2017-18 Premier League season with a topsy-turvy 4-3 thriller against Leicester City.

Arsenal also pursued Lacazette a year ago before finally reaching a deal with Lyon this summer that could be worth up to £52 million.

The Foxes were ahead twice despit Lacazette scoring just two minutes into his EPL debut, becaue as well as we played in midfield and attack the defence was shaky, with an unfamiliar trio of Holding, Monreal and Kolasinac drafted in.

"After that you have Lyon which is a special place in France as they have their own mentality".

Danny Drinkwater and Riyad Mahrez are both linked with a move away from the King Power Stadium this transfer window. When they play poorly he is their one-man get-out clause, capable of turning hopeful punts into flawless through balls and games of few chances into victories.

Bosnia is just one of 105 nations outside the British Isles who have supplied players to the Premier League in its 25-year history. "And it's not finished", he said. And they will certainly buy more. He scored with 12 of only 19 shots on target in the league for his former club, which as chance-conversion goes makes him not so much unsafe as actually radioactive. They are a team that starts out aggravating the fan base by not addressing all their needs in the transfer market, only for that to be forgotten due to a very hot start before going through a slump around when daylight savings time ends.

Arsenal have been pursuing Monaco's Thomas Lemar as well, but have yet to succeed in bringing the talented winger to the Emirates.

Ozil was originally a doubt for the visit of the Foxes but the Germany global returned to training on Thursday and should be given the all-clear to start. Following a season where fans were hiring planes to fly "Wenger Out" banners over stadiums during games, Arsenal is bringing back Arsene Wenger and almost the same group of his players.

"We were never close", he said, when asked about Arsenal moving for Mahrez. "I rate him as a player but we have similar types, with Alex Iwobi, Jack Wilshere back, and Mesut Ozil".

Other eye-catching newcomers include ex-Juventus midfielder Mario Lemina, who played in last season's Champions League final against Real Madrid, and Dutch defender Jairo Riedewald, who is reunited with his former manager Frank de Boer at Crystal Palace.
