Powered by record sprees, Premier League ready for landmark season

Wenger acknowledged it would be hard to give playing time to all of his attackers, but was happy with all the contributions on Friday night. If so you would have been disappointed but for anyone else it was an absolue thriller and in the end it was a happy night because the Arsenal managed to win.

However, there was one more twist in the tale as Olivier Giroud came off the bench to snatch a victor in the 86th minute as his header from a late corner came off the bar and dropped over the line to secure Arsenal a dramatic 4-3 win.

The same opponents - and hot favourites for the Premier League title under Pep Guardiola - return south today (5.30pm) to the sold-out Amex with Hughton urging his troops to embrace the 38 tests facing them to achieve the goal this season of survival.

Sanchez led Arsenal with 24 goals last season, and was the only Premier League player to reach double figures in both goals and assists (10).

Leicester took the lead again when Vardy headed in Riyad Mahrez's corner before Arsene Wenger made an inspired double substitution which sparked Arsenal's comeback.

"All pre-season he's looked sharp and fit", said Shakespeare, who gave Nigerian striker Kelechi Iheanacho his competitive debut as a late substitute.

Mariners ace James Paxton placed on DL, out until September
Reliever Blake Parker got Ben Gamel to ground back to the mound and then struck out pinch hitter Yonder Alonso to end the inning. Andrew Moore , the Mariners' recently recalled rookie, replaced Pagan in the sixth inning, which he got through with no problem.

A predictable Arsenal implosion followed, with Shinji Okazaki and Jamie Vardy putting Leicester in front.

Because the Dream Team game - the UK's biggest fantasy football game - is back and better than ever this season. "We were quite good a year ago on corners and overall I believe that with a bit of work we can get that out of the system", the French coach added. Although Arsenal signed off in May by lifting the FA Cup, a fifth-place finish ensured the north London club failed to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in two decades.

"It's not something urgent, that we are desperate to have it done or not done, I just think that he was very clear by showing what he did previous year was not enough for him". There was still plenty to do, but somehow Lacazette found the pace and the direction to plant a header into the bottom corner, with not even two minutes showing up yet on the clock.

Wenger said he had given the former Montpellier man the chance to leave but is delighted he opted to stay put.
