Alexandre Lacazette scores just minutes into his Arsenal debut

Wenger rules Alexis Sanchez out of Arsenal clash with Leicester City

Thai-owned Leicester let a chance for victory slip away as Arsenal came from behind to win 4-3 in a thrilling English Premier League season opener on Friday night.

Arsene Wenger saw substitute Olivier Giroud score a late victor to see off Leicester before admitting he gave the striker a chance to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer.

Trailing 2-3, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger substituted Giroud and Aaron Ramsey for Elneny and Rob Holding, respectively, while Leicester City's Craig Shakespeare pulled Okazaki in favour of defensive midfielder Daniel Amartey. "We put ourselves in a commanding position and a few lapses in concentration have cost us", Vardy said after the game.

The new signing Alexandre Lacazette kicked off the party with his first Arsenal goal within 90 seconds. "Even when I played Giroud through the middle and him on the left he did very well on the left. It's a long time since we had so much quality [in attack]". "He's a collective player and an intelligent player".

Vardy slid the visitors ahead from Marc Albrighton's cross, only for Danny Welbeck to stroke level on half-time.

Police said the man had denied killing the missing woman and claimed he dropped her off on an island on Thursday night. The submarine's Danish inventor, Peter Madsen , is being held on suspicion of manslaughter in Wall's disappearance.

The Emirates was absolutely hopping at this stage and there was only ever going to be one outcome, the often maligned, Olivier Giroud, like Ramsey before him, came off the bench and scored the victor to send the stadium into raptures. "We had 27 attempts and they had three on target and three goals, but it's something we have to work on".

"I feel as well that the goals we conceded we can work to get rid of that because one was a corner, one was a ball we lost in the build-up and the third goal was on a corner again so we conceded two goals from corners".

One new recruit, defender Harry Maguire, felt Leicester gave the hosts a run for their money and - despite heading back to the east midlands with nothing to show for it - believes the display will hold them in good stead. We have many games and hopefully I can give games to all the strikers.

Arsenal will be looking to improve their Premier League form this season after the disappointment of their fifth-placed finish in the top flight last term. Jamie Vardy is back to his old self.
