Arsenal Outfoxes Leicester City In Tremendous EPL Opener

Vardy scored his first goal against the run of play in the 29th minute to give Leicester its first lead of the season and a brief stint at the top of the table.

In the 67th minute Giroud and Ramsey were brought on for Elneny and Holding, and those men would help turn the tide in Arsenal's favor.

Following his new two-year contract the pressure had eased on Wenger over the summer after improved displays in April and May with a 3-4-3 system, an FA Cup victory to end last season and the signing of Alexandre Lacazette.

Arsenal is coping with missing out on the Champions League for the first time in two decades, while Leicester City endured a rocky defense to its improbable 2015-16 title but managed to stay up under managerial replacement Craig Shakespeare and is hoping for a more sane season going forward.

Straight away both Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud had an impact and both capped their cameos with impressive goals to give the Gunners all three unlikely looking points, but will both have earned themselves a place in the starting line-up for the next Arsenal match? At one stage I opened the door for him to go as I knew I had many strikers, and in the end he made a decision to stay.

Danny Welbeck was able to score late in the first-half to draw level at 2-2 at the break, but the action was far from done. "He has a big weight in this squad and it was a relief for me that he chose to stay".

The Navy said the sub was seen sailing, but then sank shortly afterwards. He claims he dropped the woman off at Refshaleøen three hours later.

"That's a nice start but obviously I prefer to be on the pitch".

The last player to score a goal faster on their Premier League debut was Thievy Bifouma, who came on for his Premier League debut for West Brom at half-time and scored after just 36 seconds in a 3-1 defeat at Crystal Palace in February 2014. He doesn't want to leave and I'm happy that he wants to stay.

You've got a £50m budget to pick 11 players, with all the biggest new signings ready and raring to go ahead of a mouthwatering new Premier League campaign.

"Once again, we had to come back and the team showed it was very well prepared because it could cope with the unpleasant situation", said Cech.

"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".
