What The Managers Said After Arsenal Beat Leicester 4-3

What The Managers Said After Arsenal Beat Leicester 4-3

It's nearly time! Premier League is just hours away from returning to The Emirates as Arsenal prepare to take on Leicester City on the opening day of the season.

"I love the man and the player".

"At one stage I opened the door for him as I knew I had many strikers, and in the end he made a decision to stay", Wenger told BBC.

189 countries across the globe tuned into the season opening fixture of the 2017-18 Premier League, and they were treated to an absolute humdinger of the game, where the lead changed three times, Jamie Vardy bagged a brace and the nerves of home manager were stretched to breaking point. "We had some avoidable goals which we conceded and overall we have to work on that". It's no doubt going to spoil all of us because the rest of the games are going to suck by comparison.

"It is fantastic", Wenger replied when asked about Giroud's willingness to fight for his place.

But the home side's pressure in the final half hour turned the game back their way and Ramsey equalised with a shot from close range with seven minutes remaining.

Lacazette, who arrived for £45,6m from Lyon, was perfectly placed to take advantage of Wes Morgan misjudging Mohamed Elneny's cross, flicking in a low header to become the fastest-scoring debutant in Premier League history.

Following a short corner on the left, Marc Albrighton's deep cross was headed back across goal by Harry Maguire and Okazaki leapt to nod a header past Petr Cech.

Danny Welbeck levelled on the stroke of half time before Vardy headed his second of the game, but two goals in two minutes from Aaron Ramsey and Giroud stole it for Arsenal.

Vardy punished Arsenal for sloppy defending when he won a free header from Mahrez's corner to give Leicester the lead once again.

Arsenal recorded five victories and two losses in the pre-season and are flying high as they've beaten Chelsea in the Community Shield and picked up first piece of silverware this season.

Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare also talking to Sky Sports: "We spoke about being compact and being a threat with the pace of Vardy".

"I had an impact on the season, because at some stage the players came to see me and said: 'What's going on boss?"

It was the flawless way to seal an enthralling game that had threatened to end in defeat for the home side. "One was a corner, one on build-up, one on a corner again", he said.
