Arsenal beat Leicester City 4-3 in Premier League opener

Arsenal beat Leicester City 4-3 in Premier League opener

"Maybe not (enough changes) to win the league, which ultimately is what they want to do", Neville said on Sky Sports.

Wenger was also pleased with new French signing Alexandre Lacazette, who scored after 94 seconds to equal the record for the fastest opening goal of a Premier League season.

"Obviously I knew that I was going to have a chance so we tried to push", Giroud said.

Substitute Aaron Ramsey slammed home and 83rd minute equaliser before Olivier Giroud met Granit Xhaka's corner to win the season opener.

"We have many games and hopefully, I can give them games", Wenger said during his post match conference.

Wenger has always been desperate to keep Giroud because he offers something so different with his aerial presence but was also willing to let him leave if he felt that he needed a guarantee that he would start more regularly in this World Cup season. "He's a collective player and an intelligent player".

The lead was short lived as Shinji Okazaki restored parity via his head only minutes later and Jamie Vardy slid in to score just before the half-hour mark.

"The first goal was from a short corner and we were not focused enough". You can not keep the strikers happy when they don't play.

Then I think most of teams just want to stay in the Premier League, but the bottom three I am going for Huddersfield, Brighton and Burnley as the three to go down - I think there will be so many teams battling.

After enduring a troubled campaign marred by fan protests against him last season, Wenger desperately needs a strong start this term. We have top quality strikers coming back.

"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".

"We were quite good previous year on corners and overall I believe that with a bit of work we can get that out of the system".
