Arsenal's new €53 million man enjoys dream start to Premier League life

Arsenal's new €53 million man enjoys dream start to Premier League life

The Gunners emerged victorious against Craig Shakespeare's side with a 4-3 win in a breathtaking match at the Emirates last night to get their new campaign off to the flawless start.

That excitement was immediately transformed into celebration not two minutes into Lacazette's Premier League debut, as he bagged a pinpoint header to put the Gunners on top of Leicester City in the opening match of the new season.

"I opened the door for him at some stage as I had many strikers and it's important for him to play but I don't want him to go".

"I love the man and the player because he's a fantastic guy. committed (and) he loves the club", Wenger said.

Arsenal's victor also came from a set-piece, with Olivier Giroud heading home. In the end he chose to stay and it was one of the great days of recent weeks for me.

"We wanted to do that today - unfortunately that didn't happen and it's something where we can look back and analyse the game and see where we went wrong and improve on the situation".

'I'm very pleased for the team tonight, hopefully we're going to carry on'.

"The second goal was scored after a poor pass, which can happen, but we conceded the other two after corners".

It took all of 160 seconds for Leicester to get themselves back on level terms, with debutant Harry Maguire heading a deep Marc Albrighton cross back into the path of Shinji Okazaki, who was in the right place to turn the ball past Petr Cech.

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

The Serie A side have now said they will not increase their offer and Shakespeare is happy to have Mahrez in the team.

Lacazette is the seventh Arsenal player to score on his first Premier League appearance.

Vardy had better luck soon after, though, this time climbing highest to pick out the far corner of the net with his head from a corner to double his personal tally for the night.

"He came out and made a statement which we are all aware of but while he trains and plays and is professional the way he is, he will be considered for selection".
