Premier League season starts in style

Premier League season starts in style

In the opening game of the season, Arsenal may have averted the comeback of "out with Wenger" chants for a bit, but the 4-3 win against Leicester City at the Emirates stadium was by no means decisive.

But Ozil returned to training this week and is expected to feature in the opening Premier League game of the season tonight (7.45pm United Kingdom time) when Arsenal host Leicester.

The club's star signing of the summer, Alexandre Lacazette, put his new team ahead 1-0 before the two-minute mark, heading-in a cross from Mohamed Elneny.

Wenger said he gave Giroud the option to leave for another club this summer in search of more regular playing time but was thrilled when the striker made a decision to stay.

"I can not say I am immune to criticism - everybody wants to be loved, everybody wants to be loved by the fans".

"I can not go into the game with too many uncertainties".

The Gunners had won just one of their last seven opening-day fixtures and looked destined to start another campaign slowly as the 2015-16 champions took the lead twice only to lose 4-3. "I know how important he is not only as a player but also in the group".

"We started really well and I thought we could stay in control".

Football tactics historian Jonathan Wilson suggested Arsenal needed more center backs who could win headers after Leicester's first goal. Giroud is in his prime, at the top of his game. "Yeah, we have top quality".

Wenger, who has repeatedly insisted the Chile global will stay in north London, was eager to stress that Sanchez's absence from training was due to an abdominal strain he picked up before the game against Chelsea in the Community Shield. "On the second goal we lost the ball in the build-up and were punished", the 67-year-old added.

"For a first game, it was a top-quality game".

"At some stage, I had to tell them, "Look guys, I am with you, but we have to win games".

"Even if people will say, OK we conceded three goals".

The Frenchman saved the day as he popped up to score the victor on the 85th minute - just 18 minutes after being introduced for Mohamed Elneny.

"The Arsenal subs proved super subs as they inflicted defeat on Leicester. Ramsey scored in the 83rd minute, f" Obviously I knew that I was going to have a chance so we tried to push.
