  • Leicester back in the shadows after fairytale journey

LONDON - Arsene Wenger hailed "fantastic" Olivier Giroud for staying at Arsenal this summer after the French striker came on to score a late victor in Friday's dramatic 4-3 win over Leicester.

Arsenal got off to a quick start in this one, with Alexandre Lacazette scoring just a little over a minute into the game to give himself his first-ever Premier League goal of his career.

Nevertheless, it was Arsenal who emerged victorious, as two goals in the final 10 minutes from substitutes Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud sealed a dramatic victory for the Gunners.

Arsenal weren't celebrating for long because just 160 seconds later, Leicester had equalised through Shinji Okazaki.

Jamie Vardy put the visitors ahead from Marc Albrighton's cross on the half-hour mark, only for Danny Welbeck to strike level on half-time.

For Leicester City, the 2017-18 Premier League season is a chance to show that they're somewhere in between last season's 12th-place finish and 2015-16's title win.

Sanchez has one year left on his current contract but Arsene Wenger has said that last season's top scorer will be at the club this season, even if there is no progress on an extension to his deal.

The electric start to the campaign, with a match on the Friday night opening the league programme for the first time, was the prologue for a fast match of punch and counter-punch.

"We're gonna win the league!" sang the Leicester fans and they nearly had a third goal to cheer when Okazaki's header from Christian Fuchs's cross bounced just wide of Cech's left-hand post. Are they going to be more adventurous?

The Frenchman got 28 Ligue 1 goals in 30 appearances last season and will be looking to replicate those figures in the Premier League this term.

'Tell my family I love them'
The encounter was filmed on a camera in Smith's glasses that he bought on Amazon, according to the release. The officer survived, but the bullets severed a vein in his neck and shattered bones in both of his arms.

But perhaps the answer that baffled Wenger the most was when the German defender said his favourite pet animal was a guinea pig.

The £52 million signing became the first Arsenal player to score on his Premier League debut since Thomas Vermaelen in 2009.

Leicester: Schmeichel; Simpson, Morgan, Maguire, Fuchs; Mahrez, James (Iheanacho, min. 82), Ndidi, Albrighton (Gray, min. 88); Okazaki (Amartey, min. 72), Vardy.

"So I think it's a good buy for Leicester".

"It's an important game for us because afterwards we go away to Stoke and to Liverpool".
