Alexis Sanchez to miss start of season for Arsenal

Arsene Wenger: Injured Sanchez will miss Leicester game... we are not open to offers for him

As Arsenal fans went berserk, Lacazette's celebration was fitting as he simply stood in place with his arms outstretch and a beaming smile while his teammates mobbed him just left of the penalty spot.

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.

Despite a Danny Wellbeck leveller on the stroke of halftime, the Emirates Stadium crowd was growing increasingly anxious and, when Vardy scored his second with 40 minutes to play, they must have feared the worst.

Giroud then sent the previously despondent Arsenal fans wild when he headed the victor from a corner, Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel only managing to turn the ball onto the underside of the bar before it bounced over the line.

They have won trophies in each of their last two competitive games, beating Chelsea in the FA Cup final last season then in the season opening Community Shield at Wembley.

The Frenchman admitted he was relieved Arsenal managed to avoid an embarrassing opening day defeat.




'If you look across the world of football this is a plum position, people want to be manager of Arsenal. "We had some avoidable goals which we conceded and overall we have to work on that". "We kept going and the spirit of the team was absolutely outstanding", he said.

However, it was a very mixed bag in terms of their players' performances.

"It's impossible to keep them happy when strikers don't play".

"He's a fantastic guy and he's committed. I know how important he is not only as a player but also in the group". "I opened the door for him, because I knew we had many strikers, but he's really loved here and he made a decision to stay".

"Previously in the Premier League we've not got off to the best of starts, so it meant a lot for us to get a good start and get three points today".
