'It was a little kid in a Manchester United shirt, so I think for the kid it is something he will never forget and for me, I repeat when I win they don't mean much, imagine when I lose'.

Wenger added: "We know defensively we can do better but overall we produced a top-quality game".

The Gunners really need to mount a title challenge for the long haul this season.

Lacazette and Kolasinac are the only signings at the Emirates Stadium so far this summer, but Wenger refused to rule out a further addition if the right player becomes available.

All eyes in the Leicester camp, will be on Kelechi Iheanacho, who recently arrived from Manchester City for £25 million.

The footballing world is waiting for the start of the 25th edition of the world's most famous football league - the English Premier League.

"All pre-season he's looked sharp and fit", said Shakespeare, who gave Nigerian striker Kelechi Iheanacho his competitive debut as a late substitute. I've always liked Marko Arnautovic, he's given West Ham problems whenever he's played against them for Stoke and Javier Hernandez is an extremely exciting addition to the side.

Arsenal would hold on to secure an incredible victory in a magnificently entertaining season opener.

"For us Alexis Sanchez is a loss, of course". The bad news was that both Danny Drinkwater and Vicente Iborra will miss out on Friday. Robert Huth, Papy Mendy, and Islam Slimani have all returned to training, which is a great step towards have a fully fit and fighting squad.

Arsenal have won their last three home matches against the Foxes. Arsenal record-signing Alexandre Lacazette got off to a ideal by scoring inside two minutes of kickoff. He scored 129 times in 275 games for Lyon so has a big reputation.

The possibility of a turnaround seemed to be disappearing for Arsenal until Arsene Wenger made an ispired double switch that swung the game back in his side's favour.

But, according to The Independent, Paris Saint-Germain will once again test the resolve of Arsenal and Sanchez by making the significant offer ahead of the new season.
