Arsenal vs Leicester City, Premier League: live score updates

The opening fixture of the 2017-18 Premier League season was a frantic encounter against Leicester City for Arsenal at the Emirates, a tie which the Gunners ultimately emerged victorious after a header from Olivier Giroud five minutes from time finalised a 4-3 win.

The English Premier League is going to be back with a bang as Arsenal take on Leicester City in the opening match tonight.

"I feel as well that the goals we conceded we can work to get rid of that because one was a corner, one was a ball we lost in the build-up and the third goal was on a corner again so we conceded two goals from corners".

Giroud had been heavily linked with a £20million switch to Everton following Arsenal's club-record deal for Alexandre Lacazette.

With 65 minutes on the clock Wenger turned to Ramsey and Giroud, the former almost making an instant impact by narrowly missing the target when getting on the end of a left-sided cross.

"It's a long time I didn't speak to Nasser, because it's certainly very busy to complete the transfer of Neymar", Wenger told a press conference at Arsenal's London Colney base.

Even after Danny Welbeck levelled on the stroke of halftime, Vardy restored Leicester's lead after the break.

All of the top six can lay claim to that crown as each have the pieces to score ad nauseam on any given day, against any given team.

He added: "There is no chance he could go before the window closes".

Ahead of the first game, Wenger was asked if this would be his most difficult season and responded in agreement, praising the work his side's main rivals have done with their transfers. Giroud remains the savior. But in the recent run for the Gunners, that type of thing hasn't meant much. They replaced Mohammed Elneny, who had assisted Lacazette to head in the first goal and Rob Holding.

"I can't tell you that at the moment", said the Frenchman. "However, just to remind you we have 33 players and they are all good players".

Unfortunately, Arsenal will be missing star player Alexis Sanchez to injury and Leicester will be missing summer signing Iborra to a groin injury during training for the upcoming season.
