'Injured' Sanchez ruled out of start of Arsenal's PL campaign

Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

The new English Premier League season is about to get underway and the first game of the season is between Arsenal and Leicester City.

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.

England striker Jamie Vardy, who was heavily linked with Arsenal 12 months ago, scored a brace either side of a Danny Welbeck leveller that showed Arsenal's rearguard to be equally awful from open play and set-piece situations. With Giroud replacing Holding, Wenger switched the formation from a 3-4-2-1 to a 4-4-2 with Giroud and Lacazette up front.

"He made a decision to stay and it was one of the great days of recent weeks for me".

"I opened the door for him at some stage as I had many strikers and it's important for him to play but I don't want him to go". Overall I must say we kept going and the spirit of the team was absolutely outstanding and overall you could say as well we were punished on every single mistake tonight by a Leicester team who was very efficient going forward.

"It's a long time since I spoke to him". "One was a corner, one on build-up, one on a corner again", he said. "We were quite good past year on corners and overall I believe that with a bit of work we can get that out of the system".

But I think they saw it as their duty to accept it, even though I have a hard time believing that they actually believed me'. The 42-year-old said his captors treated him better after he adopted Islam, giving him clothes, food and medication.

But he drew encouragement from his side's display.

"Honestly, if you have to give your evaluation, it's right not to put Chelsea to be a favourite", said Conte. And, keeping in mind the vast expenditure, great matches and huge disappointments are to come.

Craig Shakespeare's efforts to guide Leicester to stability last season earned him the job on a permanent basis.

Ronald Koeman's Everton have been most heavily mentioned in connection with the £25m-rated 30-year-old, with the likes of West Ham United, Marseille and Lyon also credited with an interest.

The ruthless Jamie Vardy took advantage of Arsenal's shoddy defending twice - he stunned the Gunners with an emphatic kick in the first half and a delightful header in the second. "He came here tonight and got the goals his performance deserved".
