OFF: Leicester's Iheanacho, Musa, Ndidi Ambush Arsenal's Iwobi At Emirates

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.

The Gunners got off to the ideal start, with record-signing Alexandre Lacazette scoring after just 94 seconds, via his his first-ever shot in the Premier League. Arsenal record-signing Alexandre Lacazette got off to a flawless by scoring inside two minutes of kickoff.

"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".

The Gunners look strong as they are coming off the Community Shield win over Chelsea at Wembley while Leicester has also played well in preseason training matches.

Everton are known to in the market for a new striker this summer, and following Arsenal's £52m purchase of Alexandre Lacazette, Giroud was heavily linked with a move to Goodison Park where he would be more likely to be the main striker.

"With Lacazette, it is simple", the French tactician said, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

Facebook discretely fields China photo-sharing app
CEO Mark Zuckerberg has courted Chinese officials for years, and even spent one year learning to speak Mandarin. It was unclear if China's various internet regulators were aware of the app's existence, the Times said.

Leicester have since levelled the scores to 1-1 with Shinji Okazaki scoring just 160 seconds after Arsenal took the lead.

"Insecurity goes quickly through a team and we had many experienced defenders out tonight - Koscielny, Mustafi, Mertesacker".

'A player I am a big fan of, ' is how Jamie Carragher described Olivier Giroud on Friday night. Both teams haven't been on the top of their game in the English Premier League but history precedes the Gunners and the Foxes as they play each other to start their Premier League on a good note.

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

It's the players around him in terms of Arsene Wenger bringing in a better centre forward so he's not the focal point that everyone looks at and says he's not good enough. We were quite good a year ago on corners and overall I believe that with a bit of work we can get that out of the system.

It was a game that Arsenal ought to have won, having dominated proceedings all through the 90 minutes and the added time.
