You surely did not expect Arsenal to make this opening Premier League game against Leicester City an easy watch for us hopeful Gooners did you? If so you would have been disappointed but for anyone else it was an absolue thriller and in the end it was a happy night because the Arsenal managed to win.
We had to claw it from the brink of disaster though, as with les than 10 minutes on the clock we needed two goals to get the three points, and we got them thanks to the subs. Aaron Ramsey latched on to a fantastic raking pass from Xhaka to fire a bullet finish past Schmeichel before the big man Olivier Giroud did another super show off the bench to plant a brilliant header off the bar and in to stun the visitors.
The Foxes were ahead twice despit Lacazette scoring just two minutes into his EPL debut, becaue as well as we played in midfield and attack the defence was shaky, with an unfamiliar trio of Holding, Monreal and Kolasinac drafted in. They were all over the place to let Okazaki level straight away and then Vardy to put them ahead.
Our second goal was vital as it came on the stroke of half time with a great slick passing move finished by Welbeck and it looked to have done the trick as we looked the most likely after the break but once again that man Vardy punished our sloppiness at the back.
It looked bad for quite a while but Arsenal did come good and we broke the opening day run. Phew!
