But Giroud made his mark on Arsenal's new campaign on Friday as his late header secured a 4-3 win at home over Leicester City, who had led when the forward came off the bench.

HALF TIME: An explosive first half no doubt and while Arsenal fans may not be too happy with the first half scores, they should be happy with their record signing Lacazette who is just the 7th Arsenal player to score on his Premier League debut for the club.

Arsenal continued to dominate possession in the second half, only to concede a another goal in the 55th minute, when Vardy redirected a Riyad Mahrez corner kick past home goalkeeper Petr Cech. After Aaron Ramsey levelled in the 83rd minute, Giroud sealed the three points within two minutes on an evening of thrilling attacks gifted by fragile defending.

And that form continued against the Gunners - the team he came close to joining last summer - capitalising on the vulnerability of Arsenal's back three, Vardy looked back to his best and found the net twice with two great poachers finishes.

"But I haven't been able to score on a consistent basis, which is something I need to be able to do".

The Premier League starts on an explosive note with two goals inside five minutes...

West Ham keeper has black eye on success at Manchester United
For the first time since May of a year ago , Joe Hart will taste Premier League action this weekend. However he revealed that he is not losing sleep over his future, saying , "I don't think about it".

Arsenal had seen nearly 75% of the ball in the first 20 minutes and Welbeck had Arsenal's best chance since Lacazette's opener.

Arsenal scores twice in the final 10 minutes, capped off by Olivier Giroud's victor.

One new recruit, defender Harry Maguire, felt Leicester gave the hosts a run for their money and - despite heading back to the east midlands with nothing to show for it - believes the display will hold them in good stead.

If an investigation begins, the USA government could seek remedies either through the World Trade Organization or outside of it. The officials said that matter, and the trade issue, are not linked.

For most of the opening 83 minutes it looked like Arsenal would start up the season with their now customary demoralizing defeat.

The substitutions nearly paid off as Ramsey was so close to restoring parity for the Gunners with his first touch, heading wide Hector Bellerin's cross from the left flank in the 68th minute. With no European football this year, Leicester can focus on the Premier League, but they've got a tough task in front of them to start the year at Arsenal. And it's a win that'll leave those Arsenal supporters hoping, once again, that things will be different this year after all.
