Sanchez out of opener with abdominal strain

Although the Frenchman has only successfully played in Ligue 1 and the Europa League, if he can give Arsenal a cutting edge with his goals they will be a tough outlet to beat. We lost the ball for the second goal and lacked some experience.

Arsenal looked headed for another dismal Opening Day when they went behind in the first half. Jorgensen had eleven assists in the Eredivisie last year to go with his twenty-six goals. They have been quite spectacular in the transfer market.

'We have plenty of the same type of player'.

Chile international Alexis Sanchez has been ruled out with an abdominal strain. Welcome back Premier League. we missed you. The home fans then endured the nervous wait for the late heroics, time largely passed by watching Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain fling hopeful shots at the goal. "The biggest worry is Manchester City and that's the problem", Merson said. He could've done better to prevent Leicester's first and third goals but he did just enough at the end to keep us ahead.

Stewart Robson examines Arsenal's projected lineup and explains why he believes the Gunners will be back to their best.

Arsenal's defence, though, was still on its summer break.

Meanwhile, Newcastle United also make their return to the Premier League, replacing their bitter, local rivals, Sunderland.

Le Prof' - speaking in an interview via Arsenal's official website - began by saying that he actually never wanted the hitman to depart this summer as he knows how 'important' he is to the club's success. Leicester, on the other hand, will be hoping to revive their magical 2015-2016 season, unfortunately in the presence of a rather frustrated Riyadh Mahrez.

With the injured Alexis Sanchez looking on from the stands, Arsenal took the lead inside two minutes as Mohamed Elneny's cross to the centre of the box found Lacazette, who flicked a header inside the post. There was a lifeline for Wenger before half-time when Welbeck met Sead Kolasinac's cross to tap in an equaliser.

And, despite playing the joint most pre-season games (8), West Bromwich Albion's two wins gives them a 25% win rate.

Mauricio Pellegrino takes over from Claude Puel at Southampton, while Craig Shakespeare is now the permanent manager of Leicester City.

"At some stage it didn't look like that, no. 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", Wenger said after the win, as quoted on Arsenal's official site.
