Premier League Opener: Arsenal Edge City In Seven-Goal Thriller

Manchester United reject Tottenham bid for Anthony Martial on the eve of Premier League opener Premier League Club Bid For Anthony Martial

"We are well prepared and ready for a fight, and of course ambitious as well", Wenger said what he always says.

Have you signed up to play in our fantasy football league?

Unfortunately, the records show that Arsenal have won just one of their opening day fixtures in seven seasons.

Still, with no end in sight to the Ozil and Alexis Sanchez contract saga, how long will it be before a shock defeat, which this easily could have been, will force the "Wenger Out" banners to appear once again? The goal I'm sure changed Wenger's half-time talks. Having the tall and physical stature of Giroud to win aerial duels and set Lacazette free could be the decider in this match.

Olivier Giroud stepped off the bench to seal the victory and Lacazette admits it was a great experience to play at the Emirates.

"Lyon is a special place in France, as they have their own mentality". Late Welsh equalizers and meaty French foreheads somehow have Arsenal at the top of the league.

Arsenal aren't the only team to strengthen their attacking options this window, though, as Manchester United signed Romelu Lukaku and Chelsea brought in Alvaro Morata, while Manchester City have a handful of new signings.

"Yes. Because look at what City have done". Diego Costa is still there, despite all the rumours, but those could return to unsettle the dressing room.

Stoke aren't the most defensive of teams, but they're certainly one of the most physical. In the middle of the transfer market it's hard to predict. "It looks like everywhere there is many, many players and a bit of congestion at the moment everywhere". The forward bullied Maguire in a standing battle from a corner, got his head to the ball first and arrowed it off the crossbar, beyond Schmeichel.

Much of Leicester's surprise title win two seasons ago was down to the form of N'Golo Kante, Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy.

This Arsenal side has a true never say die attitude.

"You know when you have good players that there might be interest from other clubs but I wouldn't sleep at night if all the scenarios that you (the media) put to me happened. We have plenty of the same type of players".
