Wenger gives update on Giroud's future at Arsenal after Leicester City victor

Each year, the new season comes with a feeling of a fresh start.

It always looked like the big area of concern for Arsenal pre-match - but looked even worse for their fans when the teamsheet was released.

Arsenal got off to a quick start in this one, with Alexandre Lacazette scoring just a little over a minute into the game to give himself his first-ever Premier League goal of his career.

The first 15 minutes were very lively with both teams having equal chances on goal.

Welbeck - 7. One of the few highlights of the first half. Better when switched to right back. They would look at it and ask why the club are selling him to a Premier League rival.

The Emirates Stadium exploded with joy, but they were sitting down, shaking their heads soon after as a quick corner caught Arsenal out and Shinji Okazaki, of all people, rose to head home the equaliser for the 2015-16 champions.

Vardy was then afforded far too much space by both the Bosnia worldwide and Monreal for Leicester's second, after Holding had failed to block another Albrighton centre.

While Wenger's critics may use it as another stick to beat him with, the tactical errors emphasised why Arsenal should change their zonal marking system to a man-marking system - especially when the height of Per Mertesacker isn't available to them.

It was a recurring concern every time Leicester moved into the final third, with Arsenal's three at the back looking unacquainted.

Having been dropped in favour of Chilean global Alexis Sanchez for much of last season, Giroud continues to make a strong case that he can be an integral part to Arsenal's title challenge this season.

'In my first game as manager of Valencia Lacazette played for Lyon and he scored, ' Neville said on Sky Sports.

He disappointed during his time at Chelsea, but was superb throughout his two-and-a-half years in Italy, providing goals, assists, work-rate, trickery and unbelievable speed.

Tottenham Hotspur, last seasons runner ups have made no new signings as the current boss Mauricio Pochettinho has said that he will emphasise more on the youth and is confident that the current squad will bring them the much-required success in their campaign.

He showed Arsene Wenger once again why it's important not to sell him.

"He doesn't want to leave and I'm happy he wants to stay".
