The English Premier League was ushered in properly by Arsenal and Leicester in a thrilling 7 goal match that had Arsenal win their first Premier League fixture against Leicester by 4 goals to 3.

Arsenal staged a stunning comeback as Olivier Giroud scored an 85th-minute winner to inflict Leicester City to defeat in a breath-taking contest to welcome the new Premier League season. Alexandre Lacazette gave the Gunners the lead after just two minutes, nodding in from Mohamed Elneny's cross but after Riyad Mahrez went close, Shinji Okazaki equalized with a header of his on following Harry Maguire's sublime cut-back after five minutes.

Jamie Vardy capitalized on more uncertain defending to tap Leicester in front, Danny Welbeck leveled on the stroke of half-time, but the England striker was on hand to nod in from Mahrez's corner.
