Instead, they chose to make it hard for themselves again, like they so often do, and as a result, we got one of the games of the season in the first match of the new campaign.

Arsenal plays Leicester at home on Friday in the opening game of the league season.

Wenger has revealed how uncertainty over his future last season created a "lack of clarity in the dressing room" and saw players asking him what was going on.

It seemed like both teams were itching to get on the pitch to score goals.

The Gunners went behind twice and only led the game for less than ten minutes despite Alexandre Lacazette putting his new side a goal up early on.

The ideal way to start a new Premier League season is with a 7-goal thriller, and that's exactly what Arsenal and Leicester City provided, including lead changes, supersubs and late drama.

"We had some avoidable goals which we conceded and overall we have to work on that".

Leicester have yet to beat the Gunners in the Premier League era with their last league win coming in 1983. They would look at it and ask why the club are selling him to a Premier League rival.

Mahrez did exactly that on 54 minutes from a corner after he himself challenged Cech's handling with a shot, and Vardy was again unchallenged as he rose easily to glance the ball in.

It took as little time for Leicester to quell any growing home optimism from that, as Harry Maguire headed a Marc Albrighton cross back across goal for Shinji Okazaki to then nod in himself from just yards.

After being knocked down, Leicester got right back up with a second Vardy goal to take the 3-2 lead.

Over 80 minutes down and Leicester leading by a goal, it looked as if Arsenal was facing a crushing defeat, but Aaron Ramsey's 84th minute goal spun the mood of the stadium on its head. Arsenal will today host erstwhile champions, Leicester City in a first-of-its-kind Friday kick-off.

"They are not anxious about the money because they aren't the ones getting it". Having ended months of speculation by signing a new two-year contract, Wenger believes if his players put on a united front, the exasperated fans will fall into line behind them.
