Arsenal win seven goal thriller in Premier opening game


Substitute Olivier Giroud headed in a dramatic late winner as Arsenal fought back to beat Leicester City in a thrilling start to the 2017-18 Premier League season.

The Gunners trailed 3-2 with seven minutes to go before Aaron Ramsey and Giroud turned the game in their favour in front of a packed Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal got off to the perfect start to the new season with Lacazette finding the net after just two minutes.

Okazaki leveled the score minutes later, then Leicester’s goal machine from their Premier title season Vardy put them ahead.

Welbeck put Arsenal level in first half extra time.

After the break it was Vardy again in the right place to put Leicester ahead for a second time.

Just when it looked as though Arsenal had run out of ideas Ramsey made it 3-3 to give them hope and Giroud’s late header sent the Gunners fans into ecstasy.
