`Injured` Sanchez ruled out of start of Arsenal's PL campaign

`Injured` Sanchez ruled out of start of Arsenal's PL campaign

After nearly 30 minutes being a goal down, the Gunners look destined for an opening day defeat but their so often hero, Aaron Ramsey, who came on a second half substitute, drilled the ball past the goalkeeper after showing some excellent control.

Leicester: Schmeichel; Simpson, Morgan, Maguire, Fuchs; Mahrez, James (Iheanacho, min. 82), Ndidi, Albrighton (Gray, min. 88); Okazaki (Amartey, min. 72), Vardy. He then scored again in the 56th minute to restore a 3-2 lead for the Foxes. 3-3, min. 83, Ramsey.

Arsene Wenger chose to bypass his team's defensive difficulties by not playing any center backs for the final 23 minutes as Arsenal rallied for an absurd 4-3 victory over Leicester City in the league's first ever opening night on a Friday.

Jamie Vardy put the visitors ahead just before the half hour, darting into the box to rifle another fine Albrighton cross past Cech after the winger had pounced on a poor square ball from Arsenal midfielder Mezut Ozil.

The Premier League debut of Lacazette should help offset Arsenal's loss of Alexis Sanchez, who will not face Leicester because of an abdominal strain.

Within 3 minutes Leicester were level.

The Gunners went into this tie knowing that their hard opening start to the season - they have away games against Stoke, Liverpool and Chelsea to start the season - demanded that they win against a Leicester side that had spent heavily over the summer, with striker Kelechi Iheanacho coming in from Manchester City for a reported fee of £25m.

Mahomes debuts for Chiefs at Arrowhead
Mahomes was awarded the third quarter as he was listed as the third-string quarterback on the team's initial depth chart. Well, it was a good start to this rebuilding season for their first-round draft picks, Reuben Foster and Solomon Thomas.

Oh Premier League football, we've missed you very much.

Arsenal had seen nearly 75% of the ball in the first 20 minutes and Welbeck had Arsenal's best chance since Lacazette's opener.

Arsenal regained their footing and Welbeck had a number of chances go missing, first seeing his shot blocked after a fine one-two with Elneny, before showing good control to take the ball to the endline, but his cut-back pass could not find anyone.

However, Arsenal's makeshift back three of Sead Kolasinac, Nacho Monreal and Rob Holding failed to stop Shinji Okazaki equalising just two minutes later.

"It's impossible to keep them happy when strikers don't play".
