Alexandre Lacazette scores just minutes into his Arsenal debut

Arsenal host Leicester City on Friday night, marking the first time in league history the season's first match won't be played on a Saturday.

But Manager Arsene Wenger made a double substitution, bringing in Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud after 67 minutes of play, and in the 83rd and 85th minute, both players scored to hand Arsenal the win.

The north London side were level on the stroke of half-time thanks to Danny Welbeck's finish to give Arsenal a platform to kick on and win the top-flight clash.

But Leicester, which so astonishingly won the league in 2016, couldn't hold on for its first win at Arsenal since 1973.

The first game of the season already looks like a contender for game of the season. Despite being linked with a number of high-profile moves in the summer transfer window, the Gunners only acquired two players: forward Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon and fullback Sead Kolasinac from Schalke.

The 26-year-old France worldwide boasted a goal every 86 minutes in Ligue 1 for Lyon last season and, after forking out £45million, Wenger believes Lacazette can be just as deadly in England.

The £52 million signing became the first Arsenal player to score on his Premier League debut since Thomas Vermaelen in 2009.

"The Premier League is the most competitive league in the world and Arsenal are one of the best clubs in it, year after year they've shown their consistency", he said.

The way they ruthlessly pounced on Arsenal mistakes was highlighted by their second via a Albrighton cross for Vardy to tap home at the back post.

Wenger said he gave Giroud the option to leave for another club this summer in search of more regular playing time but was thrilled when the striker chose to stay.

"But we're not going to be too downhearted".

The French worldwide also showed plenty of times that he is more than capable of dealing with the physical demands of the English game.

"But at some stage I opened the door for him because I knew that I had many strikers".

Petr Cech was largely at fault, coming off his line but getting nowhere near Marc Albrighton's deep cross as Foxes debutant Harry Maguire headed back across goal for Okazaki to nod in.

Slack zonal marking allowed Jamie Vardy to make it 3-2.
