Wenger: Lacazette Has Gotten Stronger Since He Has Joined Us


The 2017/2018 English #Premier League kicks off today, Friday 11th August, 2017 with the first game - Arsenal vs Leicester City by 7 pm.

The north London side have signed Lacazette to complement Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez and attacking midfielder Mesut Ozil.

"A goal machine", Keown told the Daily Mail when asked about Lacazette.

Two quick goals got us started as newly signed Alexandre Lacazette and Shinji Okazaki scored goals within the first five minutes. 'To come away to the Emirates, score three goals but concede four is disappointing especially as a defender.

Or Jesus to save your season at Man City?

I am not trying to say that the Arsenal defence was not an issue as the Gunners scraped over the line to win the first game of the new Premier League season, because it most certainly was.

Arsenal will be riding on their recent wins in the Community Shield and the FA Cup before that, against Premier League winners Chelsea.

After so much talk of the 25th anniversary of the Premier League's breakaway and all of the core traits marketed as firing the competition, these two teams seemed determined to live up it, as they offered the most breathless and goal-laden start it has ever seen: two goals in four minutes, an terrible lot of pace, and very little defending - especially in the air.

The visitors then took a shock lead as a sloppy pass from Xhaka gifted Leicester possession 30 yards from goal and Jamie Vardy was on hand to turn home a superb Marc Albrighton cross for 1-2 in the 29th minute.

"Why hasn't he just said I'm staying for one more season?"

In stoppage time of the first half, Arsenal played their attractive game to make it 2-2 on the night.

"Wenger has always wanted a striker in the Thierry Henry mould and he may have found that player". This is one team we will be watching very closely this term. "We were quite good last year on corners and with a bit of work we can get that out of our system", added Wenger, who has been given another two years in charge of Arsenal. The Toffees sold Romelu Lukaku for 75 million pounds to Manchester United and have invested the money wisely, bringing in Wayne Rooney, Michael Keane, Davy Klaassen, Jordan Pickford and Sandro Ramirez making them one of the teams to look out for this season.
