The Gunners were set to come out fighting in the second period and did exactly that with several chances including Sead Kolašinac's saved effort.

It looked to be enough for the Foxes for long spells, but two substitutes hauled the Gunners back from the brink.

Substitute Aaron Ramsey rifled home to level before Giroud - introduced alongside the Wales global - headed in an 85th-minute victor to settle a breathless encounter in Arsenal's favour.

Arsenal record-signing Alexandre Lacazette got off to a ideal by scoring inside two minutes of kickoff.

Kevin Campbell's strike for Arsenal vs Manchester City (1994-95) is now third, coming after two minutes and one second. Lacazette stood and soaked up the adulation of his new supporters.

Within 3 minutes Leicester were level. But the 31-year-old Shinji Okazaki was quick to even the score within minutes with a timely assist from Leicester's new signing Harry Maguire. The England striker had timed his run brilliantly and thudded home an emphatic finish.

As Arsenal stepped off the team bus at the Emirates they were greeted by the sight of Filbert waiting and ready to greet them with his a soft handshake.

Mascots are weird. Their function is hard to describe, the human inside is certainly a "character" and they do inexplicable things with regularity.

Alexandre Lacazette heads in the opening goal of the season.

Vardy thought he was spoiling the Emirates Stadium party with his second goal in the 56th minute as groans were heard across North London. It's opening day, and while that particular phrase probably means more to baseball fans, the first day of a season is always a good day. Manager Arsene Wenger looked to the bench in an attempt to liven his side up, with Giroud and Ramsey introduced.

Because the Dream Team game - the UK's biggest fantasy football game - is back and better than ever this season. Arsenal switched the ball from left-to-right and Hector Bellerin cut the ball back to the supporting Mohamed Elneny who chipped the ball into the box first time for Lacazette to head into the left-hand corner from six yards out.

The manner of the victory makes it huge for Arsenal.

A lot has changed since these two sides last met in April when Arsenal snatched a late slim 1-0 win gifted the Gunners courtesy of an own goal by Robert Huth.
