Arsenal seeing more of the ball in the early stages of the second period, looking to build on that goal scored late in the opening 45 minutes.

The night started perfectly for Arsenal as new signing Alexandre Lacazette marked his league debut with a goal after just 94 seconds, only for Shinji Okazaki to cancel it out three minutes later.

Instead, Wenger avoided a third consecutive season-opening loss at the start of his new two-year contract.

The English Premier League matches that will be on TV are - Arsenal vs Leicester City, Watford vs Liverpool, Chelsea vs Burnley and Brighton vs Manchester City on Saturday and both the matches on Sunday will be on TV.

Leicester under Craig Shakespeare came back to life last season and finished the season strongly.

The fans at the Emirates were getting their first glimpse of Lacazette in a competitive game and the £46.5 million ($60.3 million) man needed less than two minutes to find the net. The goal came after the Frenchman deftly headed home a Mohamed Elneny centre. Three minutes later, Leicester City equalized.

An error from Cech in the 5 minute allowed Okazaki to equalise for the visitors as a cross was looped into the box by Albrighton, with the Czech global completely running out of his goal as Maguire headed the ball towards goal leaving Okazaki to head in from an open net. The Gunners dominated with Monreal and Kolasinac at what used to be the center back position, with right wingback Hector Bellerin on the left and left winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on the right of a 4-2-4.

It was then Jamie Vardy's turn to shock the Gunners as Marc Albrighton's brilliant cross left the Englishman with an easy tap in to take the lead.

"Insecurity goes quickly through a team and we had many experienced defenders out tonight - Koscielny, Mustafi, Mertesacker".

Even after Danny Welbeck levelled on the stroke of halftime, Vardy restored Leicester's lead after the break.

Arsenal beat Leicester at home, something that doesn't always happen to the Gunners, often starting the season with jitters and losses. Ramsey capitalized with an equalizer in the 83rd minute.

Now with a freakish back four of (from right to left) Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Monreal, Kolasinac and Hector Bellerin, Arsenal pushed for an equaliser, and on 83 minutes it came.
