Arsenal fear superstar could revive attempts to leave this month

Giroud's clever header in the 85th minute secured the points after Lacazette had taken just 94 seconds to make his mark with a header from Mohamed Elneny's curling cross, equalling the record for the fastest opening goal in a Premier League season.

Their first league game has regularly been painful for the Gunners, with just one win from their previous seven.

Record signing Alexander Lacazette opened his account within two minutes of the kick-off, but the home side's lead was nearly immediately rubbed out as Shinji Okazaki equalised minutes later before Jamie Vardy put the visitors in front after half an hour. Are they going to be more adventurous?

Granit Xhaka's sloppy pass was picked up by Albrighton and he forged down the left flank before bending a sublime cross into the danger area that Vardy converted.

The Premier League returns with Arsenal hosting Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium.

The England striker was largely unmarked as he rose to meet Riyad Mahrez's header and directed it inside the back post to put Leicester ahead 3-2. Is he going to do the job of Shinji Okazaki?

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is hoping record signing Alexandre Lacazette can follow in the footsteps of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and hit the ground running in the Premier League.

Honestly, you could not have asked for more to open the Premier League season for the 2017-18 campaign.

Pentagon Issues Guidance on Unauthorized Drone Operations Near Military Installations
That announcement didn't say anything about the military reserving the right to obliterate or intercept drones, however. Until now, the use of civilian or commercial drones over no-fly zones only resulted in fines and/or jail time.

Meanwhile, Leicester City boss Craig Shakespeare has a few pressing injury concerns to deal with as well and he will be travelling to North London without Danny Drinkwater, Vincent Iborra and Robert Huth.

It's safe to say we all know about Leicester's counter attacking capability and it was a case of new season, same story for the east Midlands club.

It could be a very big second half for Arsenal after levelling it late on.

"Obviously, there're players behind him who have to do the legwork but, as far as I'm concerned, his job is to create".

Maduro speaks before the new constituent assembly
The body has usurped the powers of the national assembly, and is tasked with rewriting the south American country's constitution. More than 125 people have died in violence since the opposition began a sustained wave of protests in April.

Arsenal were caught in possession on the left once again minutes later and Okazaki nearly doubled his tally but headed narrowly wide.

Welbeck found himself in space and passed to Hector Bellerin whose shot was stopped by Schmeichel. Obviously, we'd love to see a continuation of what we saw against Chelsea, with perhaps a bit more finishing capabilities.
