Full time at the Emirates: Arsenal 4-3 Leicester City

46 min: Play resumes with no changes in personnel on either side. I thought Rob Holding might get hooked, as he’s looked the most uncomfortable in an Arsenal back three that struggled collectively on the back foot throughout the first half.

They have not been helped by Petr Cech, who’s also looked panic-stricken at times. Then again, playing behind a defence that poorly organised, he can probably be excused for the occasional flap.

…Its half time, Arsenal 2- Leicester 2

The Premier League has got off to a lively start, with the players trooping off after a massively entertaining 45 minutes of football.

Alexandre Lacazette opened the scoring after just two minutes, before Shinji Okazaki equalised for Leicester and Jamie Vardy put them ahead.

Danny Welbeck leveled proceedings deep in added time, scrambling the ball home from close range after it had been squared to him by Sead Kolasinac.

It was scruffy end to a sublime move in which Arsenal’s players tippy-tapped their way through the Leicester defence with laser-like speed and precision.

So, It’s all square again into the half time as Danny Welbeck scuffs home from about four yards after some delightfully intricate play by assorted Arsenal players in the Leciester penalty area.
