Wenger gives update on Giroud's future at Arsenal after Leicester City victor

Pep Guardiola is more than happy with how City are shaping up ahead of the trip

But Leicester, which so astonishingly won the league in 2016, couldn't hold on for its first win at Arsenal since 1973.

(Which famously cost us at the start of previous year with Etienne Capoue).

"What would it mean for me to be the Premier League champion?"

Managing expectations can be a tricky thing in the world of professional football.

"If we cannot strengthen the team in these areas we have players that we can trust".

With what will surely be the first of many Lacazette has already got his first Arsenal goal in his first Premier League outing, joining Freddie Ljungberg, Emmanuel Adebayor, Samir Nasri and Thomas Vermaelen in doing so in the Wenger era. These guys are proven achievers and will go to any level to see their side come out victorious.

Brighton and Hove Albion chairman Tony Bloom speaks to the press ahead of the new premier league season on 10 August 2017.

"We're not going to be too down-hearted". Perhaps Chelsea's Antonio Conte may be the next manager to join this unflattering list. Not only as a player, he's a fantastic player but as well in the group.

There have been five major new signings in Ederson, Benjamin Mendy, Kyle Walker, Bernardo Silva and Danilo, and further additions have not been ruled out. It's obvious that Guardiola wasn't comfortable with his defence last season given that the majority of his acquisitions have been in that department. You just wonder though, if they've solved all of their problems in attack.

"Obviously I knew that I was going to have a chance so we tried to push", he said. He will be hoping to continue that trend with this Manchester United side. Coupled with a manager with a proven track record in Barcelona, Bayern Munich and in the UEFA Champions League, bookmakers, the media and even the fans have tipped Manchester City as favourites to lift the Premier League trophy this season.

"We are in a position to do quality work better than we did in the first season, so I am convinced that our second season, in terms of the quality of our team, is going to be better".

Arsenal have brought in Alexander Lacazette to bolster their frontline, but are still not certain if Alexis Sanchez will remain with them. Instead, Wenger avoided a third consecutive season-opening loss at the start of his new two-year contract. "The game was 1-1, he scored the winning goal and everything was taken in his stride". "A lot of the stuff, people never get to hear about - and rightly so". You write them off at your own peril.

Swansea's purchase of Roque Mesa for $14 million looks a bargain for a player whose slick passing stood out for Las Palmas last season.

Romelu Lukaku ended up at Manchester United for $99.18 million, a move that pushed Jose Mourinho's alternative targets Alexandre Lacazette and Alvaro Morata towards Arsenal and Chelsea respectively. However, they failed to build on that momentum in the subsequent season.
