Arsenal offer Alexis Sanchez mammoth £300000-a-week contract

Vardy laments another late Leicester reverse at Arsenal

The Sun claims Arsenal believe a breakthrough has been made in the club's quest to tie Ozil down to a new £225k-a-week deal, with the World Cup victor reportedly giving the impression that he's ready to put pen to paper.

Having ended months of speculation by signing a new two-year contract, he is looking forwards and says that if the team put on a united front, the fans will fall into line behind them.

The goal also continued Lacazette's phenomenal record in the first game of top-flight seasons over recent years - one he might need to add to after Leicester forwards Shinji Okazaki and Jamie Vardy turned the game on its head.

Leicester made a big splash in the transfer market as well, signing Kelechi Iheanacho from Manchester City.

Arsenal have won 10 successive home games against Leicester, their longest winning streak at home against a particular opponent. Jose Mourinho's side play West Ham at Old Trafford, while Spurs travel to play Newcastle in what is perhaps the most interesting game of the weekend.

Arsenal will get their 2017-18 Premier League season started with a home clash against 2016 champions Leicester City on Friday night.

Tottenham - It looks like a mistake that it hasn't strengthened its squad, though perhaps it still will before the season kicks off. Spurs had a terrific campaign last season and had it been any other season they would have won it.

Arsenal will be down in the fire power as forward Alexis Sanchez is sitting out with an abdominal injury. In the last six or seven years Manchester City didn't buy full-backs.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger expressed "relief" over Olivier Giroud's decision to stay after the France striker earned his side a breathless 4-3 win against Leicester City. They've already got off to a good start with a 1-0 win in the Europa League.

Danny Welbeck did get the Gunner level in the last few seconds of the first half to give them hope of a better second 45.
