Arsenal Edge Leicester in 7-Goal Premier League Thriller

Emmanuel Petit Anthony Martial Man Utd

Craig Shakespeare had to watch his side blow two leads in the Premier League opener against Arsenal on Friday.

Super-sub Olivier Giroud struck a late victor as Arsenal came from behind to beat Leicester in an unforgettable opening Premier League match.

ARSENAL'S ALEXANDRE LACAZETTE got his Premier League career off to the flawless start against Leicester at the Emirates this evening.

Jamie Vardy then struck twice either side of Welbeck's equaliser as the Foxes looked set for a first league win over Arsenal since 1983.

USA stocks open slightly higher
London's benchmark FTSE 100 index was down 1.4 percent at the closing bell, also driven lower by losses in the commodity sector. Wilmar International slipped 6.4 per cent or 22 cents to $3.20; Hongkong Land lost 2.1 per cent or 16 U.S. cents to US$7.34.

"Giroud? He's fantastic", Wenger said of the France worldwide, who usually started on the bench last season and had been linked with a move away from The Emirates.

"At one stage I opened the door for him as I knew I had many strikers, and in the end he chose to stay", said Wenger. In the end he made a decision to stay and it was one of the great days of the recent weeks for me.

"Not only as a player, he is a fantastic player, but as well in the group".

However, Wenger insists that Giroud will remain in north London beyond the end of the transfer window despite being given the opportunity to move on and seek more regular football elsewhere.

Federer eases into Rogers Cup semis
The 36th-ranked Schwartzman next faces the victor between seventh-seeded Grigor Dimitrov and Robin Haase . Meanwhile, Roger Federer continued his pursuit of a third Rogers Cup title, but his first in Montreal .

"No. It's a determined no", he said.

"Well if you were a manager and you would be on the bench when you're 3-2 down with 20 minutes to go, and you win 4-3, you're more happy than concerned".

"We had some avoidable goals which we conceded and overall we have to work on that", he said referring to poor marking in the by his team's defence. "We were quite good past year on corners and overall I believe that with a bit of work we can get that out of the system", the French coach added. The Frenchman equaled the record for fastest goal on the opening day of the Premier League, a record he shares with former Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell who did the same against Manchester City in 1994.

"I'm always looking for the positives, we came to the Emirates and the players executed the game plan".

USA dares China, takes naval warships to Chinese waters without permission
USA officials say the military will continue to sail, fly and operate wherever permitted by global law. China has ignored and dismissed the ruling as a sham.

Shakespeare was true to his word and started Riyad Mahrez despite the Algeria global asking to leave the King Power Stadium. That's how it came about but I think it was perhaps too early to celebrate because we didn't know how the match was going to pan out.
