Arsene Wenger challenges Alexandre Lacazette to emulate former Man United star

Arsenal came out the second half still struggling and Leicester scored their second goal from a corner to make it 2-3 in the 56th minute.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed Olivier Giroud turned down the chance to leave the club during the summer transfer window.

"I felt that to lose tonight would have been awful for us because we had such good preparation and to sit there in the morning and think we had lost at home would have been bad", he said. At one stage I opened the door for him to go as I knew I had many strikers, and in the end he chose to stay.

"I know that it's important for him to play".

"I feel as well that the goals we conceded, we can work together to get rid of that". "If you look at that from a neutral point, for a first game it was a top-quality game". "It was one of the great days".

Instead, they chose to make it hard for themselves again, like they so often do, and as a result, we got one of the games of the season in the first match of the new campaign. We love him and in the end he chose to stay.

40 killed in Nepal floods, landslides
The Meteorological Forecasting Division has forecast moderate to heavy rains to continue across the country for the next few days. Floods and landslides triggered by incessant rains have killed 40 persons in Nepal, the Ministry of Home Affairs said on Sunday.

Okazaki, who headed home by the far post from a short corner, was pleased he scored on opening night but was not about to get carried away.

After enduring a troubled campaign marred by fan protests against him last season, Wenger desperately needs a strong start this term.

In the 67th minute Giroud and Ramsey were brought on for Elneny and Holding, and those men would help turn the tide in Arsenal's favor. As a game is in 90, that would guarantee you a goal.

A predictable Arsenal implosion followed, with Shinji Okazaki and Jamie Vardy putting Leicester in front.

'We have many games and hopefully I can give a good number to all the strikers. We had a lot of experienced defenders out injured for the game.

The Serie A side have now said they will not return with an improvement on the offer that was rejected and, while he remains a Leicester player, Shakespeare is more than happy to utilise the 2016 PFA Player of the Year.
