Jamie Vardy then struck twice, either side of a Danny Welbeck equaliser, as the 2015/16 champions looked for a first league win over Arsenal since 1983.
Now with a weird back four of (from right to left) Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Monreal, Kolasinac and Hector Bellerin, Arsenal pushed for an equaliser, and on 83 minutes it came.
Groans could be heard around the Emirates soon after when Okazaki glanced a header wide, but those groans turned into cheers on the brink of half time as Welbeck rolled home after being picked out by Kolasinac alongside him.

The first match of the 2017-2018 season in the Premier League was 100% successful. "It was one of the great days. Obviously we can build on it from there". They have won only once in their last seven opening-day games - a 2-1 victory against Crystal Palace in 2014 - and have not lost three consecutive opening-day games since 1960.
Campbell and Steve Bould were on target when George Graham's side suffered a 4-2 home defeat to Norwich, an inauspicious maiden outing in the initial Premier League season. Late Welsh equalizers and meaty French foreheads somehow have Arsenal at the top of the league. "First game of the season we played a classic, so for everybody at home it will have been incredible to watch". "Tonight we needed this win and everyone knows the first game is important for the confidence".
He's good enough to do that job of a second striker; what Dzeko did for Man City for two or three years when they were winning titles: you had Aguero as the number one man but he played a huge role. During most of the game, the team's defence left much to be desired - that Vardy managed get past six defenders to score his second goal is testament to that.
"Once again, we had to come back and the team showed it was very well prepared because it could cope with the unpleasant situation", said Cech.
