Wenger was also pleased with new French signing Alexandre Lacazette, who scored after 94 seconds to equal the record for the fastest opening goal of a Premier League season.

Arsenal have won their last 10 Premier League home games against Leicester City.

An error from Cech in the 5 minute allowed Okazaki to equalise for the visitors as a cross was looped into the box by Albrighton, with the Czech worldwide completely running out of his goal as Maguire headed the ball towards goal leaving Okazaki to head in from an open net. Both teams haven't been on the top of their game in the English Premier League but history precedes the Gunners and the Foxes as they play each other to start their Premier League on a good note.

"He doesn't want to leave and I'm happy that he wants to stay". "You know, I must say I opened the door for him at some stage because I know that it's important for him to play". It's not like they are going to sell him for £50m and take £200 of everybody's season tickets because we've sold our best player.

Wenger, who has plenty of attacking options in his squad, added: "It's a long time since we had so much quality".

Last season was by far the most hard of Wenger's 21-year reign, with Arsenal's on-pitch travails exposing him to furious protests from angry fans. "Because one was a corner, one was a goal where we lost the ball in the build-up and the third goal was a corner again".

The Premier League is so special because it is hard to find any other league in the world where you will find a team, which is fighting a gruesome relegation battle on one hand and troubling the top teams on the other, consistently. But there was nothing of the sort here: it was truly end-to-end stuff with plenty of chances, a quick tempo, four first-half goals, three second-half goals and a brilliant Friday night atmosphere at the Emirates.

"I love the man and the player", Wenger told Sky Sports.

'Obviously for the neutral it would've been a great start, just watching it from the outside, ' the former Manchester United striker said.

A crossfield ball found Hector Bellerin on the right, with the full-back playing the ball back to Mohamed Elneny, who floated in a first-time cross.
