The ideal way to start a new Premier League season is with a 7-goal thriller, and that's exactly what Arsenal and Leicester City provided, including lead changes, supersubs and late drama.

However, speaking on The Debate, Merson insists the Gunners could change their stance if it was the Ligue 1 champions that came calling.

Many fans congratulated the Arsenal star on his new tattoo, who had earlier inked the words "Beautiful, Blessed, Strong, Intelligent" in sanskrit on his right wrist.

The Chile global had rejected an initial offer believed to be worth £225,000-a-week but the Gunners now plan to make Sanchez the highest paid player in the Premier League. Where do you go?'

It was also notable that Lacazette twice battled back to counter-press and win possession quickly, denying Leicester one of their famous counter-attacks and setting up a quick Arsenal attack at the same time.

Despite the admission of their manager, Arsenal supporters would like to see Mahrez put on the team's jersey, with some questioning why Wenger feels the aforementioned Wilshere would do a better job on the flanks than a proven wide-forward in Mahrez.

"I just want to make sure that the guy that comes in after me is in a condition that he could work well". The Toffees sold Romelu Lukaku for 75 million pounds to Manchester United and have invested the money wisely, bringing in Wayne Rooney, Michael Keane, Davy Klaassen, Jordan Pickford and Sandro Ramirez making them one of the teams to look out for this season.

'For us it was a bit disappointing with the goals that we've let in and we shouldn't really be conceding in that way, but I think we showed great determination and great togetherness to get back into the game and we won it towards the end of the game.

"The problem if he does stay is that he's only staying for six months really".

Harry Maguire does make his first league appearance, however, coming in for Robert Huth who is still recovering from an ankle injury of his own. He was showing his frustrations and it didn't look good.

"I'm convinced that (it) will happen soon", Wenger said when asked about the likelihood of a woman taking over a team in one of England's top two divisions.

Craig Shakespeare's side boasted numerous players, and characteristics, that saw them shock the world to win the title in 2015/16.

"He's going to be good enough this season to get a contract elsewhere. That's not Sanchez though, he's world class".
