For those of you who are not into the English Premier League or soccer, I recommend you start watching the EPL.

Wenger, who signed a new two-year deal at the club, insists the victory at Wembley has strengthened the confidence in his squad but has warned against complacency when they take on Leicester after a number of opening day set-backs in recent seasons. "They have been quite spectacular in the transfer market, Manchester United as well". We'll take it step by step and be humble.

The France striker netted as Rennes were beaten 2-0 a year later and, although Lorient shackled him in 2015, the 26-year-old punished Nancy with a hat-trick last term. Wenger's extended contract did not please every Arsenal fan, so there is added pressure to deliver.

"At some stage, the players came to see me and said, 'What's going on boss?'"

Giroud has scored seven Premier League goals as a substitute since August 2016, three more than any other player in the division.

Munititions stockpile would pitch Alexis Sanchez to Paris Saint-Germain "tomorrow" yet will be hesitant to lose the Chilean genius to Manchester City, as per Paul Merson. Despite being held in the box, Giroud got up and powered a header just over the bar, unleashing a roar at the Emirates from fans who were expecting the worst as Leicester's lead carried on into the match.

"Obviously I knew that I was going to have a chance so we tried to push".

Wantaway midfielder Riyad Mahrez is expected to start for Leicester, despite publicly expressing his desire to leave the club at the end of last season. He is still on the look-out for one more attacking player, although any hopes of recruiting either Gareth Bale or Ivan Perisic are fading.

Since Alex Ferguson retired after the 2013 title win United have not finished in the top three but some serious investment in new players gives manager Jose Mourinho, starting his second season at the club, the sense that things are coming together.

"I have plenty of uncertainties about the players who didn't play against Chelsea", he said.

On its surface, Liverpool vs Watford does not sound like a marquee matchup, but if you like goals, this is certainly a game that will catch your eye.

"The Premier League is the most competitive league in the world and Arsenal are one of the best clubs in it, year after year they've shown their consistency", said Shakespeare.
