There could be a female manager in EPL soon, feels Arsene Wenger

"He made a decision to stay and it was one of the great days of recent weeks for me".

"At one stage I opened the door for him as I knew I had many strikers, and in the end he made a decision to stay", Wenger told BBC.

"I hope Arsenal stay strong and say "we don't need your money, we need you here to get us back where we want to be and then you can go on a free".

Wenger was then pressed by fellow panellist Gary Lineker whether he genuinely did not know until the latter stage of the season whether he knew he would be staying or not, and added: "No".

"I prefer to be on the pitch as much as I can but I want to help the team reach the targets", he said.

They've spent big on some quality additions to the squad but are looking increasingly likely to lose Riyad Mahrez. Buckets of goals, wild defensive irresponsibility, Arsenal frailty and Arsenal fortitude (apparently it's a thing) - we feel confident saying it was the most entertaining match of the season so far.

There was still plenty to do, but somehow Lacazette found the pace and the direction to plant a header into the bottom corner, with not even two minutes showing up yet on the clock.

"We haven't been able to beat them yet but there's always a first time and it would be nice to think it would be Friday night".


"With Lacazette it is simple", Wenger said.

Shinji Okazaki struck minutes after kickoff but Leicester City went down 4-3 at the hands of Arsenal as the new Premier League season got under way on Friday.

Jamie Vardy scored to put Leicester ahead just before the half-four mark after a cross from Marc Albrighton, while the awful Leicester centre-back (at least on this day) allowed Danny Welbeck to equalize.

Mahrez saw an effort tipped over by Cech as Leicester looked to regain their advantage - something they did from the resulting corner as Vardy, completely unmarked, headed home the Algerian's set-piece.

But the home side's pressure in the final half hour turned the game back their way and Ramsey equalised with a shot from close range with seven minutes remaining.

However, Arsenal's fans' joy was short-lived. Arsenal also defeated Chelsea at Wembley for the FA Cup three months ago.

"In France, he scored a goal every 80 minutes. Mesut Ozil. we have plenty of the same type of players".
