Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger, was full of praise for his players, after they fought to come from behind twice, to record a 4-3 win over Leicester City in the first fixture of the new Premier League season.
Two late goals from Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud, brought the Gunners back from a one-goal deficit in the final 10 minutes.
“Overall I must say we kept going and the spirit of the team was absolutely outstanding and overall you could say as well we were punished on every single mistake tonight by a Leicester team who was very efficient going forward.” Wenger said.
“And you could see that this team has quality and is used to playing together, but [we had] 70 per cent possession with 27 shots on goal.
“Leicester had three shots on target and scored three goals, so that shows you how efficient they were, but overall I must say if you look at that from a neutral point of view, for the first game it was a top-quality match.
“You want the Premier League to be the best league in the world and I think it has to produce this kind of game to produce interest and quality.
“Even people will say we conceded three goals, yes, but we scored four as well and the game was of quality.”
