Manchester City favored for title, Kane for top scorer on EPL odds

At the other end of the player scale, it takes Jordan Ibe nearly 14 games of playing time to buy a typical place in Bournemouth.

Arsenal hope Lacazette will help them return to the top four of the Premier League table and qualify for the UEFA Champions League - something they missed out on last season for the first time since Arsene Wenger took over as manager in 1996.

Few clubs will be able to call upon a forward with his experience and attributes as a Plan B this season. We've been courageous to the end and thank God we won the game.

Manchester United's transfer business is "75 percent" complete but the club is still looking for a winger, manager Jose Mourinho said ahead of their Premier League opener against West Ham on Sunday.

With just seven minutes to go, and shortly after a very good appeal for handball against Mesut Ozil, Ramsey was left free at the far post and made no mistake, putting Arsenal on level terms again.

Vardy bagged his brace when he capitalised on another piece of poor defending from the home side to fire Leicester into the lead in the 56th minute to make the scores 3-2.

Asked what his message will be to his players this season, Hughton said: "Have no fear".

Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare also talking to Sky Sports: "We spoke about being compact and being a threat with the pace of Vardy".

Aaron Ramsey equalised in the 83rd minute and two minutes later substitute Giroud rose highest to head home via the woodwork.

"I have conditions to deliver a better team than I did in the first season".

"They were hard moments when we were 2-3 down but we managed to get out of that and found two goals, which was great to see".

The Foxes finished 12th previous year, and they're hoping for better this time around. Arsenal and Everton are in the Europa League, so they have to play on Thursdays.

Dare we say Giroud has become one of the Prem's most clinical finishers?

"It's fantastic. I opened the door for him at some stage because I know it's important for him to play, but I don't want to him to go", Wenger said. "We were quite good past year on corners and overall I believe that with a bit of work we can get that out of the system", the French coach added.
