Arsenal 4 – 3 Leicester City: Arsenal stage epic comeback on opening day of the Premier League [Best Tweets]

The much-awaited Premier League season served a real classic as Arsenal mounted a comeback to beat Leicester City 4-3 at Emirates.

The Premier League season is here, and it’s back with a bang. It was goals galore as Arsenal hosted Leicester City at the Emirates for the opening game. The Gunners came back from behind for an exhilarating 4-3 victory over the Foxes – a feat that will etch itself as perhaps one of the most thrilling season openers ever.

Alexandre Lacazette gave Arsenal the lead with a debut goal within the first two minutes, while Shinji Okazaki drew level just moments later. After Okazaki’s goal, Jamie Vardy scored to put the Foxes up 2-1, following which, a stunned silence enshrouded the Emirates.

Danny Welbeck scored late in the first-half to draw level at 2-2. The tie was broken when Vardy scored just before the hour mark to make it 3-2 as the Leicester fans erupted with happiness. Unfortunately for them, the feeling was short-lived as Aaron Ramsey equalized soon enough, followed by Olivier Giroud scoring the winning goal.

Twitter exploded with a roller-coaster of emotions as the match progressed, and here are some of the best tweets:

Olivier Giroud was hailed as the hero of the night as he scored the winning goal barely minutes before the final whistle. His performances up-front were also quite impressive, and Arsenal’s attack on the whole, was quite brilliant to watch.

Amid the joy, fans were also quick to note how shoddy the defending was for either side.
