Was last night’s match between Arsenal and Leicester City the best Premier League opener ever?
There have been a few belters over the past 25 years but Friday evening’s clash at the Emirates Stadium was something else.
The Gunners scored two goals in the final seven minutes to turn the game on its head after Leicester had taken a shock 3-2 lead early in the second half. Olivier Giroud’s 85th-minute winner sent relieved Arsenal fans home with smiles on their faces.
Arsene Wenger praised his side’s character after the match but admitted it was concerning to concede three goals at home.
Leicester took the lead twice during the match - at 2-1 and 3-2 - but Arsenal’s substitutes Giroud and Aaron Ramsey ensured it was their team who secured all three points.
Wait, what did Carragher just call Wenger?
Wenger conducted an interview with Sky Sports after the match and there was one very amusing moment that @arseblog picked up on.
Jamie Carragher was in the process of putting a question to Wenger when the former Liverpool defender appeared to call the veteran French manager, wait for it… ‘Arse’.

Twitter found it hilarious
After it was pointed out, other Twitter users couldn’t stop laughing…
Gary Neville's face was a picture
Carragher will be desperately hoping that Wenger didn’t hear his live TV gaffe.
Although by the look on his face, Gary Neville clearly heard it.
