The Premier League returned on Friday night, with Arsenal and Leicester City serving up an absolutely thrilling encounter at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners came from 2-1 and 3-2 down to run out 4-3 winners thanks to late goals from two of Arsene Wenger's three substitutions, Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud.

Arsenal's record signing Alexandre Lacazette equalled the record for the quickest Premier League opening day goal, but the club's other summer signing also had some bright moments.

In what must be considered the bargain of the window so far, Sead Kolasinac arrived in north London from Schalke on a free transfer back in June.

The Bosnian looked good in pre-season, he scored in the Community Shield win over Chelsea, and in the heat of the battle against Leicester, he produced a piece of pure magic.

Kolasinac produces amazing skill

In stoppage time, Leicester were blasting long balls up the pitch in a desperate attempt to find an equaliser and salvage a point from the match.

One of said long balls was aimed at striker Jamie Vardy, only for Kolasinac to step in and intercept, and what he did next was absolutely brilliant.


Riyad Mahrez was closing Arsenal's new signing down at pace, but as you can see in the video below, he got past the Algerian with a wonderful roulette.

The 360 degree turn left Mahrez beaten all ends up, and the way Aaron Ramsey reacted in the middle of midfield by throwing his arms up in celebration emphasised how slick it was.

After the skill, Kolasinac got his head up and even tried to find Mesut Ozil with a through ball, but the German playmaker appeared to start his run from an offside position.

Fans react on Twitter

Arsenal fans who saw Kolasinac's piece of skill loved it, and they took to Twitter to share their opinion on the 24-year-old's awesome moment and overall display.

It's very early days, but if Kolasinac is able to replicate the form which saw him named in the 2016-17 Bundesliga Team of the Season, he'll be a huge fan favourite at the Emirates.
