Not long to go: 2 things to expect from Arsenal’s opening day fixture with Leicester City

If you’re an Arsenal supporter, then the Football Transfer Tavern is the ideal place to be as fans are in jubilation following the Gunners’ positive start to their pre-season schedule in Australia. 

£52 million signing Alexandre Lacazette got his career with the north London outfit off to the perfect start as the Frenchman bagged the second in a satisfying two-nil victory over Sydney FC in their pre-season opener.

Our Arsenal-mad landlord was then left ecstatic as Arsene Wenger’s squad came away from their second and final game ‘down under’ with a 3-1 triumph over Western Sydney Wanderers; heavily-linked away Olivier Giroud and Welshman Aaron Ramsey among the scorers.
