But Ozil returned to training this week and is expected to feature in the opening Premier League game of the season tonight (7.45pm United Kingdom time) when Arsenal host Leicester.

"A goal machine", Keown told the Daily Mail when asked about Lacazette.

Arsenal twice came from behind to secure a stunning 4-3 victory over Leicester City in a thrilling opening game to the new Premier League season at the Emirates tonight.

Robson believes the Germany global will 'take centre stage' as the Gunner's main man this season.

Arsene Wenger brokered a fragile truce with Arsenal's dissenting fans by winning the FA Cup last season, but the Gunners boss has no margin for error after going 13 years without Premier League glory.

The new season of the English Premier league is about to start, and it seems that it is going to be the most exciting in its history.

"I'm disappointed with the handball in the build-up, but once the corner's given you have to defend it better", he said.

Eleven minutes into the second half Vardy restored Leicester City's lead.

The lead was short lived as Shinji Okazaki restored parity via his head only minutes later and Jamie Vardy slid in to score just before the half-hour mark. This is one team we will be watching very closely this term.

It was an exciting game, the neutrals will have had a good time and both sides will take positives. The game was barely two minutes old when Mohamed Elneny dinked in a cross from an inside-right position onto the head of Lacazette, who casually but firmly nodded the ball into the far corner beyond Kasper Schmeichel's despairing dive. England striker Vardy put the visitors 2-1 ahead just before the half hour, darting into the box to rifle another fine Albrighton cross past Cech after the winger had pounced on a poor square ball from Arsenal midfielder Mezut Ozil.

The Serie A side have now said they will not return with an improvement on the offer that was rejected and, while he remains a Leicester player, Shakespeare is more than happy to utilise the 2016 PFA Player of the Year.
