The 2017/18 Premier League season got off to a flying start as the Gunners won 4-3 against Leicester City at the Emirates stadium. Making his debut, was Arsenal’s new signing Sead Kolasinac.
Pitted against the effervescent Riyadh Mahrez, the Bosnian produced a reliable performance to negate the Algerian. One moment in particular summed up a poor afternoon for the Leicester number 10 as Kolasinac left him for dead with quick 360 movement.
Known for his aggressive style of play, the left back gave a glimpse of his all round ability in an assured display to ensure victory for his team.
For Mahrez, his audition to prove his worth to Arsene Wenger didn’t go quite well. Left to rue missed opportunities, Foxes will be disappointed with the result after scoring thrice.
A game which might have marked the end of one Premier League career with Roma circling around for the Algerian, it surely has marked the beginning of an encouraging relationship between Arsenal fans and their latest left-back candidate.
