Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare was good on his word and started Riyad Mahrez, despite the fact the Algeria global has asked to leave the club. The players are champing at the bit to get started.

"At one stage I opened the door for him as I knew I had many strikers, and in the end he chose to stay", Wenger told BBC. "We had some avoidable goals which we conceded and overall we have to work on that".

Then he hit a root on a shot with an 8-iron and bent the club, meaning he couldn't use it when he needed it late in his round. Olesen picked up birdies on most of the same holes, and he finished with a 30-foot birdie that also sounded like an accident.

Football tactics historian Jonathan Wilson suggested Arsenal needed more center backs who could win headers after Leicester's first goal.
