Ian Wright has heaped praise on both Sead Kolansinac and Alexandre Lacazette after the summer signings both helped Arsenal to kick off their Premier League campaign with a 4-3 win over Leicester City at The Emirates.

Left-back Kolasinac signed for the Gunners from Schalke on a free transfer at the start of the summer, and striker Lacazette joined the north London side in a club-record deal back in July.

Both players featured from the start as Arsene Wenger’s men claimed a crucial three points in their Premier League opener on Friday night, with Lacazette opening the scoring early on with a well-placed header.

The two signings are the only recruits that Arsenal have made so far this summer, and Gunners legend Wright has been pleased by what he’s seen from them so far.

Speaking on Match of the Day, Wright simply said: “I like Kolasinac. I like Lacazette. They were both excellent.”

Both Kolasinac and Lacazette will be hoping to feature for Arsenal when the Gunners take on Stoke City in their next Premier League game at the bet365 Stadium on Saturday evening.

Arsenal are aiming to win the Premier League title for the firs time since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 season this term.
