Alexandre Lacazette's Premier League debut highlights Arsenal vs. Leicester

Alexandre Lacazette joined Arsenal on a club-record fee in July.

Alexandre Lacazette puts his goal-scoring abilities on display in the Premier League for the first time when Arsenal host Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium on Friday.

The 26-year-old striker, who signed for a club-record €53 million in July, had previously spent his entire career with Lyon, his hometown club.

Arsenal hope Lacazette will help them return to the top four of the Premier League table and qualify for the UEFA Champions League -- something they missed out on last season for the first time since Arsene Wenger took over as manager in 1996.

Most Ligue 1 goals, 2013-14 to 2016-17
Alexandre Lacazette scored more goals in Ligue 1 over the past four seasons than any other player.

The game will mark the first time the English top-flight season begins on a Friday in its 129-year history. Arsenal have not lost any of their seven Premier League games played on a Friday, coming out on top in six such contests. Leicester, meanwhile, have not won any of their three Friday night Premier League contests.

Leicester have also struggled overall against Arsenal. The club last defeated the Gunners at the Emirates in September of 1973, and their most recent victory over Arsenal came in November of 1994 (a run of 21 games).

Arsenal, meanwhile, have not won their first Premier League game of the season at the Emirates in three of the past four years. They have won only once in their last seven opening-day games -- a 2-1 victory against Crystal Palace in 2014 -- and have not lost three consecutive opening-day games since 1960.

Arsenal vs. Leicester City, Soccer Power Index
Arsenal have won their last 10 Premier League home games against Leicester City.

The Premier League debut of Lacazette should help offset Arsenal's loss of Alexis Sanchez, who will not face Leicester because of an abdominal strain.

Sanchez led Arsenal with 24 goals last season, and was the only Premier League player to reach double figures in both goals and assists (10).
