Daniel Amartey makes cameo as Arsenal beat Leicester City in EPL opener

Ghanaian defender Daniel Amartey played a substitute role for Leicester City in the 2017/18 English Premier League opener.
 
Arsenal managed to beat Leicester City 4-3 at the Emirates Stadium.
 
The 24-year-old replaced Japanese international Shinji Okazaki in the 72nd minute of the game.
 
Alexandre Lacazette headed the Gunners ahead 94 seconds into his top-flight debut, Shinji Okazaki nodding in the equaliser just two minutes later.
 
Vardy slid the visitors ahead from Marc Albrighton's cross, only for Danny Welbeck to stroke level on half-time.
 
Leicester took the lead again when Vardy headed in Riyad Mahrez's corner before Arsene Wenger made an inspired double substitution which sparked Arsenal's comeback.
 
The Gunners boss introduced Aaron Ramsey and Giroud after 67 minutes - within 20 minutes both players had scored as Arsenal turned defeat into victory.
 
Ramsey smashed in an angled drive - from a corner which was won after Mesut Ozil handled in the build-up - before Giroud showed athleticism and strength to meet Granit Xhaka's corner.
 
Amartey joined the Foxes lads from FC Copaghean in January last year.
