Arsenal beat Leicester City 4-3 in Premier League opener

Granit Xhaka's casual pass to Ramsey was masterfully flicked past Schmiechel - two minutes later, the attacker Olivier Giroud, who came in the 67th minute, scored the winning goal, lifting the Gunners to glory.
Arsene Wenger also added after the game that he was delighted that the 30-year-old had made a decision to stay at the Emirates, after he had offered him the opportunity to leave. Ramsey tied the score 3-3 in the 83rd minute with a nice strike from inside the penalty area, and Giroud got the victor two minutes later with a header that Kasper Schmeichel was unable to keep out of the net.
Like many of Leicester's players, Vardy endured a post-title slump last season, scoring only 13 times in the league, and Shakespeare was delighted to see him back among the goals. Giroud had been linked with moves to Marseille, West Ham and Everton over the summer and speculation intensified when striker Alexandre Lacazette arrived at the Emirates with a £52 million price tag, the sort of money which demands game time.
Giroud was quick to hail it and told Sky Sports after the match: "Obviously I knew that I was going to have a chance so we tried to push".
Giroud has often been a figure of ridicule and has copped plenty of criticism during his tenure in England but his record is one of a dedicated servant to Arsenal.
"Well if you were a manager and you would be on the bench when you're 3-2 down with 20 minutes to go, and you win 4-3, you're more happy than concerned", he said. But I don't want him to go and in the end he chose to stay. Cech was unconvincing for Leicester's 2nd goal after he hesitated to come out to meet Marc Albrighton's cross, which Vardy converted to make it 1-2. "Because one was a corner, one was a goal where we lost the ball in the build-up and the third goal was a corner again".
"Not only as a player, he is a fantastic player, but as well in the group".
Lacazette had a terrific goal return in France last season, netting 28 strikes in 30 league appearances. "I don't know whether it was lack of concentration or game management". "We have to be positive as it's the first game".
