The striker, who the Gunners signed from Lyon for an initial fee of €53 million in the summer, finished clinically to put the hosts ahead after two minutes, expertly heading home Mohamed Elneny's cross.

Arsenal fell behind twice against a tenacious Leicester City before winning 4-3, thanks to a late goal by Olivier Giroud in the opening match of the 2017-2018 English Premier League (EPL) football season here.

Wenger shuffled his pack and Aaron Ramsey levelled with eight minutes remaining before fellow substitute Giroud wrapped up the points.

But after deciding to stick it out for a sixth season at Arsenal, Giroud was the north London club's match-winner on the opening day of the new Premier League campaign after coming off the bench.

"I don't know whether it was a lack of concentration or just a lack of game management in the last ten minutes, but you then concede again from a set play in terms of being overpowered".


Asked if there was any update on Sanchez's situation, Wenger replied: "No".

"We have to take the positives out of the game, we have gone toe-to-toe with Arsenal over 90 minutes and I don't think many teams will come here and do that. He has a big weight in the squad and it was a relief for me that he made a decision to stay". He also labelled the former Montpellier marksman as being "in his prime" and "at the top of his game".

"We were punished on every single mistake by a Leicester team that was very efficient going forward".

It's likely no one is more relieved with the result than Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who kept his job after missing an invite to the Champions League for the first time in his 21-year tenure with the club and months of non-stop shouts of "WENGER OUT" from supporters.

"I feel as well that the goals we conceded, we can work together to get rid of that because one was a ball we lost in the build-up and we conceded two goals on corners. We were quite good previous year on corners and overall I believe that with a bit of work we can get that out of the system", the French coach added.
