Olivier Giroud confirms Arsenal stay

Arsene Wenger hailed "fantastic" Olivier Giroud for staying at Arsenal this summer after the French striker came on to score a late victor in Friday's dramatic 4-3 win over Leicester.

But Arsenal made it 2-2 on the stroke of half-time, Lacazette pushing the ball to fellow debutant, Sead Kolasinac who squared for Danny Welbeck to tap in.

Giroud celebrates the late victor.

Riyad Mahrez, in the meantime, starts for Leicester City despite being linked with a move away from the club this summer.

Here are three quick thoughts from the Emirates 4-3 comeback win vs. Leicester.

Alexandre Lacazette scored more goals in Ligue 1 over the past four seasons than any other player.

While Ozil appears close to securing a new deal, the 28-year-old looks unlikely to feature in the club's Premier League opener against Leicester on Friday as the manager has confirmed on their official website that he suffered a knock to his ankle leaving him out of training earlier in the week. A cross from Elneny found the head of Lacazette, who opened his body, drawing Wes Morgan to power a header into the far post of Schmeichel.


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

The players are champing at the bit to get started", he said. The lead lasted three minutes before Leicester's new signing Harry Maguire headed Marc Albrighton's cross from the left back into the middle and Shinji Okazaki nodded the ball past flailing Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech.

"I'm convinced that (it) will happen soon", Wenger said when asked about the likelihood of a woman taking over a team in one of England's top two divisions.

Lacazette scores the season's opening goal.

Albrighton was again the man to make a difference.

Eleven minutes into the second half Vardy restored Leicester City's lead. One of them nearly saw Vardy get around Cech only for the goalkeeper to make a fine sliding tackle, only for Leicester to return to a more orthodox and obviously successful way of attacking against this side: swinging balls into the area.

Arsenal's set-piece defending was repeatedly poor, probably related to the fact they essentially started this game without any commanding centre-backs and Nacho Monreal of all people deployed in the middle of their back three. Having ended months of speculation by signing a new two-year contract, Wenger believes if his players put on a united front, the exasperated fans will fall into line behind them.
