Wenger 'relieved' Giroud has chose to stay

France ace Anthony Martial has been linked with Arsenal Inter Milan and Tottenham this summer
The pressure eventually told as, in the space of two minutes late on, Ramsey controlled Granit Xhaka's pass and smartly tucked past Schmeichel, before fellow sub Giroud headed in off the bar from a corner to earn maximum points for his side.
Jamie Vardy - who has now scored five goals against the Gunners in his last six appearances - grabbed his first of the night on the half-hour mark to give the Foxes the lead, but Arsenal equalised on the stroke of half-time through Danny Welbeck. In the end he chose to stay and it was one of the great days of the recent weeks for me. I keep the faith and I still believe I can have an important part to play this season in the club.
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.
Wenger has always been desperate to keep Giroud because he offers something so different with his aerial presence but was also willing to let him leave if he felt that he needed a guarantee that he would start more regularly in this World Cup season.
Having seen his Arsenal side win just one of their last seven opening fixtures, Wenger was staring at another defeat but was ultimately left satisfied with the victory.
"I feel as well that the goals we conceded we can work to get rid of that because one was a corner, one was a ball we lost in the build-up and the third goal was on a corner again so we conceded two goals from 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. "We were a threat and played football and contributed to a thoroughly entertaining game".
To think, we have an entire opening weekend to go yet, as well as an entire season.
