Arsene Wenger delighted Olivier Giroud chose to stay at Arsenal

I know how important he is not only as a player - he's a fantastic player - but also in the group he has a big weight.

'I'm very pleased for the team tonight, hopefully we're going to carry on'.

In the league's first Friday night start, Arsene Wenger's side was trailing 3-2 with seven minutes remaining but Ramsey grabbed the equaliser and Giroud headed in an 85th-minute victor.

Olivier Giroud insisted Arsenal never gave up hope of staging a dramatic fightback as the France striker's late victor capped a thrilling 4-3 victory over Leicester in Friday's Premier League opener. Giroud is in his prime - he is at the top of his game. Arsenal welcomed Leicester City into Emirates Stadium on Friday to get the festivities rolling this season, and it appeared as if everyone would get a chance to use their Arsenal jokes for at least the next week.

Record signing Alexander Lacazette opened his account within two minutes of the kick-off, but the home side's lead was nearly immediately rubbed out as Shinji Okazaki equalised minutes later before Jamie Vardy put the visitors in front after half an hour.

Jamie Vardy then struck twice either side of Welbeck's equaliser as the Foxes looked set for a first league win over Arsenal since 1983.

Arsenal debutant Alexandre Lacazette gave his team a dream start with a goal after only 94 seconds.

You can not keep the strikers happy when they don't play.

"Maybe not (enough changes) to win the league, which ultimately is what they want to do", Neville said on Sky Sports. "(We had) 70 percent possession, 27 shots on goal, Leicester had three shots on target and scored three so that shows you how efficient they are". He doesn't want to leave, but at some stage I opened the door for him because I had many strikers.

"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".

To think, we have an entire opening weekend to go yet, as well as an entire season.
