Game Over at Emirates! Arsenal 4-3 Leicester

Latest: Arsenal 1-1 Leicester

The match seemed to be following the normal script as the Gunners trailed the visitors 3-2, until Aaron Ramsey levelled things up with seven minutes on the clock, before Giroud sealed the three points in the 88th minute with a thunderous header.

Wenger revealed after Friday's win that Giroud, who has scored 97 goals in 231 appearances since joining from Montpellier in 2012, could have left the Gunners this summer.

It was a fascinating turn of events in the Premier League opener as Arsenal beat Leicester City 4-3 at the Emirates Stadium on the opening day of the 2017/2018 season.

Lacazette is the seventh Arsenal player to score on his first Premier League appearance.

Lacazette almost had his second of the night just minutes later, but Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel turned the shot aside, but Giroud beat the Dane with an exquisite header on the ensuing corner to give Arsenal the 4-3 victory.

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.

"At one stage I opened the door for him as I knew I had many strikers, and in the end he chose to stay", said Wenger. 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. "Giroud in his prime is at the top of his game".

Asked if Giroud could still leave before the transfer window closes on August 31 until January, Wenger replied: "No". That's how it came about but I think it was perhaps too early to celebrate because we didn't know how the match was going to pan out. "He has a big weight in the squad and it was a relief for me that he chose to stay". "We love him and in the end he chose to stay".

"It was good. Obviously I'm still getting used to the English game, the positives and negatives, shall we say, but I'm learning". But Leicester, which so astonishingly won the league in 2016, couldn't hold on for its first win at Arsenal since 1973.

"If you look at the third goal, I'm a bit disappointed with the handball leading up to it but that aside, once you get the corner, you have to defend it better".
