"Not only as a player, he is a fantastic player, but as well in the group - he has a big weight in the squad and it was a relief for me that he made a decision to stay".

Olivier Giroud was on hand on the opening day of the English Premier League to save Arsenal the agony of losing at home, when he came in as a sub to give the Gunners a 4-3 winning edge over Leicester.

Asked if Giroud could still leave before the transfer window closes on August 31 until January, Wenger replied: "No".

Shakespeare told Sky Sports News after the game: "We've had this a few times here".

"I have a lot of respect for the players I had, I never complained for one bad game or bad defeat, making excuses, never, even in Germany I never said that, never in my life I make an excuse about what happened", he added.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger expressed "relief" over Olivier Giroud's decision to stay after the France striker earned his side a breathless 4-3 win against Leicester City.

"I don't say I know the league better because I have been in this league for a long time". Although Arsenal signed off in May by lifting the FA Cup, a fifth-place finish ensured the north London club failed to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in two decades. "We had some avoidable goals which we conceded and overall we have to work on that", he said.

"That's a nice start but obviously I prefer to be on the pitch".

Arsenal appeared a step behind defensively, ceding possession nearly uncontested at moments, and Marc Albrighton would make them pay, jumping on a misplayed ball from Arsenal and sending a handsome cross to Jamie Vardy who would put it away to give Leicester City their first lead of the campaign. Following a short corner on the left, Marc Albrighton's deep cross was headed back across goal by Harry Maguire and Okazaki leapt to nod a header past Petr Cech.

However, Arsenal managed to level matters on the stroke of halftime as Sead Kolasinac squared the ball for Welbeck to slot home, 2-2. "Yes, but we scored four goals as well and the game was of quality". Again a set-piece proved Arsenal's undoing as Mahrez's in-swinging corner from the right was nodded in by Vardy.
