Arsène Wenger praises match-winner Olivier Giroud for staying at Arsenal

13 August 2017, 03:56 | Pamela Mathis

Substitute Olivier Giroud scored a late victor as Arsenal staged a dramatic fightback to kick off the new Premier League season with a pulsating 4-3 victory against Leicester City on Friday night.

Now with a freakish back four of (from right to left) Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Monreal, Kolasinac and Hector Bellerin, Arsenal pushed for an equaliser, and on 83 minutes it came.

The lead was short lived as Shinji Okazaki restored parity via his head only minutes later and Jamie Vardy slid in to score just before the half-hour mark. He doesn't want to leave, but at some stage I opened the door for him because I had many strikers.

A insane game sees Arsenal winning 4-3 over Leicester City.

Giroud had been heavily linked with a £20million switch to Everton following Arsenal's club-record deal for Alexandre Lacazette.

"Lacazette is simple - in every game he's stronger".

"At one stage I opened the door for him as I knew I had many strikers, and in the end he made a decision to stay", Wenger told BBC.

After the break, the groans returned to the Emirates when the Foxes took the lead once again, this time when Vardy nodded in a Riyad Mahrez corner after more weak defending.

Things got off to a good start for the home side as Lacazette only needed two minutes to score his first competitive goal for his new club.

But I think I'm ready, I feel strong enough in my legs. "I just want to give my best, enjoy the match, and try to fight". Wozniacki will play Romania's defending champion Simona Halep or Ukrainian fifth seed Elina Svitolina in Sunday's final.


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 lovely cross to Jamie Vardy who would put it away to give Leicester City their first lead of the campaign.

Have you signed up to play in our fantasy football league?

"The first goal was from a short corner and we were not focused enough".

Wenger added: "We know defensively we can do better but overall we produced a top-quality game".

Leicester showed plenty of endeavour as they came close to causing an upset in the Premier League's first fixture.

Will the Gunners be able to challenge for the title this season?

"I'm always looking for the positives, we came to the Emirates and the players executed the game plan".

"This has happened to us the last three seasons here", he told Sky Sports.
