Wenger braced for knife-edge Arsenal season

Although Danny Welbeck leveled on the stroke of halftime, Vardy restored Leicester's lead after the break.

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.

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. At some stage, I opened the door for him because I knew that I had many strikers.

"He is really loved here, we love him and, in the end, he made a decision to stay". I keep the faith and I still believe I can have an important part to play this season in the club.

The France international's future had been in doubt following the club-record arrival of Alexandre Lacazette, with clubs both in England and back in his home country reportedly interested.

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

However, Wenger insists that Giroud will remain in north London beyond the end of the transfer window despite being given the opportunity to move on and seek more regular football elsewhere.

"We were quite good previous year on corners and I believe with a bit of work, we can get that out of the system". I thought the ball would go out as it was flying over me and suddenly there was a player.

Shakespeare was true to his word and started Riyad Mahrez despite the Algeria worldwide asking to leave the King Power Stadium.
