GETTY Alexis Sanchez has been offered a new Arsenal contract

Shinji Okazaki had equalised on five minutes following Alexandre Lacazette's second-minute opener, and Arsenal fans were not pleased with Petr Cech's involvement in the build-up to the equaliser.

Against a plucky Leicester side at a packed and tense Emirates Stadium, Arsene Wenger's men scored twice in the last 10 minutes - first through substitute Aaron Ramsey before the much-maligned Giroud headed in the victor off Granit Xhaka's corner. After Aaron Ramsey leveled in the 83rd minute, Giroud sealed the three points with a header inside two minutes on an evening of thrilling attacks gifted by fragile defending.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed Olivier Giroud turned down the chance to leave the club during the summer transfer window. "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". Schmeichel's saves were keeping Leicester in front but he was beaten when Ramsey got on the end of Granit Xhaka's cross and, again, when substitute Giroud headed in a corner.

But the French coach knows he has work to do on his defence after yesterday's performance in which Arsenal were found wanting at two set pieces that resulted in Leicester goals.

The Chile worldwide has been linked with a move away from the club this summer with less than a year remaining on his current deal at the Emirates Stadium and could walk away for free at the end of the upcoming season.

Tottenham win first game of the season against Newcastle
It's 8/1 that Kane scores a header, 15/2 that Gayle and Alli both score, 14s both Ritchie to score from outside the box and Spurs to win 3/1.


Giroud, who had a hard time getting into the starting XI last season as Wenger preferred to play Alexis Sanchez as the lone striker, has been vocal in his desire to play more games from start.

But we have begun the season with a dramatic win, which is unusual in itself, and we Arsene Wenger has continuously and consistently refused to allow any of our stars to leave.

"We went for a win and we deservedly earned it".

"With the first corner, we were late". He called Arsenal versus Leicester a microcosm of the Gunners' typical Premier League seasons: a strong start, a dip in the middle and a brilliant finish. I got back late, I should have handled this better. "We see players like Hector Bellerin, Alex Iwobi coming through, Reiss Nelson and Joe Willock have had a fantastic pre-season".
