The Frenchman and fellow substitute Aaron Ramsay scored in the final seven minutes as Arsenal twice came from behind, the Welshman levelling two minutes before Giroud headed the decider.

Giroud came big for the Gunners once again.

The English Premier League got underway in fine style as Arsenal triumped 4-3 over Leicester courtesy of a dramatic late victor at the Emirates Stadium on Friday night.

Arsenal opened the scoring in the second minute but the Foxes hit back to lead 2-1 and then 3-2 before the Gunners' spectacular comeback in the closing minutes.

Alexandre Lacazette marked his Arsenal league debut with a goal on 94 seconds, only for Shinji Okazaki to level less than three minutes later.

The Premier League season started in incredible fashion, with two goals in a matter of minutes after the opening whistle.

"Not only as a player, he is a fantastic player, but as well in the group".

Giroud had been linked with an exit during the summer, and Wenger admitted he considered allowing his most authentic target man to leave but the 30-year-old resisted the idea. Giroud is in his prime, at the top of his game.

"It is a relief and I believe as well a reminder to the players that they have hurdles on the way and that we can get round it, like tonight so that is quite positive".

Manager Arsene Wenger this week revealed that he gave the player the option of leaving, but that he chose to fight for his place.

"I felt that to lose tonight would have been bad for us because we had such good preparation and to sit there in the morning and think we had lost at home would have been awful", he said.

"We were punished on every single mistake by a Leicester team that was very efficient going forward". But Leicester, which so astonishingly won the league in 2016, couldn't hold on for its first win at Arsenal since 1973.

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

"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".
