Giroud the hero as Arsenal escapes with win over Leicester

Record signing Alexander Lacazette opened his account within two minutes of the kick-off, but the home side's lead was nearly immediately rubbed out as Shinji Okazaki equalised minutes later before Jamie Vardy put the visitors in front after half an hour.

On Olivier Giroud: "I love the man and the player".

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Wenger said: "We are open to an exceptional player". Pop the corks, though, because the Premier League is back and just as it seemed that Vardy was again having a party there was an intoxicating comeback from Arsenal who had until then, at times, stumbled drunkenly around the pitch.

Intriguingly, it is a former Arsenal forward with whom Lacazette now shares his record.

The 30-year old put his side 2-1 ahead of Arsenal in the 29th minute after a goal from Okazaki had cancelled Lacazette's opener.

Tanaka is in the fourth year of a seven-year $155 million contract that permits him to "opt-out" after this season. Tanaka is the second Yankees pitcher to go on the disabled list this week, after CC Sabathia was placed on Friday.


Just as the atmosphere had turned sour, goals to Aaron Ramsey, assisted by Granit Xhaka, and Olivier Giroud allowed Arsenal to hold on in the last five minutes to grab a fearless victory. Will the Gunners be able to challenge for the title this season? "So overall I think he adapts slowly to the way we want to play and is a collective player and an intelligent player as well".

"When the substitutes came on they had enough quality to make the difference". Firstly I very much doubt that we will see a back three of Holding, Monreal and Kolasinac together very often and maybe not in the Premier League for the rest of the season.

"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".

"I opened the door for him, because I knew we had many strikers, but he's really loved here and he chose to stay".

Leicester showed some of the form that won them the title in 2016 and helped stave off relegation last term but in the end they were undone by canny France worldwide Giroud who has been linked with a move away from Arsenal all summer. "We were a threat and played football and contributed to a thoroughly entertaining game".
