Late goal gives Arsenal EPL thriller win

13 August 2017, 04:07 | Pamela Mathis

Arsene Wenger has heaped plaudits on Olivier Giroud who scored the victor that ensured Arsenal claimd all three points in their nervy season opening day 4-3 win against Leicester City at the Emirates.

ARSENAL'S ALEXANDRE LACAZETTE got his Premier League career off to the flawless start against Leicester at the Emirates this evening. "We have many games and hopefully, I can give them games", Wenger said during his post match conference.

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.

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.

Two minutes later, the comeback was complete, with super-sub Giroud sending the home fans wild via magnificent header from a Xhaka corner, despite being held by Wes Morgan.

The Serie A side have now said they will not increase their offer and Shakespeare is happy to have Mahrez in the team.

"I love the man (Giroud) and the player".

Paul Merson: Arsenal would let Alexis Sanchez join PSG tomorrow
Mourinho confirmed yesterday that the club were in talks about re-signing the Swede for the second half of the new campaign. PSG had a wanted list at the start of the season with three names on it, Neymar, Alexis and Kylian Mbappe.


"He's a fantastic guy and he's committed".

"I opened the door for him at some stage as I had many strikers and it's important for him to play but I don't want him to go".

"We started really well and I thought we could stay in control".

Vardy had better luck soon after, though, this time climbing highest to pick out the far corner of the net with his head from a corner to double his personal tally for the night. We lost the ball for the second goal and lacked some experience.

"I don't know how good everyone will be".

"Obviously I knew that I was going to have a chance so we tried to push", Giroud said.

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.
