Arsenal score two late goals for comeback win vs. Leicester City

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.

Ramsey tied the score 3-3 in the 83rd minute with a nice strike from inside the penalty area, and Giroud got the victor two minutes later with a header that Kasper Schmeichel was unable to keep out of the net.

Arsenal got off to a quick start in this one, with Alexandre Lacazette scoring just a little over a minute into the game to give himself his first-ever Premier League goal of his career.

But it was not to be.

But it was not to be as substitutes Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud struck late on to seal a remarkable three points for Arsene Wenger's side.

Alexandre Lacazette's arrival has bumped Giroud even further down the Arsenal pecking order, but having given the 30-year-old the chance to leave, Wenger was thrilled he made a decision to stay.

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

According to the AP's Tim Booth, Paxton will undergo an MRI on Friday to determine the extent of the injury . To put ourselves in the position we're in right now, a lot of it has had to do with James Paxton .

"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".

"He doesn't want to leave and I'm happy that he wants to stay". He's a fantastic player, but as well he has a big weight in this squad.

"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".

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. "It's a determined no". He'll play 30 games, he'll give you 15 goals.

"However, just to remind you we have 33 players and they are all good players. We were quite good a year ago on corners and overall I believe that with a bit of work we can get that out of the system". The future of Alexis Sanchez is unclear but Wenger has suggested he is prepared to keep the striker for a season and then let him leave on a free if he will not sign a £300,000-a-week contract.

"The first goal was from a short corner and we were not focused enough".

Yes, of course, I am convinced that we won 10 of the last 11 games, and we won against Man City in the semi-final and the final against Chelsea.
