Giroud's late goal powers Arsenal past Leicester City

Giroud's late goal powers Arsenal past Leicester City

A predictable Arsenal implosion followed, with Shinji Okazaki and Jamie Vardy putting Leicester in front.

Vardy doubled his tally after the break, but Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud scored just two minutes apart to complete an unlikely comeback.

To cap off a busy first half of the season, Welbeck tied things up after 45 minutes, scoring from close range.

The moves paid off, with Ramsey equalizing in the 83rd minute and Giroud sending the Emirates crowd home ecstatic with a goal two minutes later to give Arsenal a lead that they would not give up, earning the Gunners three points and a short-lived stint at the top of the table before the rest of the league kicks off this weekend.

Instead, Wenger avoided a third consecutive season-opening loss at the start of his new two-year contract.

"I don't know whether it was a lack of concentration or just a lack of game management in the last ten minutes, but you then concede again from a set play in terms of being overpowered".

Many observers may have thought Giroud's days at Arsenal were numbered following the arrival of fellow France striker Lacazette from Lyon for a club-record £46.5m fee.

This was showcased by this riot not only in the way that it's being talked about, but also in the lack of police presence. The president said he had a conversation with McAuliffe and would provide any federal support needed to help the state.

Asked if there was any update on Sanchez's situation, Wenger replied: "No".

To think, we have an entire opening weekend to go yet, as well as an entire season.

"To be honest, there was something in my soul and in my heart which told me to stay".

"It was good. Obviously I'm still getting used to the English game, the positives and negatives, shall we say, but I'm learning".

"After that, let's take it game by game - go to Stoke - then to Liverpool, who are as well one of the teams who want to win the Premier League".

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.

"Previously in the Premier League we've not got off to the best of starts, so it meant a lot for us to get a good start and get three points today".
