Arsenal 4-3 Leicester - The Premier League Is Well And Truly Back

Arsenal staged their fightback after Okazaki came off in the 72nd minute. And yet Arsenal failed to break to level the scores - Welbeck sent the ball into the goal after a failed attempt to Lacazette grabbed a brace.

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud says that "something in his soul and his heart" convinced him to reject the chance to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer.

"We kept going and the spirit of the team was absolutely outstanding", Wenger said. He doesn't want to leave, but at some stage I opened the door for him because I had many strikers. "I know how important he is not only as a player but also in the group". But if Wenger plays two strikers then Giroud, with his physical presence, would be a really good complement to Lacazette, a lethal goalscorer that loves getting the ball inside the box. "Top quality game and you want PL to be best in the world and you have to produce games like that", Wenger told reporters. "It was one of the great days".

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

"Not only as a player, he is a fantastic player, but as well in the group - he has a big weight in the squad and it was a relief for me that he made a decision to stay".

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

"I'm always looking for the positives, we came to the Emirates and the players executed the game plan".

"The first goal was from a short corner and we were not focused enough". It's no doubt going to spoil all of us because the rest of the games are going to suck by comparison.

"There were hard moments when we were down and we managed to get out of that and it's great to see".
