Drama At The Emirates As Arsenal Beat Leicester In Seven-Goal Thriller

Arsenal's French striker Olivier Giroud (2nd R) celebrates with teammates after scoring Arsenal's fourth goal during the Premier League season opener against Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium on Friday.

Arsene Wenger also added after the game that he was delighted that the 30-year-old had made a decision to stay at the Emirates, after he had offered him the opportunity to leave.

I am not trying to say that the Arsenal defence was not an issue as the Gunners scraped over the line to win the first game of the new Premier League season, because it most certainly was. "At one stage I opened the door for him as I knew I had many strikers, and in the end, he chose to stay". We love him and in the end he chose to stay. Egypt worldwide Mohamed Elneny sent a cross that was met by Lacazette, who headed the ball beyond Kasper Schmeichel. "It's a long time since we had so much quality [in attack]".

"Even when he played on the left, he did very well".

"But I don't want him to go. He's a collective player and an intelligent player".

Despite only starting 17 games last season in all competitions, Giroud still scored 16 times - including an eye-catching scorpion-style kick against Crystal Palace.

England striker Vardy claimed a goal either side of Danny Welbeck's equaliser at Emirates Stadium after strike partner Shinji Okazaki cancelled out Alexandre Lacazette's second-minute header.

Bills deal Watkins, get Matthews
It sure seems like it - he caught four passes in Buffalo's preseason game Thursday night. "I feel like I'm going to puke". Despite showing flashes of being a star, it didn't work out, as Watkins was often injured.

Despite having the lion's share of possession, the hosts found themselves 2-1 down just before the half-hour mark, with a misplaced Granit Xhaka pass allowing Marc Albrighton to set up Jamie Vardy, who slid the cross home.

The impressive Vardy scored his second in the 53rd minute to put Leicester in front once more, curling Riyad Mahrez's corner into the bottom far corner amid poor Arsenal marking.

The fightback did happen however with Ramsey (83rd minute) and Giroud (85th minute) securing a 4-3 opening night win for the Gunners.

"I feel that the goals we conceded, we can work to get rid of that", he said.

"The first goal was from a short corner and we were not focused enough. I don't know whether it was lack of concentration or game management".

"After that, we get the efficiency".
