Giroud wants to stay and fight for his place, claims Wenger

Alexandre Lacazette Arsenal

While Lacazette netted the opener after two minutes against Leicester on Friday, a collapse left Arsenal trailing with seven minutes remaining.

A crossfield ball found Hector Bellerin on the right, with the full-back playing the ball back to Mohamed Elneny, who floated in a first-time cross.

The game seemed to be playing out to a rather tiresome finish with Arsenal not being able to create any chances and the Foxes happy to sit back on their lead.

However, Arsenal's makeshift back three of Sead Kolasinac, Nacho Monreal and Rob Holding failed to stop Shinji Okazaki equalising just two minutes later.

The English Premier League is going to be back with a bang as Arsenal take on Leicester City in the opening match tonight.

Even after Danny Welbeck levelled on the stroke of halftime, Vardy restored Leicester's lead after the break.

Both teams entered the locker room at halftime with their heads hung low.

Carragher was speaking shortly after Giroud had helped Arsenal to an incredible comeback win against Leicester at the Emirates.

The start of the second was quiet.

Leicester restored their lead shortly after half time as Vardy rose high to head home following a corner but Aaron Ramsey came off the bench to make it 3-3 in the 82nd minute with a fine finish.

After nearly 30 minutes being a goal down, the Gunners look destined for an opening day defeat but their so often hero, Aaron Ramsey, who came on a second half substitute, drilled the ball past the goalkeeper after showing some excellent control.

It brings him level with former Arsenal favourite Kevin Campbell, who breached Manchester City swiftly at Highbury in 1994, while Colombia great Faustino Asprilla also punished Sheffield Wednesday in the second minute of the 1997-98 campaign while at Newcastle United. The tempo slowed and the Gunners looked relaxed on the ball.

The Gunners went into this tie knowing that their hard opening start to the season - they have away games against Stoke, Liverpool and Chelsea to start the season - demanded that they win against a Leicester side that had spent heavily over the summer, with striker Kelechi Iheanacho coming in from Manchester City for a reported fee of £25m.

Everton are known to in the market for a new striker this summer, and following Arsenal's £52m purchase of Alexandre Lacazette, Giroud was heavily linked with a move to Goodison Park where he would be more likely to be the main striker. The defense will need to become firmer if far sterner opponents than Leicester are to be beaten.
