Arsenal defeats Leicester City 4-3 in an incredible season opener

Arsene Wenger hailed "fantastic" Olivier Giroud for staying at Arsenal this summer after the French striker came on to score a late victor in Friday's dramatic 4-3 win over Leicester.

Research done by Bettingexpert shows that no current Premier League player has scored more opening day goals than Lacazette.

Worryingly for Arsenal, Arsene Wenger has sold Wojciech Szczesny and loaned out Emi Martinez, meaning that David Ospina, who is rumoured to want a move away from the club this summer, is Cech's only competition.

"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". It was a relief for me he chose to stay.

Giroud scores the dramatic victor to save Arsenal, a simply sensation moment and Leicester has their hearts broken again against Arsenal with a late goal scored against them.

Wenger insisted matches like this incredible curtain raiser are what helps the top level of English to be the world's most entertaining league - but it was Giroud that he saved his most fulsome praise for.

"When we thought about the key qualities, they were the experience, the gravitas for a club like this, a record of success in the game".

Wenger remains concerned by his side's defensive frailties and insists it is something they must work on.

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

"After that, we get the efficiency".

"It was the first game of the season and it was a classic for everybody to watch", Cech said.

"Of course you can not afford to concede three goals at home".

Speaking on Sky Sports after the game, Carragher explained why he's a fan of Giroud. "Overall I must say we kept going and the spirit of the team was absolutely outstanding and overall you could say as well we were punished on every single mistake tonight by a Leicester team who was very efficient going forward. He is focused and happy in the dressing room because we won the game".
