Lacazette quick off the mark to extend opening day record

Arsenal's Olivier Giroud celebrates after the Premier League match between Arsenal and Leicester City, in London, Britain, on August 11, 2017.

ARSENAL boss Arsene Wenger insists match-winner Olivier Giroud will stay at the club this season.

The Frenchman and fellow substitute Aaron Ramsay scored in the final seven minutes as Arsenal twice came from behind, the Welshman levelling two minutes before Giroud headed the decider.

As for the Foxes - who weren't too impressive in pre-season - Riyad Mahrez, heavily linked with a move away from the club, starts as does debutant Harry Maguire, but Kelechi Iheanacho has to make do with a place on the bench.

"It was one of the great days".

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 live, Ornstein said: "It's very unlikely Arsenal will sign him now".

All of a sudden United are in the driving seat ahead of Chelsea to win the Premier League . "Time is running out and I do want to win trophies".

Alexandre Lacazette marked his league debut for Arsenal with a goal on 94 seconds only for Shinji Okazaki to level less than three minutes later.

However, replays showed in the build-up of the goal that playmaker Mesut Ozil appeared to handle the ball but it was not spotted by referee Mike Dean. "We're working on other options but we're relaxed given our squad is 90 per cent complete", added Monchi in quotes reported on the Roma website.

But the French coach knows he has work to do on his defence after Friday's performance in which Arsenal were found wanting at two set pieces that resulted in Leicester goals.

"With the first corner, we were late".

The relieved gaffer said: "It's impossible to keep all the strikers happy when they don't play, but we have many games and hopefully I can give them all a good number of games".
