Raising the bar for the other 379 games this season, Arsenal defeated Leicester City in a thrilling 4-3 contest that had both teams playing from behind and taking the lead at various points.
Instead, Wenger avoided a third consecutive season-opening loss at the start of his new two-year contract. But for Arsenal the same old problems at the back resurfaced in worrying fashion in their curtain raiser with Leicester. Despite being held in the box, Giroud got up and powered a header just over the bar, unleashing a roar at the Emirates from fans who were expecting the worst as Leicester's lead carried on into the match.
The Wales worldwide probably has and would very likely have started last night against the Foxes if he had mnot missed the Community shield with a minor injury problem, but the France global centre forward seems to be just outside the manager's ideal first team.
Mahrez featured in the seven-goal thriller against Arsenal, which opened this season's Premier League, with the Gunners ran out 4-3 winners after trailing on two occasions.
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.
A predictable Arsenal implosion followed, with Shinji Okazaki and Jamie Vardy putting Leicester in front.
"It's an unbelievable opportunity for him", Henry told Sky Sports.
But he drew encouragement from his side's display.
The versatile player has already established himself as a starter in the Chelsea side after years of going on loan with last season being his best since his professional career began a decade ago. Their lack of experience in the complex system was plain to see and proved costly against an energised Leicester attack, eager to get at the unfamiliar combination.
"Huddersfield may have signed 11 players but still I still expect them to have a tough experience along with Brighton".
Jamie Vardy was adjudged the Man of the Match in the game. Arsenal's defence couldn't cope.
Within three minutes Leicester were level.
Arsenal pressured after the equalizer and almost scored through Kolasinac, but a needless turnover on the other end between Elneny and Granit Xhaka allowed Leicester to take its first lead of the match. The back three haven't looked comfortable all night.
"To win like we did will only strengthen it and overall we have good ingredients in the squad and it is a good opportunity again to show it away from home".
"I feel good in my head and also physically. Arsene Wenger will be hoping those reinforcements will be back soon".
"But as much as I can I will try to help the team to reach our target and tonight we needed this win as everybody knows the importance of the first game for confidence and we keep going".
Fellow pundit Gary Neville agreed, describing Arsenal as "vulnerable" and "naive".

Shakespeare was true to his word and started Riyad Mahrez despite the Algeria worldwide asking to leave the King Power Stadium. Perhaps we've got to ensure that all our players give their all and hope that City are off-colour, but it can happen that way.

Golf great Nick Faldo has slammed Jason Day's "crazy" decision that capped off a third-round implosion at the US PGA Championship. All the leaders, with the exception of Oosthuizen, the 2010 British Open victor , are seeking their first major championship.
Mohamed Salah's pace and trickery are likely to give defenders the chills in the Premier League this season. "The bad news for the Hammers is that Romelu Lukaku scored against the European Champions midweek".
All three have the pace to change defence into attack quickly, something City lacked in the full-back positions last season. Is he be the new Thierry Henry? An opening goal for them would be incredible , but City should handle them quite easily.
Qualità e quantità tra centrocampo e attacco per costringere quasi ogni avversario a ritirarsi nella proprio metà campo. I giocatori non sono tutti uguali in una squadra di calcio: inutile che ci raccontiamo le favole.
He said , "I'm delighted to be joining BT Sport, ' said Lampard, who will be at Wembley on Sunday as Arsenal take on Chelsea ". My only task is to focus on the pitch, what happens on the pitch, during the training session to work with my players.
