Giroud the hero as Arsenal escapes with win over Leicester

Arsenal 4 Leicester 3 Ramsey and Giroud rescue win for Gunners GETTY Olivier Giroud celebrates his winning goal

Goals on either in within the first five minutes set the tone for a raucous night.

Danny Welbeck levelled matters in first-half stoppage time, completing a fast-paced, pulsating first half of action. Arsene Wenger has admitted that the likelihood of Alexis hanging around past the end of his current contract is slim to none.

The event which got people talking was undoubtably the goal scored by Gunners' new recruit Alexandre Lacazette who managed to find the net during his top flight debut in under two minutes, which installed great promise for the upcoming season. Ramsey tied the score 3-3 in the 83rd minute with a nice strike from inside the penalty area, and Giroud got the victor two minutes later with a header that Kasper Schmeichel was unable to keep out of the net. This issue was compounded by the fact that, despite many attempts, Wenger still has not resolved his defensive midfield conundrum.

It was a recurring concern every time Leicester moved into the final third, with Arsenal's three at the back looking unacquainted.

The former Liverpool player also praised Giroud's contribution defensively.

Must never play that central role in a three again. Man of the Match. He didn't impact the game too much down the right as he didn't really test his opposite number a lot, however, he did well to keep the ball alive in the build up to Lacazette's goal. Wenger now has two proper strikers at his disposal, and can easily switch to the 4-4-2 system, with Giroud and Lacazette playing up front.

Mahrez was actually one of Leicester's better players in pre-season despite publicly stating his intention to leave at the end of last season. While Arsenal acquired their long term target man Alexander Lacazette on clubs record transfer fee and Sead Kolasinac on free transfer.

Instead, they chose to make it hard for themselves again, like they so often do, and as a result, we got one of the games of the season in the first match of the new campaign.

Pep Guardiola was clearly desperate for new full-backs this summer and splashed around £50 million to sign Kyle Walker from Tottenham, as well as Danilo from Real Madrid.
