Less than three minutes later, Olivier Giroud scored the victor for Arsenal, sparking celebrations at the Emirates Stadium.

Speaking after the seven-goal thriller at the Emirates, Wenger told Sky Sports News: "I love the man and the player". It can happen in pre-season and anyway, I don't think I would have included him on Friday night. He's a fantastic player, but as well he has a big weight in this squad.

"I don't know how good everyone will be".

Wenger reassured that his compatriot Giroud will not be leaving the club this transfer window despite losing his starting role to their record summer signing Alexandre Lacazette who opened his English Premier League goal account in the match against Leicester City.

"For example, hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we spent this season".

"Even when he played on the left, he did very well".

"I think we have all seen the amusing business of the transfer window and we never know what is round the corner. He's an intelligent player".

The Gunners broke the deadlock inside two minutes when Lacazette marked his league debut with a goal by heading home Mohamed Elneny's cross.

England striker Jamie Vardy, who was heavily linked with Arsenal 12 months ago, scored a brace either side of a Danny Welbeck leveller that showed Arsenal's rearguard to be equally awful from open play and set-piece situations.

Following Danny Welbeck's leveller in first-half stoppage time, another corner yielded Leicester's third goal as Riyad Mahrez's cross was headed home by Vardy.

"Well if you were a manager and you would be on the bench when you're 3-2 down with 20 minutes to go, and you win 4-3, you're more happy than concerned".

"The teams that arrive, in the first four, five, six games they are so complicated".

Dare we say Giroud has become one of the Prem's most clinical finishers? "They had chances and then we had to chase".

Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare was good on his word and started Riyad Mahrez, despite the fact the Algeria worldwide has asked to leave the club.

But he drew encouragement from his side's display.

If the answer is no you need to take a long, hard look at yourself.

Vatuvei sprung up waving with a finger in the year to let his teammates know he was confident he'd got the deed done and the video referee shortly confirmed it moments later. We bought three and the market is so demanding not just for Manchester City.

Olivier Giroud scored his 99th goal for Arsenal to rescue three points on the opening day of the new Premier League season.

The visitors found joy down the flanks, exposing the Gunners' familiar defensive failings through Vardy's sharp movement and quick balls forward. We encourage him to do that.

"We have a central midfielder and striker, so obviously another player would be one coming from the sides". "He came here tonight and got the goals his performance deserved".
