Arsene Wenger Admits His Best Player Could Leave

Arsene Wenger Admits His Best Player Could Leave

Substitute Olivier Giroud headed in a dramatic late victor as Arsene Wenger's men fought back to beat a spirited Leicester side in a thrilling start to the 2017-18 Premier League season.

'We wanted to do that today - unfortunately that didn't happen and it's something where we can look back and analyse the game and see where we went wrong and improve on the situation'. Arsenal record-signing Alexandre Lacazette got off to a ideal by scoring inside two minutes of kickoff. And in the end he made a decision to stay and it was one of the great days of the recent weeks for me.

Ramsey smashed a sitter from a few yards out and Giroud headed the game victor off the crossbar.

"With Lacazette, it is simple", the French tactician said, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

"We have many games and hopefully, I can give them games", Wenger said during his post match conference.

"This has happened to us the last three seasons here".

Arsenal appeared a step behind defensively, ceding possession nearly uncontested at moments, and Marc Albrighton would make them pay, jumping on a misplayed ball from Arsenal and sending a attractive cross to Jamie Vardy who would put it away to give Leicester City their first lead of the campaign. We had a lot of experienced defenders out injured for the game.


Arsenal continued to dominate possession in the second half, only to concede a another goal in the 55th minute, when Vardy redirected a Riyad Mahrez corner kick past home goalkeeper Petr Cech.

Leicester showed some of the form that won them the title in 2016 and helped stave off relegation last term but in the end they were undone by canny France worldwide Giroud who has been linked with a move away from Arsenal all summer.

Giroud told Sky Sports after the game that he and his teammates never doubted they could come back.

It was the Frenchman's 26th headed goal since he signed for Arsenal in June 2012, a Premier League record.

"It's impossible to keep them happy when strikers don't play".

But his first goal of the new campaign could prove one of his most important already as Arsenal clawed their way back twice to kick-start their season.

"We've been courageous to the end and thank God we won the game", he added.
