Giroud hands Arsenal dramatic win over Leicester city

Anthony Martial plays for Manchester United versus West Ham in the Premier League

Record signing Alexander Lacazette opened his account within two minutes of the kick-off, but the home side's lead was nearly immediately rubbed out as Shinji Okazaki equalised minutes later before Jamie Vardy put the visitors in front after half an hour.

But the Gunners rallied right until the very end and substitutesRamsey and iroud turned the game on its head in the final 10 minutes.

"Overall I must say we kept going and the spirit of the team was absolutely outstanding", he said in his post-match interview.

Arsenal's German midfielder Mesut Ozil prepares to shoot during the English Premier League football match between Arsenal and Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium in London on Saturday.

This was only the sixth time that an opening game in a Premier League season has seen seven goals scored- no game has seen more.

The Gunners won the FA Cup last season and lifted the Community Shield last weekend after beating Chelsea at Wembley.

Two minutes later, the comeback was complete, with super-sub Giroud sending the home fans wild via magnificent header from a Xhaka corner, despite being held by Wes Morgan.


Within three minutes Leicester were level.

Arsenal's win leaves them at the top of the table, for now. Cech was unconvincing for Leicester's 2nd goal after he hesitated to come out to meet Marc Albrighton's cross, which Vardy converted to make it 1-2.

The Frenchman wants to see the Gunners' record signing Alexandre Lacazette emulate what the 35-year-old former Sweden global striker did in the Premier League.

Arsenal wanted a penalty for handball against Wilfred Ndidi with referee Mike Dean unmoved, but the equaliser came on the stroke of half-time after Kolasinac squared to Welbeck with the goal gaping.

Vardy scored again on the other side of halftime after 56 minutes to put Leicester ahead once more.

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.

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