Substitute Olivier Giroud headed in a dramatic late victor as Arsenal fought back to beat Leicester City in a thrilling start to the 2017-18 Premier League season.

Alexandre Lacazette's arrival has bumped Giroud even further down the Arsenal pecking order, but having given the 30-year-old the chance to leave, Wenger was thrilled he chose to stay.

Arsene Wenger: "I had an impact on the season, because at some stage the players came to see me and said, "What's going on boss?"

The Gunners had won just one of their last seven opening-day fixtures and looked destined to start another campaign slowly as the 2015-16 champions took the lead twice only to lose 4-3.

"Not only as a player, he is a fantastic player, but as well in the group".

"We started really well and I thought we could stay in control".

Wenger, who has repeatedly insisted the Chile worldwide will stay in north London, was eager to stress that Sanchez's absence from training was due to an abdominal strain he picked up before the game against Chelsea in the Community Shield.

Club record signing Alexandre Lacazette gave Arsenal an early lead on his league debut before Shinji Okazaki and Jamie Vardy put Leicester ahead.

We haven't been able to beat them yet but there's always a first time and it would be nice to think it would be Friday night.

Responding to the so-called incursion, China's foreign ministry said it "severely harmed China's sovereignty and security". The reef is an artificial island built by China in the Spratly Islands, known by China as the Nansha Islands.

"He can play on the left side but also in central defence. But we have all the other players prepared in pre-season and they are all ready". "He is a collective player, an intelligent player as well".

Amid the joy - and relief - of victory, there was nonetheless plenty to concern Wenger, not least the manner in which his side conceded all three goals.

Vardy slid the visitors ahead from Marc Albrighton's cross, only for Danny Welbeck to stroke level on half-time.

Olivier Giroud celebrates his winning goal against Leicester yesterday.

Vardy made the most of some really poor zonal marking by Arsenal which allowed him to head in the ball behind Petr Cech on a corner by Riyad Mahrez.

"If you were a manager, you're 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", Wenger said.

"I think we have all seen the amusing business of the transfer window and we never know what is round the corner".

Did Mesut Ozil handball in the build-up to Arsenal's third goal?

"We were quite good last year on corners and with a bit of work we can get that out of our system", added Wenger, who has been given another two years in charge of Arsenal. United was not so impressive in the Premier League last season and played 15 draws alone.
