Wenger lauds Giroud after thrilling win over Leicester

Carl Jenkinson of Arsenal is put under pressure from Anthony Martial of Manchester United during the Premier League match between Manchester United and Arsenal at Old Trafford

"We have to take the positives out of the game, we have gone toe-to-toe with Arsenal over 90 minutes and I don't think many teams will come here and do that".

At 3-2 up the Foxes looked set for a surprise win that would have sent shockwaves throughout the league but Aaron Ramsey's composed finished and Giroud's header meant Arsene Wenger started his 21st campaign in charge of Arsenal with a win. The two sides have both figured in the transfer market as well, with Arsenal signing Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac while holding onto Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez (thus far, anyhow), while Leicester has brought in Kelechi Iheanacho from Manchester City and is widely expected to be dealing Riyad Mahrez prior to the August 31 deadline. Even after Danny Welbeck levelled on the stroke of halftime, Vardy restored Leicester's lead after the break. Yet somehow they still grabbed all three points to keep the feel-good factor intact.

"It's simple, in every game he is stronger since he joined us", Wenger said.

Schmeichel thwarted Oxlade-Chamberlain and Bellerin before Wenger turned to his bench in the 67th minute, pitching Ramsey and Giroud into the fray in place of Elneny and Rob Holding. They have won only once in their last seven opening-day games - a 2-1 victory against Crystal Palace in 2014 - and have not lost three consecutive opening-day games since 1960.

Speaking after Arsenal's dramatic 4-3 victory over Leicester City where Giroud came off the bench to score a late victor, Wenger was delighted with his forwards attitude.

The guests needed only 10 minutes to regain their lead after the restart as Vardy headed in Riyad Mahrez's cross to score his side's third goal and complete his brace.

"You could see that this team has quality and is used to playing together, but (we had) 70 per cent possession with 27 shots on goal". To lose in the manner we did is very disappointing.

"At the moment, sitting here, I've got a dejected dressing room".

Lacazette scores the season's opening goal.

Arsenal is not just pursuing a first league title since 2004 but also a return to the top four " and Champions League qualification " after finishing fifth in May.

Leicester showed plenty of endeavour as they came close to causing an upset in the Premier League's first fixture.

Lacazette, a club-record £46.5 million ($60.3 million, 51.1 million euros) signing from Lyon, made a dream start to his home debut by heading Arsenal in front with just 85 seconds on the clock.
