Why I didn't quit Arsenal this summer - Giroud

Manchester United reject Tottenham bid for Anthony Martial on the eve of Premier League opener

The goal also continued Lacazette's phenomenal record in the first game of top-flight seasons over recent years - one he might need to add to after Leicester forwards Shinji Okazaki and Jamie Vardy turned the game on its head.

In the league's first Friday night start, Arsene Wenger's side was trailing 3-2 with seven minutes remaining but Ramsey grabbed the equaliser and Giroud headed in an 85th-minute victor.

The France global came off the bench to head home in the 85th minute as the Gunners kicked off the Premier League season with a thrilling 4-3 win.

Arsenal welcomed Leicester City into Emirates Stadium on Friday to get the festivities rolling this season, and it appeared as if everyone would get a chance to use their Arsenal jokes for at least the next week.

The Gunners got off to the ideal start, with record-signing Alexandre Lacazette scoring after just 94 seconds, via his his first-ever shot in the Premier League.

The moves paid off, with Ramsey equalizing in the 83rd minute and Giroud sending the Emirates crowd home ecstatic with a goal two minutes later to give Arsenal a lead that they would not give up, earning the Gunners three points and a short-lived stint at the top of the table before the rest of the league kicks off this weekend. It's interesting. Let's say the referee tends to let play continue. and you only really understand that when you experience it.

Asked if there was any update on Sanchez's situation, Wenger replied: "No".

"I love the man and the player", said Wenger.

"To be honest, there was something in my soul and in my heart which told me to stay".

"I think we have all seen the amusing business of the transfer window and we never know what is round the corner. We love him and in the end he made a decision to stay". But Leicester, which so astonishingly won the league in 2016, couldn't hold on for its first win at Arsenal since 1973.

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

"I feel as well that the goals we conceded, we can work together to get rid of that because one was a corner, one was a ball we lost in the build up and the third goal was on a corner again, so we conceded two goals on corners".
