Arsenal To Make Alexis Sanchez Premier League's Highest-paid Player

Olivier Giroud's late header saw Arsenal to a stunning 4-3 win over Leicester City on Friday, as the Premier League returned with gusto at the Emirates Stadium.

This time previous year, Leicester's players were returning to the Premier League as defending champions and getting ready to launch the club's first-ever foray into the Champions League. First Aaron Ramsey smashed home an equaliser in the 83rd minute, before Giroud powered a header into the top corner a couple of minutes later to complete an incredible fightback.

"Overall I must say we kept going and the spirit of the team was absolutely outstanding and overall you could say as well we were punished on every single mistake tonight by a Leicester team who was very efficient going forward", said Wenger.

"We are open to an exceptional player", he said.

"We conceded three goals, yes, but we scored four goals as well and the game was of quality".

The France worldwide, who moved to the Gunners for a club-record deal this summer, scored 28 goals from 2,408 minutes of action in Ligue 1 last season.

Arsenal plays Leicester at home on Friday in the opening game of the league season.

Wenger, who signed a new two-year deal at the club, insists the victory at Wembley has strengthened the confidence in his squad but has warned against complacency when they take on Leicester after a number of opening day set-backs in recent seasons.

The fans at the Emirates were getting their first glimpse of Lacazette in a competitive game and the £46.5 million ($60.3 million, 51.1 million euros) man needed less than two minutes to find the net. Following a short corner on the left, Marc Albrighton's deep cross was headed back across goal by Harry Maguire and Okazaki leapt to nod a header past Petr Cech.

Despite all Arsenal's pressure they went behind in the 35th minute.

Albrighton crossed for Jamie Vardy to put Leicester ahead after Xhaka had gifted the ball straight to him.

Giroud then sent the previously despondent Arsenal fans wild when he headed the victor from a corner, Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel only managing to turn the ball onto the underside of the bar before it bounced over the line.

Ramsey was the scorer, courtesy of a superb finish after an even better pass from Xhaka. He scored 129 times in 275 games for Lyon so has a big reputation. Also, he added few more that Mahrez will not be allowed to go from this club until we get a reasonable offer.
