Arsenal's new €53 million man enjoys dream start to Premier League life

Two late goals, one from Aaron Ramsey and one from Olivier Giroud, brought the Gunners back from a one-goal deficit in the final 10 minutes, giving the club a positive result to start the season.

The 30-year-old has been linked with the likes of West Ham, Everton and Marseille since the arrival of club-record signing Lacazette but Wenger is pleased the former Montpellier man has opted to stay put.

The guests capitalised on the abundant mistakes from Arsenal players and their sloppy defending as Jamie Vardy eventually made it 2-1 from Marc Albrighton's cross around the half-hour mark.

One new recruit, defender Harry Maguire, felt Leicester gave the hosts a run for their money and - despite heading back to the east midlands with nothing to show for it - believes the display will hold them in good stead.

Lacazette is simple in every game.

Giroud, who had a hard time getting into the starting XI last season as Wenger preferred to play Alexis Sanchez as the lone striker, has been vocal in his desire to play more games from start.

With Giroud replacing Holding, Wenger switched the formation from a 3-4-2-1 to a 4-4-2 with Giroud and Lacazette up front. We have many games and hopefully I can give games to all the strikers.

The Emirates was absolutely hopping at this stage and there was only ever going to be one outcome, the often maligned, Olivier Giroud, like Ramsey before him, came off the bench and scored the victor to send the stadium into raptures.

"The first goal was from a short corner and we were not focused enough". He doesn't want to leave, but at some stage I opened the door for him because I had many strikers.

The Gunners have reinforced their team with the likes of French striker Alexandre Lacazette and Bosnian left back Sead Kolasinac.

Giroud also spoke to reporters, saying he's hoping for a bigger role in the future after coming on as a substitute on Friday: "That's a nice start, but obviously I prefer to be on the pitch. We were a threat and played football and contributed to a thoroughly entertaining game".

Arsene Wenger has told Arsenal fans that he is still on the lookout for one more "exceptional" player in the summer transfer window.

"Overall we looked better defensively at the end of the [2016-2017] season". "I don't know whether it was lack of concentration or game management".
