Cech : Arsenal's goalkeeper hails 'beautiful' Leicester game

Anthony Martial in action

Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Friday night's match-winner Olivier Giroud has chose to stay at Arsenal next season, ending interest from Everton, West Ham United and Marseille.

Arsene Wenger has praised Arsenal's team spirit and willingness to fight after they came from behind twice to beat Leicester City 4-3 in their Premier League season opener on Friday night (11 August).

Such an effort provoked scenes of sheer jubilation at the Emirates Stadium and came just two minutes after fellow substitute Aaron Ramsey looked to have rescued a point for the inconsistent Gunners after blasting in from close range.

The impressive Vardy scored his second in the 53rd minute to put Leicester in front once more, curling Riyad Mahrez's corner into the bottom far corner amid poor Arsenal marking.

Alexandre Lacazette headed the Gunners ahead 94 seconds into his top-flight debut, only for Shinji Okazaki to nod in an equaliser just two minutes later.

To convince Nigerians that he is strong, the president walked like a soldier in front of his media team who all laughed. President Buhari has spent more time since the beginning of 2017 in Britain than in Nigeria. "May God reward them".

"I opened the door for him at some stage as it's important for him to play but I don't want him to go", Wenger said at the post-match news conference.

"He is really loved here, we love him and, in the end, he chose to stay". I know how important he is not only as a player - he's a fantastic player - but also in the group he has a big weight. "He has a big weight in this squad and it was a relief for me that he made a decision to stay".

However, Wenger insists that Giroud will remain in north London beyond the end of the transfer window despite being given the opportunity to move on and seek more regular football elsewhere. "We were quite good a year ago on corners and overall I believe that with a bit of work we can get that out of the system", the French coach added.

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