Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud came off the bench to rescue Arsenal a 4-3 win over Leicester City in a thrilling start to the 2017-18 Premier League season on Friday night.

And, speaking after the game, the 30-year-old confirmed his intention to stay and fight for his place at Emirates Stadium.

"He doesn't want to leave and I'm happy he wants to stay".

Asked if Giroud could still leave before the transfer window closes on August 31 until January, Wenger replied: "No".

"Not only as a player, he is a fantastic player, b ut as well in the group - he has a big weight in the squad and it was a relief for me that he made a decision to stay".

"At one stage I opened the door for him as I knew I had many strikers, and in the end he chose to stay", said Wenger.

"No. It's a determined no", he said.

It's only the second time in eight seasons that Arsene Wenger's side have secured three points in their opening fixture.

"We went for a win and we deservedly earned it".

"The second goal was scored after a poor pass, which can happen, but we conceded the other two after corners".

"If you look at the third goal, I'm a bit disappointed with the handball leading up to it but that aside, once you get the corner, you have to defend it better".

Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare was also pleased - even if the Foxes headed back to the East Midlands with nothing to show for their evening's endeavour. I thought Rob Holding might get hooked, as he's looked the most uncomfortable in an Arsenal back three that struggled collectively on the back foot throughout the first half. "Ultimately, it wasn't that which cost us, it was the set plays".

Craig Shakespeare's side boasted numerous players, and characteristics, that saw them shock the world to win the title in 2015/16.

When asked if he expected Mahrez to stay, he said: "Who knows?" Riyad has been very focused.

Now with a freaky back four of (from right to left) Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Monreal, Kolasinac and Hector Bellerin, Arsenal pushed for an equaliser, and on 83 minutes it came.
