  • Wenger braced for knife-edge Arsenal season Sport- International

Substitute Olivier Giroud scored a late victor as Arsenal staged a dramatic fightback to kick off the new Premier League season with a pulsating 4-3 victory against Leicester City on Friday night.

Giroud outmuscled Harry Maguire to meet Granit Xhaka's corner with a strong header that hit the bar and bounced behind the line before Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel could club it away.

Sanchez missed Arsenal's scintillating start to the new Premier League season, an abdominal injury forcing him to sit out the 4-3 victory over Leicester.

In what was a roller-coaster start to their league campaign, the Gunners were twice pegged back by a spirited Leicester side before substitutes Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud stepped in to save Arsene Wenger's blushes with seven minutes of normal time remaining.

"With Lacazette, it is simple", the French tactician said, as quoted by FourFourTwo. Even people will say we conceded three goals, yes, but we scored four as well and the game was of quality. Overall I believe that it's down to us.

"He is an intelligent player who can integrate our game well as we have a game backed on mobility, technique".

However, Danny Welbeck levelled up before the interval, but Vardy grabbed his second minutes after the break.

`Injured` Sanchez ruled out of start of Arsenal's PL campaign
We have a game backed on mobility and technique and I think he can integrate that well. Intriguingly, it is a former Arsenal forward with whom Lacazette now shares his record.

Arsenal came out the second half still struggling and Leicester scored their second goal from a corner to make it 2-3 in the 56th minute.

The France worldwide 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.

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

"We were quite good previous year on corners". It can happen in pre-season and anyway, I don't think I would have included him on Friday night.

Wenger reassured that his compatriot Giroud will not be leaving the club this transfer window despite losing his starting role to their record summer signing Alexandre Lacazette who opened his English Premier League goal account in the match against Leicester City.

Jamie Vardy was adjudged the Man of the Match in the game.
