  • Carl Jenkinson of Arsenal is put under pressure from Anthony Martial of Manchester United during the Premier League match between Manchester United and Arsenal at Old Trafford

In the league's first Friday night start, Arsene Wenger's side was trailing 3-2 with seven minutes remaining but Ramsey grabbed the equaliser and Giroud headed in an 85th-minute victor.

Despite conceding three goals against Leicester, goalkeeper Petr Cech on Saturday hailed Arsenal's "beautiful" come-from-behind 4-3 Premier League victory on Friday night.

While Arsenal won just their second opening fixture in the last eight years, they were pushed all the way by the Foxes, who had led twice during a frenetic evening at the Emirates Stadium.

Alexandre Lacazette opened the scoring after just two minutes, before Shinji Okazaki equalised for Leicester and Jamie Vardy put them ahead.

Olivier Giroud came off the bench to head a late victor after Aaron Ramsey had brought Arsenal level at 3-3 following a Jamie Vardy double for the visitors.

But after deciding to stick it out for a sixth season at Arsenal, Giroud was the north London club's match-winner on the opening day of the new Premier League campaign after coming off the bench. It's interesting. Let's say the referee tends to let play continue. and you only really understand that when you experience it. "I know how important he is not only as a player but also in the group". "He has a big weight in the squad and it was a relief for me that he chose to stay".

"We saw it though for 83 minutes", Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare said, "and to concede two late set-plays in the manner we did is obviously hard to take". Giroud is in his prime, at the top of his game.

"It's simple, in every game he is stronger since he joined us", Wenger said.

"I felt that to lose tonight would have been bad for us because we had such good preparation and to sit there in the morning and think we had lost at home would have been awful", he said.

"You win 4-3, you're more happy than concerned, you know", he added.

"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".
