Arsenal score two late goals for comeback win vs. Leicester City

The Gunners got off to the flawless start, with record-signing Alexandre Lacazette scoring after just 94 seconds, via his his first-ever shot in the Premier League.

'A player I am a big fan of, ' is how Jamie Carragher described Olivier Giroud on Friday night. At some stage, I opened the door for him because I knew that I had many strikers.

The last player to score a goal faster on their Premier League debut was Thievy Bifouma, who came on for his Premier League debut for West Brom at half-time and scored after just 36 seconds in a 3-1 defeat at Crystal Palace in February 2014.

The presence of Lacazette among forward options including Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck, who impressed and netted Arsenal's second, led Wenger into a frank conversation with Giroud.

"For example, hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we spent this season". We put our bodies in we made some important tackles and eventually we got the goal because we were patient.

United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley told NBC's "Today" show that she isn't sure whether the sanctions will work. President Donald Trump, no fan of leaks himself, retweeted the report written largely from anonymous sources.

Lacazette almost had his second of the night just minutes later, but Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel turned the shot aside, but Giroud beat the Dane with an exquisite header on the ensuing corner to give Arsenal the 4-3 victory. Will the Gunners be able to challenge for the title this season? After Aaron Ramsey levelled in the 83rd minute, Giroud sealed the three points within two minutes on an evening of thrilling attacks gifted by fragile defending. He doesn't want to leave and I'm happy he wants to stay. We love him and in the end he made a decision to stay. Unfortunately they didn't go in but we can take a lot of positives.

I'm not saying he should be Arsenal's number one striker; that wouldn't be enough if Arsenal were trying to win a Premier League or Champions League which a club of this size should be.

Tonight's victor was his 70th Premier League goal - coming at the start of his sixth season. Firstly I very much doubt that we will see a back three of Holding, Monreal and Kolasinac together very often and maybe not in the Premier League for the rest of the season.

"Character wise, we have been great tonight". What the game was, though, is a reminder that beyond the incessant transfer rumours and long, moody shots of Arsene Wenger staring into nothingness awaits the adrenaline rush that only a good game of football can give.
