Giroud's late goal powers Arsenal past Leicester City

Despite Arsenal creating a number of chances, Jamie Vardy gave Leicester a 2-1 lead against the run of play, midway through the first half, as the Gunners' defence struggled to cope with crosses.

However, following yesterday's opening Premier League encounter against Leicester City, a game in which Giroud scored the victor, he confirmed he meant to stay at Arsenal.

The England global, who scored twice in the game, watched helplessly as Arsenal came from 3-2 down to grab an incredible 4-3 victory over the Foxes. At some stage, I opened the door for him because I knew that I had many strikers.

Giroud has often been a figure of ridicule and has copped plenty of criticism during his tenure in England but his record is one of a dedicated servant to Arsenal.

But if Wenger plays two strikers then Giroud, with his physical presence, would be a really good complement to Lacazette, a lethal goalscorer that loves getting the ball inside the box.

In his post-match reaction, Arsenal boss Wenger was understandably delighted with how his new signing was settling into proceedings.

While Lacazette netted the opener after two minutes against Leicester on Friday, a collapse left Arsenal trailing with seven minutes remaining.

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

"Not only as a player, he is a fantastic player, but as well in the group".

"To win like we did will only strengthen it and overall we have good ingredients in the squad and it is a good opportunity again to show it away from home".

"With Lacazette, it is simple", the French tactician said, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

"It is a relief and I believe as well a reminder to the players that they have hurdles on the way and that we can get round it, like tonight so that is quite positive". We have a game backed on mobility and technique and I think he can integrate that well. "To come here and score three has to be pleasing in some respect, but it doesn't feel like it".

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.
