Wenger Confirms Olivier Giroud Will Stay At Arsenal

However, the lack of organisation at the back coupled with far too many errors on display on Friday night will worry the Arsenal boss, as well as the club's world-weary fans.

The Gunners' performance will have installed confidence in the team as they won their Premier League opening fixture for the fourth time in the past five years.

Ibrahimovic's made the move from Ligue 1 to the English top flight last season, and managed to score 17 goals in 28 league appearances for the Red Devils, a return Wenger feels his new striker should try and match.

Shinji Okazaki cancelled out Lacazette's opener with a close-range header after Maguire had been left unmarked to nod Marc Albrighton's deep cross back across goal.

Unfortunately, Arsenal will be missing star player Alexis Sanchez to injury and Leicester will be missing summer signing Iborra to a groin injury during training for the upcoming season.

But his first goal of the new campaign could prove one of his most important already as Arsenal clawed their way back twice to kick-start their season. We had some avoidable goals which we conceded and overall we have to work on that. 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. "We have to be positive as it's the first game".

"I love the man and the player, he doesn't want to leave and I'm happy he wants to stay".

"I think we have all seen the amusing business of the transfer window and we never know what is round the corner".

"I prefer to be on the pitch", the 30-year-old Giroud said, "but as much as I can I try to help the team reach its target".

"Tonight we needed this win and everyone knows the first game is important for the confidence".
