Giroud's late goal powers Arsenal past Leicester City

Wenger braced for knife-edge Arsenal season

Wenger braced for knife-edge Arsenal season

Super-sub Olivier Giroud struck a late victor as Arsenal came from behind to beat Leicester in an unforgettable opening Premier League match.

Jamie Vardy made it 2-1 with an easy tap in the 29th minute but Danny Welbeck restored parity for the Gunners just before half time.

But Arsenal's pressure in the final half hour turned the game back their way and Aaron Ramsey equalised with seven minutes remaining before Giroud headed the 85th minute victor.

And it appears the competition is now down to him and Osweiler. "It's still too soon", he said Friday on a conference call. NOTES: S Ibraheim Campbell is in the concussion protocol after suffering a head injury on the game's second play.

The lead unfortunately wouldn't last long as Leicester City eventually equalized just two minutes later, but the memory is one that both Lacazette and Arsenal fans will hold onto, as their new boy provided plenty of promise for the coming season.

The pressure eventually told as, in the space of two minutes late on, Ramsey controlled Granit Xhaka's pass and smartly tucked past Schmeichel, before fellow sub Giroud headed in off the bar from a corner to earn maximum points for his side.

"I opened the door for him at some stage as I had many strikers and it's important for him to play but I don't want him to go".

The energy producer reported ($0.30) earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, missing the consensus estimate of ($0.12) by $0.18. Finally, Sanders Morris Harris Inc. increased its position in shares of Sanchez Energy Corporation by 6.4% in the first quarter.

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

Asked if Giroud could still leave before the transfer window closes on August 31 until January, Wenger replied: "No". He doesn't want to leave and I'm happy that he wants to stay.

Leicester showed some of the form that won them the title in 2016 and helped stave off relegation last term but in the end they were undone by canny France global Giroud who has been linked with a move away from Arsenal all summer. "We were quite good a year ago on corners and overall I believe that with a bit of work we can get that out of the system", the French coach added.

But Arsenal entered the match with a dismal record of one win, three losses and three draws in their last seven season openers.
