Arsenal 4-3 Leicester - The Premier League Is Well And Truly Back

Marquee summer signing Alexandre Lacazette shot Arsenal into an early lead before Shinji Okazaki levelled the scores five minutes later.

Arsenal appeared a step behind defensively, ceding possession nearly uncontested at moments, and Marc Albrighton would make them pay, jumping on a misplayed ball from Arsenal and sending a lovely cross to Jamie Vardy who would put it away to give Leicester City their first lead of the campaign.

Wenger revealed after the win that he offered Giroud the chance to leave the club this summer, but that the striker opted to stay, much to the delight of the manager.

"I felt that to lose tonight would have been awful 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 bad", he said.

"He made a decision to stay and it was one of the great days of recent weeks for me". I know how important he is not only as a player - he's a fantastic player - but also in the group he has a big weight.
