Wenger gives update on Giroud's future at Arsenal after Leicester City winner

15 August 2017

Just as the atmosphere had turned sour, goals to Aaron Ramsey, assisted by Granit Xhaka, and Olivier Giroud allowed Arsenal to hold on in the last five minutes to grab a courageous victory.

Giroud scored the victor in Arsenal's thrilling 4-3 win over Leicester on Friday night at the Emirates Stadium after the Gunners entered the final ten minutes trailing 3-2 to the Foxes.

Arsene Wenger in an interview with SFR Sport, says he's an Arsenal player for the short term, but he's not sure if the club will be able to extend his contract.

"You want the Premier League to be the best league in the world and I think it has to produce these kind of games to produce interest and quality", he added.

Arsenal 4-3 Leicester - The Premier League Is Well And Truly Back
This was only the sixth time that an opening game in a Premier League season has seen seven goals scored- no game has seen more. Harry Maguire nodded Marc Albrighton's cross back into the path of Okazaki who headed Leicester level.

While Lacazette's goal was fantastic, it resulted in a number of other players' efforts being overlooked and unrecognised. It was a relief for me he chose to stay.

A crossfield ball found Hector Bellerin on the right, with the full-back playing the ball back to Mohamed Elneny, who floated in a first-time cross.

"Even when he played on the left, he did very well". We're waiting to see when the major deals go through - Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona, Gylfi Sigurdsson to Everton - and then Mahrez comes into play. "He is a collective player, an intelligent player as well".

Marc Albrighton's deep cross caught out the Arsenal backline, including goalkeeper Petr Cech, and led to Harry Maguire's knock-down finding Okazaki, who made no mistake with his close-range header.

The two teams combined for an instant classic, as the Gunners rallied for two goals in the final 10 minutes to stun the Leicester 4-3.

'It is great for us, him finding the net early in the season and hopefully it will lead to more'. Arsenal were twice behind against Craig Shakespeare's side.

But he drew encouragement from his side's display. Not that it's a positive or a negative, it's just the way the game is and you get used to it.

'I'm sure he will be delighted to get off the mark. "To come here and score three has to be pleasing in some respect, but it doesn't feel like it". He can be a nuisance for defenders.
