Wenger: Lacazette Has Gotten Stronger Since He Has Joined Us

The Gunners got the 2017-18 season underway with a thrilling encounter with Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium on Friday. They would look at it and ask why the club are selling him to a Premier League rival.

"We're not going to be too down-hearted".

Giroud celebrates the late victor. Is he be the new Thierry Henry?

Wenger said he gave Giroud the option to leave for another club this summer in search of more regular playing time but was thrilled when the striker chose to stay. Both incidents prompted cheers from across the Emirates. Man. Utd struggled to score goals in the past season due to lack of a finisher. But Welbeck had the last word of the first half for the home side when he equalised from close range in added time after new signing Sead Kolasinac's tap forward in a goalmouth melee. It was a confident debut. The latter will also miss influential midfielder Danny Drinkwater in the opener to a thigh injury.

Arsenal have refused to consider selling the forward, who hit 24 goals in 38 league games last term, a tally bettered only by Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku in the English top flight.

Wenger also dismissed media reports linking Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain with rivals Chelsea. Five minutes to go.

Olivier Giroud has confirmed that he will stay at Arsenal after netting a dramatic victor in their opening day Premier League victory over Leicester City.

"The players are champing at the bit to get started", he said. New signing Lacazette took no time scoring in front of his new fans as he scored a true strikers goal.

Maguire showed he's up to speed with the Foxes' plan shortly before half-time when he turned down two short passing options to casually knock the ball along the left-hand touchline into 30 yards of space. The Toffees sold Romelu Lukaku for 75 million pounds to Manchester United and have invested the money wisely, bringing in Wayne Rooney, Michael Keane, Davy Klaassen, Jordan Pickford and Sandro Ramirez making them one of the teams to look out for this season.

But it was a more traditional left-wing cross that produced Leicester's second.

The ruthless Jamie Vardy took advantage of Arsenal's shoddy defending twice - he stunned the Gunners with an emphatic kick in the first half and a delightful header in the second. He rose highest to flick in a right-wing, near-post corner from Mahrez to put Leicester 3-2 ahead.

It meant Arsenal get over an old problem, for an invigorating new feeling - they just have to address a few other problems to make sure that feeling endures.

Liverpool are in a serious battle to keep their best player as Barcelona have set their sights on the Brazilian to replace Neymar.
