Record signing Alexander Lacazette opened his account within two minutes of the kick-off, but the home side's lead was nearly immediately rubbed out as Shinji Okazaki equalised minutes later before Jamie Vardy put the visitors in front after half an hour.

Giroud was quick to hail it and told Sky Sports after the match: "Obviously I knew that I was going to have a chance so we tried to push".

After his late goal many Arsenal fans took to social media to react where they stated that Arsene Wenger should never sell the forward, while other supporters compared him to the likes of club legend Thierry Henry.

Arsenal record-signing Alexandre Lacazette launched his English league career in style by heading in the opener after 94 seconds.

The France worldwide came off the bench to head home in the 85th minute as the Gunners kicked off the Premier League season with a thrilling 4-3 win. First came in Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud in the 67th minute.

Both teams will look to forget their dismal performances last season as Arsenal dropped out of the Top 4 after 20 successful seasons of staying at the top and Leicester remained at 12th place, out of the top 10.

"He doesn't want to leave and I'm happy that he wants to stay".

"When you are not completely in or the players feel you are not completely in, it is hard to tell them we go (out to win). It was relief he made a decision to stay".

I'm not saying he should be Arsenal's number one striker; that wouldn't be enough if Arsenal were trying to win a Premier League or Champions League which a club of this size should be. He'll play 30 games, he'll give you 15 goals. Cech was unconvincing for Leicester's 2nd goal after he hesitated to come out to meet Marc Albrighton's cross, which Vardy converted to make it 1-2.

"Tonight we needed this win and everyone knows the first game is important for the confidence". "You want the Premier League to be the best league in the world and I think it has to produce this kind of games to produce interest and quality", he said.
