Alexandre Lacazette makes his competitive debut for Arsenal in this evening's Premier League clash against Leicester City.

Despite conceding three goals against Leicester, goalkeeper Petr Cech on Saturday hailed Arsenal's "beautiful" come-from-behind 4-3 Premier League victory on Friday night.

The Frenchman and fellow substitute Aaron Ramsay scored in the final seven minutes as Arsenal twice came from behind, the Welshman levelling two minutes before Giroud headed the decider.

The Chile worldwide has been linked with a move away from the club this summer with less than a year remaining on his current deal at the Emirates Stadium and could walk away for free at the end of the upcoming season.

Giroud, 30, started just 11 Premier League matches last season and scored 12 goals.

"It's an unbelievable opportunity for him", Henry told Sky Sports.
