Wenger 'relieved' Giroud stayed at Arsenal after victor against Leicester

At one stage, I opened the door for him as I knew I had many strikers, and in the end he made a decision to stay.

"There was something in my soul and in my heart which told me to stay", the French worldwide is quoted as saying by the Daily Star. He's a fantastic player, but as well he has a big weight in this squad.

"There was something in my soul and in my heart which told me to stay. We kept the faith and kept believing in our game to push hard", said Giroud who has vowed to fight for his place. The 30-year-old striker has been linked with West Ham United, Everton and Marseille since the arrival of club-record signing Lacazette.

"Previously in the Premier League we've not got off to the best of starts, so it meant a lot for us to get a good start and get three points today".

The Arsenal legend says that Lacazette is "very neat, very clean" in whatever he does, but will take time for Arsenal to supply him with the right service. "He is a collective player, an intelligent player as well".

He responded promisingly to Leicester's first equaliser by just missing the net, which happened a few times within the match and led to the England global becoming more visibly frustrated on the pitch.

With Leicester City up 3-2 in the second half, after Jamie Vardy's second gave the Foxes back the lead they had given up on the stroke of halftime, Craig Shakespeare hooked off midfielder Matty James in the 82nd minute for Kelechi Iheanacho, a pacy forward.

After Wilfred Ndidi had survived a penalty shout for handball, Arsenal levelled in first-half stoppage time, Danny Welbeck tapping in from Kolasinac's square pass after Lacazette's shot was blocked.

"We let in some goals we could have avoided but we'll work to ensure we don't concede any more like that during the season. One was a corner, one on build-up, one on a corner again", he said.

"We were quite good previous year on corners". All superb players, all significant improvements, all failed to solve all of the problems within Arsenal's side.

The Swiss midfield enforcer played 96 passes, played six crosses, and provided two assists in the game, to help his side get over the line with a 4-3 margin.
