Arsenal 4 Leicester City 3: Giroud settles remarkable opening night thriller

Leicester City FC news Craig Shakespeare targets end to Arsenal hoodoo in Premier League opener

Wenger said former Lyon forward Lacazette should be targeting a similar return, having scored 37 goals across all competitions in 2016-17 before his reported €60million switch."With Lacazette it is simple", Wenger said ahead of Friday's Premier League opener against Leicester City.

Wenger shuffled his pack and Aaron Ramsey levelled with eight minutes remaining before fellow substitute Giroud wrapped up the points.

"Why hasn't he just said I'm staying for one more season?"

"You know when you have good players that there might be interest from other clubs but I wouldn't sleep at night if all the scenarios that you (the media) put to me happened".

"Not only as a player, he is a fantastic player, but as well in the group - he has a big weight in the squad and it was a relief for me that he chose to stay".

The Gunners' record signing brought Emirates Stadium to its feet by steering Mohamed Elneny's cross past Kasper Schmeichel. "Maybe I made a mistake", Wenger said after Arsenal beat Chelsea on penalties in last weekend's Community Shield.

Football is used to watching successful centre-back, centre-midfield or centre-forward pairings - but Arsenal's manager-defender duo of Arsene Wenger and Per Mertesacker is something else.

"I think we have all seen the amusing business of the transfer window and we never know what is round the corner". I think we've got owners who want to keep their best players. "He is a collective player, an intelligent player as well".

"We conceded three goals, yes, but we scored four goals as well and the game was of quality".

"If you were a manager, you're on the bench when you're 3-2 down with 20 minutes to go, and you win 4-3, you're more happy than concerned", Wenger said. One was a corner, one was a ball we lost in the build-up and the third goal was a corner again.

"We were quite good previous year on corners and overall I believe that with a bit of work we can get that out of the system".

"We've got our first game this Friday coming and we can't wait to get started".

Play resumes with no changes in personnel on either side.

"At the moment, sitting here, I've got a dejected dressing room".
