A feast of goals opened the Premier League season when Arsenal twice came from behind to beat Leicester City 4-3 with substitute Olivier Giroud heading a late victor.

In the league's first Friday night start, Arsene Wenger's side was trailing 3-2 with seven minutes remaining but Ramsey grabbed the equaliser and Giroud headed in an 85th-minute victor.

Shinji Okazaki scored a fifth minute equaliser, Jamie Vardy put Leicester ahead and Danny Welbeck levelled for Arsenal before halftime.

Vardy's second goal, a towering header from a corner-kick, looked to have won it for the Foxes until the sensational finale that saw the game swing in Arsenal's favour.

But the home side's pressure in the final half hour turned the game back their way and Ramsey equalised with a shot from close range with seven minutes remaining.

Arsène Wenger expressed his relief that Olivier Giroud, widely considered this summer to be either on the move or a player destined to be not much more than a supersub, remains very much at the heart of life at Arsenal.

Giroud came big for the Gunners once again. "He chose to stay and it was one of the great days of recent weeks for me".

"You know, I must say I opened the door for him at some stage because I know that it's important for him to play. But he's really loved here, we love him, and in the end he's made a decision to stay".

The 2016 PFA Player of the Season had always been linked with a move to the Gunners and looks set to leave the Foxes this term, however it seems that Arsene Wenger is not keen.

"He is an intelligent player who can integrate our game well as we have a game backed on mobility, technique".

"If you look at the third goal, I'm a bit disappointed with the handball leading up to it but that aside, once you get the corner, you have to defend it better".

"After that we get the efficiency". We encourage our midfield players to play balls in behind.
