Olivier Giroud has confirmed that he will stay at Arsenal after netting a dramatic victor in their opening day Premier League victory over Leicester City.

"Giroud? He's fantastic", Wenger said of the France global, who usually started on the bench last season and had been linked with a move away from The Emirates.

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

Heading into the game, Arsenal had won just one of their previous seven opening day fixtures but Welbeck was pleased with the spirit shown to turn this clash in their favour.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 live, Ornstein said: "It's very unlikely Arsenal will sign him now".

'We have to take the positives out of the game, we have gone toe-to-toe with Arsenal over 90 minutes and I don't think many teams will come here and do that.

Arsenal striker Welbeck hails 'beast' Kolasinac after stunning Leicester win
Arsenal have made a decision to hand Premier League debuts to both Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac as the Gunners open their new domestic campaign at home to Leicester City this evening.

Alexandre Lacazette marked his league debut for Arsenal with a goal on 94 seconds only for Shinji Okazaki to level less than three minutes later.

If you bet £25 on any player to top the table at the end of the season, we'll give a £5 free bet every-time they score in the competition.

But the French coach knows he has work to do on his defence after Friday's performance in which Arsenal were found wanting at two set pieces that resulted in Leicester goals.

"We were quite good last year on corners and with a bit of work we can get that out of our system", added Wenger, who has been given another two years in charge of Arsenal.

The publication says that the Gunners player does not see his future at the North London club, and wants to make a move away, with the La Liga as an ideal destination.
