Against a plucky Leicester side at a packed and tense Emirates Stadium, Arsene Wenger's men scored twice in the last 10 minutes - first through substitute Aaron Ramsey before the much-maligned Giroud headed in the victor off Granit Xhaka's corner.

Arsenal fell behind twice against a tenacious Leicester City before winning 4-3, thanks to a late goal by Olivier Giroud in the opening match of the 2017-2018 English Premier League (EPL) football season here.

The lead was short lived as Shinji Okazaki restored parity via his head only minutes later and Jamie Vardy slid in to score just before the half-hour mark.

The France worldwide came off the bench to head home in the 85th minute as the Gunners started their season with a thrilling 4-3 win.

"I'm happy we handled it well in the end", said Cech, who joined the Gunners from Chelsea in 2015.

"He is really loved here, we love him and, in the end, he chose to stay".

'I'm very pleased for the team tonight, hopefully we're going to carry on'.

Orrin Hatch, a Republican from Utah, furiously condemned the President, saying: "We should call evil by its name". Jeff Flake of Arizona called out "white supremacy" in condemning bigotry; and Republican Sen.

Praising Giroud's response after being left out of the starting line-up, Wenger added: "I love the man and the player".

"We went for a win and we deservedly earned it".

"You come away from home, score three goals and are almost there and then concede two.bitterly disappointed", he said.

"I feel as well that the goals we conceded, we can work together to get rid of that because one was a ball we lost in the build-up and we conceded two goals on corners". You can not keep the strikers happy when they don't play. I then wanted Wilfred and Daniel Amartey to get up close to their midfield players and for Iheanacho to have the space in the last ten minutes to get on the back of Granit Xhaka.

Vardy had better luck soon after, though, this time climbing highest to pick out the far corner of the net with his head from a corner to double his personal tally for the night.

Now with a freaky back four of (from right to left) Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Monreal, Kolasinac and Hector Bellerin, Arsenal pushed for an equaliser, and on 83 minutes it came.
