Arsenal score two late goals for comeback win vs. Leicester City

How to Watch Arsenal vs. Leicester City Live Stream TV channel

Substitute Olivier Giroud scored a late victor as Arsenal staged a dramatic fightback to kick off the new Premier League season with a pulsating 4-3 victory against Leicester City on Friday night.

Two minutes later, the comeback was complete, with super-sub Giroud sending the home fans wild via magnificent header from a Xhaka corner, despite being held by Wes Morgan.

Despite a Danny Wellbeck leveller on the stroke of halftime, the Emirates Stadium crowd was growing increasingly anxious and, when Vardy scored his second with 40 minutes to play, they must have feared the worst.

Arsene Wenger is relieved Olivier Giroud opted to stay at Arsenal this summer after the striker scored the victor in Friday's Premier League opener against Leicester.

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

Arsenal's new signing Frenchman Alexandre Lacazette took 94 seconds to make his mark with a header from Mohamed Elneny's curling cross to equal the record for the fastest opening goal in a Premier League season.

"I opened the door for him at some stage as it's important for him to play but I don't want him to go", Wenger said at the post-match news conference.

Asked if Giroud could still leave before the transfer window closes on August 31 until January, Wenger replied: "No. We love him and in the end he chose to stay".

"He doesn't want to leave and I'm happy he wants to stay".

"Going forward and character wise we have been great", said a relieved Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who will be seeking a first league title since 2004 after being handed another two years in charge.

"With the first corner, we were late".

"I think we have all seen the amusing business of the transfer window and we never know what is round the corner".
