Giroud header seals Arsenal win in season-opening thriller

Giroud header seals Arsenal win in season-opening thriller”

But after Chelsea skipper Gary Cahill was sent off in the 14th minute Burnley took a 3-0 lead into the break, and while they had to hang on to secure a 3-2 win, in the end a team that had managed just one away win all last season triumphed against a club with vastly superior resources.

Substitute Aaron Ramsey rifled home to level before Giroud - introduced alongside the Wales worldwide - headed in an 85th-minute victor to settle a breathless encounter in Arsenal's favour.

Olivier Giroud was delighted to prove Arsenal's matchwinner in their opening night thriller against Leicester City.

The Gunners were out fired by every one of the four clubs who completed above them in the table, leaving Wenger prepared to use up every last cent to guarantee his side are less dependent on Alexis.If he does, Arsenal are probably going to have a decent one moreover.

"This has happened to us the last three seasons here", he told Sky Sports.

"We had quite a few chances. (We had) 70 percent possession, 27 shots on goal, Leicester had three shots on target and scored three so that shows you how efficient they are".

"I feel that the goals we conceded, we can work to get rid of that", he said.

"I'm disappointed with the handball in the build-up, but once the corner's given you have to defend it better", he said. Because I know how important he is, not only as a player - he is a fantastic player - but as well in the group.

Shakespeare praised Vardy, as well Harry Maguire after the close-season recruit from Hull City turned in an all-action debut from centre-back. All our players got a decent number of minutes of good competition, so overall the preparation of the squad looks good.

"Jamie Vardy is back to his old self. We have the firm intention not to sell him".

A player moaning about his 65,000 pounds a week salary; another handing in a transfer request 24 hours before the first game and suspicious injuries to players known to want to leave for bigger money elsewhere.
