Wenger Wants Arsenal Star To Be Like Zlatan

Olivier Giroud scored late in the game as Arsenal rallied several times to beat Leicester City in the first game of the 2017-18 Premier League season.

'We wanted to do that today - unfortunately that didn't happen and it's something where we can look back and analyse the game and see where we went wrong and improve on the situation'.

The Gunners started quickly on home turf when new signing Alexandre Lacazette struck with just wo minutes on the clock, making no mistake with a headed effort. He doesn't want to leave, but at some stage I opened the door for him because I had many strikers.

Giroud was the match victor for Arsenal.

"Lacazette is simple. In every game he is stronger since he has joined us", Wenger said.

With the likes of Laurent Koscielny and Shkodran Mustafi still to come back, Wenger will no doubt be hoping his side will tighten up at the back as the season progresses, while the return of Alexis Sanchez (if he stays) will obviously strengthen the Gunners' attack.

Jamie struct again in the 56th minute to make 3-2 for The Foxes before Aaron Ramsey's 83rd and Giroud's 85th minutes goals prove decisive at the Emirates Stadium.

Vardy slid the visitors ahead from Marc Albrighton's cross, only for Danny Welbeck to stroke level on half-time.

"Scoring three goals away from home is a positive and we'll get back on the training field to make sure we sort the problems out". We had a lot of experienced defenders out injured for the game. But Leicester, which so astonishingly won the league in 2016, couldn't hold on for its first win at Arsenal since 1973.

After his late goal many Arsenal fans took to social media to react where they stated that Arsene Wenger should never sell the forward, while other supporters compared him to the likes of club legend Thierry Henry.

"You win 4-3, you're more happy than concerned, you know", he added.

But if Wenger plays two strikers then Giroud, with his physical presence, would be a really good complement to Lacazette, a lethal goalscorer that loves getting the ball inside the box.

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