Wenger reveals how he offered Giroud chance to quit Arsenal

Wenger reveals how he offered Giroud chance to quit Arsenal

I rate him as a player but we have similar types with [Alex] Iwobi and [Jack] Wilshere back.

Giroud came off the bench with Arsenal trailing 3-2 in Friday's Premier League curtain-raiser at the Emirates Stadium and after fellow substitute Aaron Ramsey equalised, he headed in an 85th-minute victor.

Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare was good on his word and started Riyad Mahrez, despite the fact the Algeria worldwide has asked to leave the club.

Eleven minutes into the second half Vardy restored Leicester City's lead.

Jamie Vardy was adjudged the Man of the Match in the game.

Aaron Ramsey came off the bench to level with eight minutes remaining before Giroud wrapped up the points.

Marc Albrighton served in a flawless ball from the left, curling a cross for Vardy, who capped the sequence against the run of play with his first goal of the season.

Following his new two-year contract the pressure had eased on Wenger over the summer after improved displays in April and May with a 3-4-3 system, an FA Cup victory to end last season and the signing of Alexandre Lacazette.




The guests needed only 10 minutes to regain their lead after the restart as Vardy headed in Riyad Mahrez's cross to score his side's third goal and complete his brace.

"We started very well but then we made two mistakes and they turned it around", said Cech.

"We know defensively we can do better but overall we produced a top-quality game".

Despite only starting 17 games last season in all competitions, Giroud still scored 16 times " including an eye-catching scorpion-style kick against Crystal Palace. Unfortunately they didn't go in but we can take a lot of positives, he added.

I just think he's got too much criticism and it's not his fault.

The Premier League debut of Lacazette should help offset Arsenal's loss of Alexis Sanchez, who will not face Leicester because of an abdominal strain.
