Arsenal Player Ratings: Ozil goes missing, but Kolasinac shines against Leicester

"I don't know whether it was a lack of concentration or just a lack of game management in the last ten minutes, but you then concede again from a set play in terms of being overpowered".

Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Friday night's match-winner Olivier Giroud has chose to stay at Arsenal next season, ending interest from Everton, West Ham United and Marseille. "He's fantastic", the manager added.

Ronald Koeman's Everton have been most heavily mentioned in connection with the £25m-rated 30-year-old, with the likes of West Ham United, Marseille and Lyon also credited with an interest. "He doesn't want to leave and I'm happy he wants to stay". But I don't want him to go and in the end he chose to stay. I know how important he is not only as a player but also in the group he has a big weight. "He has a big weight in this squad and it was a relief for me that he made a decision to stay". "If you look at that from a neutral point, for a first game it was a top quality game". The combination of brute strength and balance to hold his position while he was being pulled plus the technique to steer in a thumping header was the kind of action not many of his Arsenal team-mates are capable of.

Ever since France striker Alexandre Lacazette joined in July for a club-record 60 million euros ($68 million), the future of compatriot Giroud has been in doubt. The defense will need to become firmer if far sterner opponents than Leicester are to be beaten.

But in July's investigative piece, DeRogatis presented even more troubling information regarding the R&B singer's alleged "cult". Kelly's behavior behind closed doors, but an investigation into the R&B star is not now in progress, officials said Friday.

The Frenchman came off the bench for the Gunners to head home in the 85th minute, turning a 3-2 deficit into a 4-3 lead in the closing stages.

As Arsenal fans went berserk, Lacazette's celebration was fitting as he simply stood in place with his arms outstretch and a beaming smile while his teammates mobbed him just left of the penalty spot.

"If you look at the third goal, I'm a bit disappointed with the handball leading up to it but that aside, once you get the corner, you have to defend it better".
