Danny Welbeck pleased with Arsenal spirit in win over Leicester

Danny Welbeck pleased with Arsenal spirit in win over Leicester

Arsenal and Leicester City served up a wild curtain-raiser for the 2017-18 Premier League season, with the Gunners taking the opener 4-3 at home.

"I love the man and the player because he's a fantastic guy. committed (and) he loves the club", Wenger said.

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.

Nevertheless, it was Arsenal who emerged victorious, as two goals in the final 10 minutes from substitutes Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud sealed a dramatic victory for the Gunners.

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.

Leicester showed plenty of endeavour as they came close to causing an upset in the Premier League's first fixture.

Alexandre Lacazette's 2nd minute curtain raiser was short lived as Shinji Okazaki equalized for Leicester two three minutes later.

"It's impossible to keep them happy when strikers don't play". I know how important he is not only as a player but also in the group he has a big weight. "I opened the door for him, because I knew we had many strikers, but he's really loved here and he made a decision to stay".

Arsenal shipped three goals but were without arguably three of their first-choice defenders as Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny and Shkodran Mustafi all sat out due to a combination of fitness and suspension. "He did very well on the left when we moved him".

"The first goal was from a short corner and we were not focused enough".

Asked about Arsenal's title chances, Wenger said: "There are six or seven teams who can win the league".

"Top quality game and you want PL to be best in the world and you have to produce games like that", Wenger told reporters.
