For example Ramsey, Ozil, Mertesacker... and of course Koscielny is suspended.

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.

Arsenal had seen nearly 75% of the ball in the first 20 minutes and Welbeck had Arsenal's best chance since Lacazette's opener.

Alexandre Lacazette got his and Arsenal's season off to the ideal start with a debut goal in the first two minutes.

"There were some unsavoury scenes going on at Arsenal; in-fighting and stuff like that, but I think with the majority of the fan base are resigned".

Arsenal had been quiet since Vardy's goal but they were to go in at the break on level terms after a frenetic first half.

The north Londoners got themselves in a hole last night again against the Foxes, conceding a trio of goals - two from ace hitman Jamie Vardy - in the first 56 minutes.


Shinji Okazaki cancelled out Lacazette's opener with a close-range header after Maguire had been left unmarked to nod Marc Albrighton's deep cross back across goal.

The Gunners were a goal up inside two minutes as Alexandre Lacazette scored on debut with only his second touch of the game - heading in Mohamed Elneny's cross.

"The Premier League is the most competitive league in the world and Arsenal are one of the best clubs in it, year after year they've shown their consistency", he said.

Olivier Giroud found the victor for Arsenal late on.

Giroud told Sky Sports after the game that he and his teammates never doubted they could come back.

Five minutes added time can Arsenal hold on or Leicester will get a share of the spoils at the Emirates?? "He is on the way up and he will continue to move up because that potential is there", Wenger said. "Yes, but we scored four goals as well and the game was of quality". Wenger reiterated that "we are still open" to more signings, but that the immediate priority is to trim his 33-man first-team squad before the transfer deadline.
