Wenger 'relieved' Giroud has chose to stay

Thai-owned Leicester let a chance for victory slip away as Arsenal came from behind to win 4-3 in a thrilling English Premier League season opener on Friday night.

Against a plucky Leicester side at a packed and tense Emirates Stadium, Arsene Wenger's men scored twice in the last 10 minutes - first through substitute Aaron Ramsey before the much-maligned Giroud headed in the victor off Granit Xhaka's corner.

Giroud's compatriot Alexandre Lacazette marked his league debut with a goal in just 94 seconds, only for Shinji Okazaki to level for the Foxes less than three minutes later.

Arsène Wenger praises match-winner Olivier Giroud for staying at Arsenal
A feast of goals opened the Premier League season when Arsenal twice came from behind to beat Leicester City 4-3. Wenger, who has plenty of attacking options in his squad, added: "It's a long time since we had so much quality".

Following Danny Welbeck's leveller in first-half stoppage time, another corner yielded Leicester's third goal as Riyad Mahrez's cross was headed home by Vardy.

Arsène Wenger expressed his relief that Olivier Giroud, widely considered this summer to be either on the move or a player destined to be not much more than a supersub, remains very much at the heart of life at Arsenal.

The 30-year-old has been linked with West Ham, Everton and Marseille since the arrival of club-record signing Lacazette.

He then reassures Mr Calvo, who he describes as a "hell of a guy", telling him the United States military is "rock solid". Trump's contentious calls with leaders of Australia and Mexico in the early days of his administration.

"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". It was a relief for me he made a decision to stay.

"I'm happy the goals we conceded we can work on together".

"I'm always looking for the positives, we came to the Emirates and the players executed the game plan".

Political tensions continue to weigh on stocks
While gold, a safe-haven favorite, pared some gains, it was last up 1.2 percent, at around its highest since mid-June. The market indexes wavered between small gains and losses for much of the morning, then veered lower by afternoon.

The 2016 PFA Player of the Season had always been linked with a move to the Gunners and looks set to leave the Foxes this term, however it seems that Arsene Wenger is not keen. We encourage our midfield players to play balls in behind.
