Olivier Giroud says courageous Arsenal never gave up against Leicester City

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed that Alexis Sanchez will be sidelined for two weeks

Arsenal began the Premier League campaign on a high, after defeating Leicester City 4-3 in a seven-goal thriller at the Emirates Stadium.

Record signing Alexander Lacazette opened his account within two minutes of the kick-off, but the home side's lead was nearly immediately rubbed out as Shinji Okazaki equalised minutes later before Jamie Vardy put the visitors in front after half an hour.

But Arsene Wenger's double change turned the game, FA Cup final hero Ramsey drilling in an 83rd-minute equaliser and Giroud notching the victor two minutes later with a header that hit the bar and bounced over the line.

"Insecurity goes quickly through a team and we had many experienced defenders out tonight - Koscielny, Mustafi, Mertesacker".

Wenger, who has plenty of attacking options in his squad, added: "It's a long time since we had so much quality".

It's only the second time in eight seasons that Arsene Wenger's side have secured three points in their opening fixture.

USA dares China, takes naval warships to Chinese waters without permission
USA officials say the military will continue to sail, fly and operate wherever permitted by global law. China has ignored and dismissed the ruling as a sham.

While the challenge of scoring in Ligue 1 may vary from finding the net in the Premier League, Wenger wants Lacazette to use Zlatan Ibrahimovic as his yardstick.

Arsenal have made a "huge breakthrough" in contract negotiations with playmaker Mesut Ozil, according to a recent report.

Within three minutes Leicester were level.

Petr Cech was largely at fault, coming off his line but getting nowhere near Marc Albrighton's deep cross as Foxes debutant Harry Maguire headed back across goal for Okazaki to nod in.

"Obviously I knew that I was going to have a chance so we tried to push".

"The goals we conceded, we can work to get rid of that".

Mariota returns; Jets top Titans 7-3 in preseason opener
Hackenberg completed 18 of 25 passes for 127 yards in the 7-3 win over the Tennessee Titans , his only turnover a botched snap. Bryce Petty got mop-up duty, playing one series in the third quarter and the entire fourth.

Albrighton crossed for Jamie Vardy to put Leicester ahead after Xhaka had gifted the ball straight to him.

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.

But Arsenal's defence, with essentially two full-backs playing in their back three, were soon caught out having been given a warning when want-away Leicester winger Riyad Mahrez volleyed wide.

Carragher said: "Unfortunately, we're talking about referees again".

"But we're not going to be too downhearted".
