Arsenal score two late goals for comeback win vs. Leicester City

Arsenal score two late goals for comeback win vs. Leicester City

Giroud got the victor with an 85th-minute header, and he said afterward that Arsenal never doubted they could come back.

Vardy bagged his brace when he capitalised on another piece of poor defending from the home side to fire Leicester into the lead in the 56th minute to make the scores 3-2.

Speaking to Sky Sports after Friday's game, Wenger said: "He doesn't want to leave, and I'm happy that he wants to stay". "In the end he made a decision to stay and it was one of the great days of the recent weeks for me".

'A player I am a big fan of, ' is how Jamie Carragher described Olivier Giroud on Friday night.

The Arsenal netminder was caught in no man's land for Leicester's opener as Okazaki sent a looping header into the net.

Worryingly for Arsenal, Arsene Wenger has sold Wojciech Szczesny and loaned out Emi Martinez, meaning that David Ospina, who is rumoured to want a move away from the club this summer, is Cech's only competition.

"We saw it though for 83 minutes", Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare said, "and to concede two late set-plays in the manner we did is obviously hard to take".

Despite pressure on him at the end of last season, Arsene Wenger signed a new two-year contract and signs like this could be seen in the crowd as the match began.

Everton have been tipped to move for him as a potential replacement for Romelu Lukaku, who joined Manchester United last month.

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.

"We went for a win and we deservedly earned it".

The first touch from the 60 million euro (US$71 million) signing was at kick-off. "They had chances and then we had to chase".

The Germany global appeared to handle the ball during the build to Aaron Ramsey's late equaliser.

With what will surely be the first of many Lacazette has already got his first Arsenal goal in his first Premier League outing, joining Freddie Ljungberg, Emmanuel Adebayor, Samir Nasri and Thomas Vermaelen in doing so in the Wenger era.

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