Arsenal defender admits pace of Premier League surprised him

Arsenal defender admits pace of Premier League surprised him

That lead lasted only three minutes, however, with Shinji Okazaki heading Leicester back on level terms off poor Arsenal defending.

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. Both teams played fantastic and poorly throughout the 90 minutes, but Arsenal found just a bit more late, and an Olivier Giroud goal gave the Gunners all 3 points.

"I opened the door for him [Giroud] at some stage as I had many strikers and it's important for him to play but I don't want him to go", said Wenger. At one stage I opened the door for him to go as I knew I had many strikers, and in the end he chose to stay.

Substitute Ramsey smashed in an angled drive - from a corner which was won after Mesut Ozil handled in the build-up - before Giroud showed athleticism and strength to meet Granit Xhaka's corner.

American Tourist In Germany Does Nazi Salute, Gets Beaten Up
That's this weekend's object lesson from Germany, a nation that knows a thing or two about Nazis. "Don't do it anywhere in fact". It's the second time this month that tourists have gotten themselves into legal trouble for giving the Nazi salute.

"If you look across the world of football this is a plum position, people want to be manager of Arsenal".

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

Rumours persist that Sanchez will leave before the window closes, with Wenger suggesting he will also miss the trip to Stoke next weekend.

"This has happened to us the last three seasons here".

Tottenham close in on £35 million move for Davinson Sanchez
Tottenham are reportedly preparing an offer of £28m to test Ajax's resolve over their star defender Davinson Sanchez . The fact that he is only 21, can mean that he will be a long-term member of the Spurs.

In a separate pitch-side interview he added: "I love Giroud the player".

Harry Maguire nodded Marc Albrighton's cross back into the path of Okazaki, who headed home for Leicester to level the scores before Vardy's goal.

Leicester moved in front through Jamie Vardy just before the half-hour, but the Gunners made it 2-2 going into the break with Danny Welbeck opening his season account in injury time. "They had chances and then we had to chase". I got back late, I should have handled this better.

"We encourage our midfield players to play balls in behind. We were quite good a year ago on corners and overall I believe that with a bit of work we can get that out of the system".
