Match highlights of Arsenal 4-3 Leicester

Olivier Giroud came off the bench to head home a late winner for Arsenal in a topsy-turvy Premier League opener against Leicester.

The Gunners had won just one of their last seven opening-day fixtures and looked destined to start another campaign slowly as the 2015/16 champions took the lead twice only to lose 4-3 at the Emirates Stadium.

The night started perfectly for Arsenal as new signing Alexandre Lacazette marked his league debut with a goal after just 94 seconds, only for Shinji Okazaki to cancel it out three minutes later with a header past Petr Cech.

Jamie Vardy then capitalised on some suspect Arsenal defending to twice put the Foxes ahead, either side of Danny Welbeck’s equaliser late in the first half, before Arsene Wenger sent on the cavalry to help secure the victory.

Substitute Aaron Ramsey rifled home to level before Giroud – introduced alongside the Wales international – headed in an 85th-minute winner to settle a breathless encounter in Arsenal’s favour.
