Arsene Wenger would respond by sending on by sending on Olivier Giroud and Aaron Ramsey, and that proved to be an inspired decision.

Asked if Giroud could still leave before the transfer window closes on August 31 until January, Wenger replied: "No".

'We have not made a bid for him but personally I like the player, ' the Gunners manager said of the 2015/16 PFA Player of the Year.

But Wenger revealed after the dramatic clash that Giroud "decided to stay" at the Emirates and he is "really loved" at the club.

Two goals in the first 10 minutes and two in the last 10 - if that doesn't rekindle the excitement of Premier League football, not much can.

"It's a long time since I spoke to him". Overall I must say we kept going and the spirit of the team was absolutely outstanding and overall you could say as well we were punished on every single mistake tonight by a Leicester team who was very efficient going forward.

With less than a year remaining on Sanchez's current deal at the Emirates Stadium, the Chile worldwide has been linked with a move away from the club and that he could even walk away for free at the end of the upcoming season. I don't know whether it was a lack of concentration or game management.

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

England striker Vardy put the visitors 2-1 ahead just before the half hour, darting into the box to rifle another fine Albrighton cross past Cech after the winger had pounced on a poor square ball from Arsenal midfielder Mezut Ozil. Leicester re-took the lead on 58 minutes, with Vardy heading home Riyad Mahrez's corner.

While Lacazette netted the opener after two minutes against Leicester on Friday, a collapse left Arsenal trailing with seven minutes remaining.

Giroud outmuscled Harry Maguire to meet Granit Xhaka's corner with a strong header that hit the bar and bounced behind the line before Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel could club it away.

"Now I'm ready to go back to this league and show everyone that I'm back". He is adapting to the way we want to play.

Regardless of the club, something the reporter makes pretty clear, the player was asked if he'd like to work under the Portuguese manager again: "Being honest, no doubts about it".
