The English Premier League got underway in fine style as Arsenal triumped 4-3 over Leicester courtesy of a dramatic late victor at the Emirates Stadium on Friday night.
Wenger further reiterated the point in his written press conference, describing Giroud's decision to remain with Arsenal as a "relief" and "one of the greatest days I've had in recent months". I've always liked Marko Arnautovic, he's given West Ham problems whenever he's played against them for Stoke and Javier Hernandez is an extremely exciting addition to the side.
"If you were a manager, you're on the bench when you're 3-2 down with 20 minutes to go, and you win 4-3, you're more happy than concerned", Wenger said.

"To come here and score three has to be pleasing in some respect, but it doesn't feel like it". While for Leicester, who got dethroned to finishing 12th last season, this season is about regaining that lost pride.
The household name also calls on the club's board to buy more players before the transfer window shuts.
The ruthless Jamie Vardy took advantage of Arsenal's shoddy defending twice - he stunned the Gunners with an emphatic kick in the first half and a delightful header in the second.
