Olivier Giroud’s late header saw Arsenal to a stunning 4-3 win over Leicester City on Friday, as the Premier League returned with gusto at the Emirates Stadium.
A frantic opening five minutes set the tone for a sensational match, as Alexandre Lacazette’s debut goal for the Gunners was cancelled out by Shinji Okazaki. Jamie Vardy’s 29th-minute strike put the Foxes ahead, before Danny Welbeck levelled again in first-half stoppage time.
Leicester came again after the break, with Vardy heading home a Riyad Mahrez corner to put the visitors ahead for a second time after 56 minutes.
It looked to be enough for the Foxes for long spells, but two substitutes hauled the Gunners back from the brink. First Aaron Ramsey smashed home an equaliser in the 83rd minute, before Giroud powered a header into the top corner a couple of minutes later to complete an incredible fightback.
