The Gunners got off to the ideal start, with record-signing Alexandre Lacazette scoring after just 94 seconds, via his his first-ever shot in the Premier League.

It was an incredible escape act from Arsenal, but Giroud claimed his team, who dominated possession and peppered the Leicester goal, never doubted they would hit back.

Alexis Sanchez will miss Arsenal's opening two Premier League games through an abdominal injury as manager Arsene Wenger refused to reveal if the club had received any bids for the forward.

"I opened the door for him at some stage as it's important for him to play but I don't want him to go", Wenger said at the post-match news conference.

On the competitiveness of the League season which has just begun, Wenger added, "I don't know how good everyone will be".

Wenger wouldn't say if any bids had come in for Sanchez.

"Overall we showed great character in the first game of the season - we played a classic". While in other hand, the Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey and Per Mertesacker are there as fit and expected in the official lineups but still it is doubtful of their presence. "There were hard moments when we were down and we managed to get out of that and it's great to see".

Giroud then sent the previously despondent Arsenal fans wild when he headed the victor from a corner, Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel only managing to turn the ball onto the underside of the bar before it bounced over the line.

The Frenchman grabbed a hat trick on the opening day of last season while he was still at Lyon and his opening day record far eclipses his current Arsenal teammates'. "We were quite good past year on corners and overall I believe that with a bit of work we can get that out of the system".

Life as an Arsenal fan summed up in four minutes. The former Lyon man will have huge pressure on him to perform in front of the Arsenal faithful in his first official game with the club. "We have top quality".

"I'm convinced in 10 or 15 years it will not necessarily be a football specialist who is a manager of a club".

And on this showing you had to think they have a better chance than Wenger and his team. "We kept the faith and kept believing in our game to push hard". This game will have more of a competitive edge than the usual curtain raiser, but we can expect Arsene Wenger's side to be up for it.

"I prefer to be on the pitch", the 30-year-old Giroud said, "but as much as I can I try to help the team reach its target".
