Their joy was short-lived however, as Shinji Okazaki headed Leicester level only three minutes later.

Flying wing-back Sead Kolasinac and Welbeck saw another couple of chances come and go as the Gunners pressed for a second, but it was Leicester who found the game's next goal against the run of play 29 minutes in.

Arsenal fell behind twice against a tenacious Leicester City before winning 4-3, thanks to a late goal by Olivier Giroud in the opening match of the 2017-2018 English Premier League (EPL) football season here.

To cap off a busy first half of the season, Welbeck tied things up after 45 minutes, scoring from close range.

Arsenal who started without their usual centre back pair of Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertasacker went into the lead after just 94 seconds through new signing Alexandre Lacazzette.

Two minutes later, the comeback was complete, with super-sub Giroud sending the home fans wild via magnificent header from a Xhaka corner, despite being held by Wes Morgan.

Instead, Wenger avoided a third consecutive season-opening loss at the start of his new two-year contract.

"I must tell you I opened the door for him at some stage (to leave) because it's important for him to play. I know how important he is not only as a player but also in the group".

"It is a relief and I believe as well a reminder to the players that they have hurdles on the way and that we can get round it, like tonight so that is quite positive".

Many observers may have thought Giroud's days at Arsenal were numbered following the arrival of fellow France striker Lacazette from Lyon for a club-record £46.5m fee. Giroud is in his prime, at the top of his game.

"It is fantastic", Wenger replied when asked about Giroud's willingness to fight for his place. "He did very well on the left when we moved him".

"I love the man and the player", said Wenger.

"I think we have all seen the amusing business of the transfer window and we never know what is round the corner".

"I'm happy the goals we conceded we can work on together".
