The arrival of Alexandre Lacazette for a club record fee was supposed to spell the endgame in north London for a player who has divided opinion, but Wenger was pleased to imagine room for both - plus a handful more - in his attacking crew.
But Wenger revealed after the dramatic clash that Giroud "decided to stay" at the Emirates and he is "really loved" at the club.
But Wenger said there was now no chance of Giroud leaving before the transfer deadline closes later this month after the player had resolved to fight for his place in the first team at the Emirates Stadium.
"He's one of the bestmanagers in the world and it's motivating for me as a player that a manager like him can say that". "I want to make it clear that I am very happy with Chelsea, but we do not know about the future".
Michy Batshuayi scored just five league goals all season for Chelsea, but the 23-year-old made sure one of those was (sort of) the most important of the season, by scoring the title-winning goal against West Brom.
The France global joined Arsenal for a club-record £52million transfer from Lyon this summer, and has made an immediate impact by heading in an early goal against Leicester City.
The 36-year-old also praised City manager and compatriot Pep Guardiola, who won 21 trophies in seven years while in charge of Barcelona and Bayern Munich before arriving at Man City ahead of last season. "I just think we are not open - what I said to you many times - to any offers, anyway".
"Of course you can not afford to concede three goals at home".
"We had some avoidable goals which we conceded and overall we have to work on that", he said referring to poor marking in the by his team's defence. What the game was, though, is a reminder that beyond the incessant transfer rumours and long, moody shots of Arsene Wenger staring into nothingness awaits the adrenaline rush that only a good game of football can give.
