Arsenal 4-3 Leicester: Giroud the Hero as Gunners Pull Off Incredible Win

Late goals from Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud earned Arsenal a comeback 4-3 win over Leicester City in a thrilling 2017/18 Premier League season opener.

The scoring started inside two minutes when Alexandre Lacazette found the net with a header on his PL debut.

But Shinji Okazaki nodded in from close-range three minutes later before Jamie Vardy converted a superb Marc Albrighton cross to put the Foxes 2-1 up.

Danny Welbeck scored in first-half stoppage-time before Vardy restored Leicester’s advantage with a header from Riyad Mahrez’s corner on 56 minutes.

But Ramsey struck from a Granit Xhaka cross on 83 minutes and Giroud’s header went in off the crossbar from another Xhaka delivery two minutes later to settle a gripping contest.
