Arsenal warned over risk of keeping Sanchez until the end of his contract

Shinji Okazaki had equalised on five minutes following Alexandre Lacazette's second-minute opener, and Arsenal fans were not pleased with Petr Cech's involvement in the build-up to the equaliser.

He then scored again in the 56th minute to restore a 3-2 lead for the Foxes.

Desperate times call for desperate measures and Arsene Wenger made very attacking changes, bringing on Olivier Giroud and Aaron Ramsey for Rob Holding and Elneny respectively.

Speaking to Sky Sports after Friday's game, Wenger said: "He doesn't want to leave, and I'm happy that he wants to stay". It's fantastic Giroud wants to stay - he chose to stay. I know how important he is not only as a player - he's a fantastic player - but also in the group he has a big weight.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists match-winner Olivier Giroud will stay at the club this season. "If you look at that from a neutral point, for a first game it was a top-quality game".

"With the first corner, we were late".

Wenger has said Giroud will not be leaving the club during the transfer window despite apparent interest from Everton and Marseille.

Bet 365 are giving odds of 8/15 for Arsenal to see past Leicester.

In July 2016, The Hague's Permanent Court of Arbitration ruled that China has no rights for territorial claims in the region. China's Global Times newspaper labelled Australia, Japan and the United States "a little bit bad" after their statement .

Okazaki, who headed home by the far post from a short corner, was pleased he scored on opening night but was not about to get carried away.

"This has happened to us the last three seasons here".

The 67-year-old manager praised his side's spirit after their comeback win and admits that there is work to be done in defence after letting Leicester score from two set-pieces.

Things went from bad to worse when Jamie Vardy put Leicester a goal to the good against the run of play.

"I'm always looking for the positives, we came to the Emirates and the players executed the game plan".

The overall experience pleased the forward, who admitted that he is still getting used to a new style of game at the Emirates Stadium. They all deserve to play at that level'.

"There were hard moments when we were down and we managed to get out of that and it's great to see".
