Olivier Giroud scored his 99th goal for Arsenal to rescue three points on the opening day of the new Premier League season. Cech was unconvincing for Leicester's 2nd goal after he hesitated to come out to meet Marc Albrighton's cross, which Vardy converted to make it 1-2. But I don't want him to go and in the end he chose to stay.
Intriguingly, it is a former Arsenal forward with whom Lacazette now shares his record. Giroud had been linked with moves to Marseille, West Ham and Everton over the summer and speculation intensified when striker Alexandre Lacazette arrived at the Emirates with a £52 million price tag, the sort of money which demands game time.
After crowning a good pre-season with a win over London rival Chelsea in last week's Community Shield, the Gunners should have been confident going into Friday's contest at the Emirates, reports Efe.
Although Danny Welbeck leveled on the stroke of halftime, Vardy restored Leicester's lead after the break.
Giroud told Sky Sports after the game that he and his teammates never doubted they could come back.
"So we conceded two goals from corner, we were quite good last season on corners".
"I feel as well that the goals we conceded, we can work together to get rid of that because one was a ball we lost in the build-up and we conceded two goals on corners".
It was a game that Arsenal ought to have won, having dominated proceedings all through the 90 minutes and the added time.
"I felt that to lose tonight would have been awful for us because we had such good preparation and to sit there in the morning and think we had lost at home would have been bad", he said.
I'm not saying he should be Arsenal's number one striker; that wouldn't be enough if Arsenal were trying to win a Premier League or Champions League which a club of this size should be.
