Match-winner Giroud can still do a job for Arsenal, says Wenger

  • Top 25 Manchester City players of the Premier League era - #22

The main time ended with the score 2: 2. He then scored again in the 56th minute to restore a 3-2 lead for the Foxes. First came in Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud in the 67th minute.

The Daily Record is claiming that the Portuguese coach wants to bring in a new full-back in that position who would be capable of challenging Manchester United's current players for a spot in the starting line-up. Even without him, however, Theo Walcott, Alex Iwobi and Danny Welbeck are desperate to compete with he French forwards. But Leicester, which so astonishingly won the league in 2016, couldn't hold on for its first win at Arsenal since 1973.

Lacazette almost had his second of the night just minutes later, but Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel turned the shot aside, but Giroud beat the Dane with an exquisite header on the ensuing corner to give Arsenal the 4-3 victory. But he insists, despite that, the title is a more realistic target.

"I have plenty of uncertainties about the players who didn't play against Chelsea", he said.

Tottenham's Harry Kane finished last season with eight goals in his last three games as he surged past Lukaku to win his second successive Golden Boot.

"Hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we spent this season", Guardiola said Friday on the eve of his side's opening game of the new Premier League season at promoted Brighton and Hove Albion.

Albrighton crossed for Jamie Vardy to put Leicester ahead after Xhaka had gifted the ball straight to him. It's disappointing with the corner as we should have been organised.

"We always had more goals from wingers, midfielders getting 10 goals, central defenders getting five goals and last season that didn't happen much".

"Our character is the best ingredient in our game tonight. We managed to assimilate very well what he asked us in the training sessions and things worked out".

"Of course now the full-backs are younger, they have energy in their legs and we are going to use them". It's impossible (to keep all strikers happy).

"I will do my best like I did last season".

"And you could see that this team has quality and is used to playing together, but [we had] 70 per cent possession with 27 shots on goal".

"We were punished on every single mistake by a Leicester team that was very efficient going forward".
