Giroud the hero as Arsenal escapes with win over Leicester

13 Août 2017

One player the Frenchman is backing to adapt to the Premier League quickly is Arsenal's other new summer signing, Sead Kolasinac.

The experienced Serb star was Manchester United's standout performer in a 2-1 loss to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the Champions League.

The electric start to the campaign, with a match on the Friday night opening the league programme for the first time, was the prologue for a fast match of punch and counter-punch.

"But I don't want him to go and in the end he made a decision to stay and it was one of the days of recent weeks for me because I know how important he is".

With less than a year remaining on Sanchez's current deal at the Emirates Stadium, the Chile global has been linked with a move away from the club and that he could even walk away for free at the end of the upcoming season.

ARSENAL manager Arsene Wenger said one of the "great days of recent weeks" was when striker Olivier Giroud passed up on the chance to leave the club.

Lacazette can integrate well into the game we want to play with his movement, combination, technical quality and efficiency, Wenger told Sky Sports.

"It was very clear by showing what he did past year was not enough for him", he said.

Equities fall on rising tension between US & North Korea
SIMMERING TENSIONS: North Korea revealed on Thursday a detailed plan to launch a salvo of ballistic missiles toward the U.S. The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 143.08 points, or 0.94 percent, at 15,074.25.

However, Arsenal's fans' joy was short-lived.

The plan for Leicester this season is to finish in the top ten and maybe go on a run in the FA Cup or League Cup. "West Ham can win at Manchester United, but I'd be happy if they came home with a point".

Regardless of the club, something the reporter makes pretty clear, the player was asked if he'd like to work under the Portuguese manager again: "Being honest, no doubts about it". However, just to remind you we have 33 players and they are all good players.

Shakespeare was true to his word and started Riyad Mahrez despite the Algeria worldwide asking to leave the King Power Stadium.

The Chilean striker is strongly linked with the exit door at present, having allowed his contract to enter its final 12 months, and has so far failed to agree terms on a new one.

The Serie A side have now said they will not increase their offer and Shakespeare is happy to have Mahrez in the team.

"Personally, I think he is a hugely talented player, he's on the way up and he will continue to move up because the potential is there", he said. "Riyad has been very focused".
