Alexandre Lacazette scores just minutes into his Arsenal debut

Alexandre Lacazette scores just minutes into his Arsenal debut

It's fantastic. I must say I opened the door for him at some stage because I know that it's important for him to play, but I don't want him to go and in the end he made a decision to stay.

'At one stage I opened the door for him as I knew I had many strikers and in the end he made a decision to stay'.

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Wenger said: "We are open to an exceptional player". I rate him as a player but we have similar types with Alex Iwobi, Mesut Ozil and now Jack Wilshere back.

"Hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we have this season".

"I feel as well that the goals we conceded we can work to get rid of that because one was a corner, one was a ball we lost in the build-up and the third goal was on a corner again so we conceded two goals from corners".

Arsenal started the new Premier League season having won just one of their previous five opening matches - all of which were also home fixtures.

"The quality of the performances and the continuity of the end last season were really strong, we look to have desire to play, hunger to play together and win but we have to maintain that and go from game to game with the same hunger".

The Emirates Stadium exploded with joy, but they were sitting down, shaking their heads soon after as a quick corner caught Arsenal out and Shinji Okazaki, of all people, rose to head home the equaliser for the 2015-16 champions. There was a lifeline for Wenger before halftime when Welbeck met Sead Kolasinac's cross to tap in an equalizer.

Many observers may have thought Giroud's days at Arsenal were numbered following the arrival of fellow France striker Lacazette from Lyon for a club-record £46.5m fee.

New signings, Kelechi Iheanacho and Harry Maguire will be available to start for Shakespeare's side as they hope to prove just how valuable they are. "We've been courageous to the end and thank God we won the game" ollowed by Olivier Giroud, who headed in the winning goal in the 85th minute, raising the roof at the Emirates.

"Starting games is a different thing altogether, but he will score goals".

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