Jamie Vardy - who has now scored five goals against the Gunners in his last six appearances - grabbed his first of the night on the half-hour mark to give the Foxes the lead, but Arsenal equalised on the stroke of half-time through Danny Welbeck.

Against a plucky Leicester side at a packed and tense Emirates Stadium, Arsene Wenger's men scored twice in the last 10 minutes - first through substitute Aaron Ramsey before the much-maligned Giroud headed in the victor off Granit Xhaka's corner.

"Obviously I knew that I was going to have a chance so we tried to push", he said.

"Lacazette is simple. In every game he is stronger since he has joined us", Wenger said.

"You know, I must say I opened the door for him at some stage because I know that it's important for him to play".

"Well if you were a manager and you would be on the bench when you're 3-2 down with 20 minutes to go, and you win 4-3, you're more happy than concerned", he said.

"Going forward and character wise we have been great". They all deserve to play.

"We were quite good previous year on corners and overall I believe that with a bit of work we can get that out of the system". "He is a fantastic guy as well - committed, he loves the club".

Arsene Wenger opted to use a three-man defence but Arsenal were poor at the back, conceding three times.

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

Cech admitted it was a sloppy display from the Gunners' rearguard, but he took heart with the way they recovered to snatch the points. "He has a big weight in this squad and it was a relief for me that he chose to stay".

"Then we made mistakes and they punished us".

"Scoring three goals away from home is a positive and we'll get back on the training field to make sure we sort the problems out".
