Although Danny Welbeck leveled on the stroke of halftime, Vardy restored Leicester's lead after the break.

Olivier Giroud headed home the late victor on Friday.

"Previously in the Premier League we've not got off to the best of starts, so it meant a lot for us to get a good start and get three points today. We've been courageous to the end and thank God we won the game". "I know how important he is not only as a player but also in the group".

"Giroud? He's fantastic", Wenger said of the France worldwide, who usually started on the bench last season and had been linked with a move away from The Emirates.

"When you are a football manager and you're 3-2 down with 20 minutes left, you're happy however you win", he said.

"Character wise, we have been great tonight".

However, it was Giroud who once again saved the day for Arsenal, showing himself to be the ideal super-sub after excelling in that role for Wenger's side last season.

But the thing with Chelsea is that they play to the system, are well drilled and the new signings will fit into that system which has shown works so well over the past 12-months. "We had some avoidable goals which we conceded and overall we have to work on that". They all deserve to play. "He is a fantastic guy as well - committed, he loves the club".

After his late goal many Arsenal fans took to social media to react where they stated that Arsene Wenger should never sell the forward, while other supporters compared him to the likes of club legend Thierry Henry.

Then I think most of teams just want to stay in the Premier League, but the bottom three I am going for Huddersfield, Brighton and Burnley as the three to go down - I think there will be so many teams battling. We love him and in the end he made a decision to stay.

"We wanted to do that today - unfortunately that didn't happen and it's something where we can look back and analyse the game and see where we went wrong and improve on the situation".
