'Never sell him' - Arsenal fans react to display of substitute against Leicester

12 August, 2017, 20:10 | Author: Joan Malone

Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud came off the bench snatch victory from the jaws of defeat for Arsenal, who opened the 2017-2018 Premier League season with a topsy-turvy 4-3 thriller against Leicester City.

A predictable Arsenal implosion followed, with Shinji Okazaki and Jamie Vardy putting Leicester in front.

But the home side's pressure in the final half hour turned the game back their way and Ramsey equalised with a shot from close range with seven minutes remaining.

The striker, who the Gunners signed from Lyon for an initial fee of €53 million in the summer, finished clinically to put the hosts ahead after two minutes, expertly heading home Mohamed Elneny's cross.

"I don't know whether it was a lack of concentration or just a lack of game management in the last ten minutes, but you then concede again from a set play in terms of being overpowered".

"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".

"Not only as a player, he is a fantastic player, b ut as well in the group - he has a big weight in the squad and it was a relief for me that he chose to stay". It was a relief for me he chose to stay.

"There were hard moments when we were down and we managed to get out of that and it's great to see".

"I feel as well that the goals we conceded, we can work together to get rid of that because one was a ball we lost in the build-up and we conceded two goals on corners". Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare on Vardy: "We're encouraging him to play to his strengths, getting in behind, being a nuisance to the defenders, but also to get in that box and score goals". We encourage our midfield players to play balls in behind.
