Jamie Carragher Explains Why He's A Big Fan Of Olivier Giroud

Alexis Sanchez Arsene Wenger

However, the France global came off the bench with a quarter of the game left to play to head home the Gunners' 85th-minute victor. Arsene Wenger's men, though, would have the last laugh as Aaron Ramsey leveled seven minutes to time before substitute Olivier Giroud won it in the 85th.

He doesn't want to leave and I'm happy he wants to stay. I opened the door for him because I know I had many strikers. He's a fantastic player, but as well he has a big weight in this squad.

'He is loved here and we are very happy he made a decision to stay'.

The last player to score a goal faster on their Premier League debut was Thievy Bifouma, who came on for his Premier League debut for West Brom at half-time and scored after just 36 seconds in a 3-1 defeat at Crystal Palace in February 2014.

'I was disappointed with the handball leading up to the equaliser but once you get a corner you have to defend it better, ' said the Foxes boss.

'Even when I played Giroud through the middle and him on the left he did very well. He adapts slowly to the way we want to play.

"However, just to remind you we have 33 players and they are all good players". Both Lacazette and Giroud need strong seasons to make sure they are in the French party travelling to the World Cup in Russian Federation next summer.

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.

He gives you that aerial ability going forward as we saw with that winning goal.

"We had some avoidable goals which we conceded and overall we have to work on that", he said referring to poor marking in the by his team's defence.

"I think we have all seen the amusing business of the transfer window and we never know what is round the corner".

"After that, we get the efficiency".

Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare was good on his word and started Riyad Mahrez, despite the fact the Algeria worldwide has asked to leave the club. Neither side made changes entering the second half.

"But you could say that Ibrahimovic transferred an identical amount of goals from France to England".
