Leicester's Vardy blames 'lapses in concentration' for Arsenal defeat

But Arsenal fans took to Twitter to express their frustration toward Petr Cech, who's missed attempt to catch the ball led to Shinji Okazaki's equaliser.

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.

It took the arrival of Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud from the bench in the second half to turn it around against Leicester and give Arsenal only its second opening-day victory in eight seasons.

"Once again, we had to come back and the team showed it was very well prepared because it could cope with the unpleasant situation", said Cech. He's a fantastic player, but as well he has a big weight in this squad.

Giroud knew he would be relegated to a bench role following the signing of Alexandre Lacazette, but he made a decision to stay and fight for his spot, and Wenger had high praise for his countryman's commitment.

"So we conceded two goals from corner, we were quite good last season on corners".

"I feel as well that the goals we conceded, we can work together to get rid of that".

The future of Alexis Sanchez is unclear but Wenger has suggested he is prepared to keep the striker for a season and then let him leave on a free if he will not sign a £300,000-a-week contract.

Harry Maguire nodded Marc Albrighton's cross back into the path of Okazaki, who headed home for Leicester to level the scores before Vardy's goal.
