​Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has praised record signing Alexandre Lacazette who opened his Gunners account in the thrilling 4-3 win over Leicester City. The Frenchman took just under two minutes to score his first goal in the Premier League and his manager was understandably pleased with his impact, having signed him for a club record £52m from Lyon.


Speaking after the game, as reported by the ​Daily Star, Wenger said, "Every game he is stronger. Overall he is adapting slowly to the way we want to play. He’s a collective, intelligent player."



Another man who made the headlines was super sub Olivier Giroud who scored the late winner and Wenger is happy that competition for places up front in really high, with Danny Welbeck also scoring and Alexis Sanchez set to return in a couple of weeks.



"It’s a long time since we’ve had so much quality," he said. "Giroud is in his prime and is at the top of his game. So, yes, we have quality."


Arsenal got off to the best start possible with Lacazette opening the scoring but goals from Shinji Okazaki and Jamie Vardy put Leicester ahead before Welbeck equalized before halftime. Another Vardy goal put Leicester ahead once again but Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud stepped off the bench to score and win the game for Arsene Wenger's side.
