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. "We put ourselves in a commanding position and a few lapses in concentration have cost us", Vardy said after the game.
Lacazette's performance was a source of confidence for the Arsenal fans and Giroud is happy that his compatriot has taken little time to settle down in his new team.
Carragher was speaking shortly after Giroud had helped Arsenal to an incredible comeback win against Leicester at the Emirates.
Although Arsenal signed off in May by lifting the FA Cup, a fifth-place finish ensured the north London club failed to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in two decades.
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.
Ramsey capitalized with an equalizer in the 83rd minute.
Giroud also spoke to reporters, saying he's hoping for a bigger role in the future after coming on as a substitute on Friday: "That's a nice start, but obviously I prefer to be on the pitch".

At some stage, I opened the door for him because I knew that I had many strikers. "He has a big weight in this squad and it was a relief for me that he chose to stay".
After the victory, the Arsenal boss was quick to praise his team and the impact Lacazette made on his Premier League debut.
"The second goal was scored after a poor pass, which can happen, but we conceded the other two after corners".
Gunners chief Wenger said: "Going forward and character wise we have been great".
