Arsenal stun Leicester 3-1

Arsenal rounded off a good week by coming from behind to claim an impressive 3-1 victory over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.

The hosts looked to have banished the memories of their painful Europa League exit midweek when midfielder Youri Tielemens fired a low shot into the far corner with just six minutes played.

But Mikel Arteta’s men didn’t put their heads down, as they took control of the game with incisive attacking play that was rewarded on the 39th minute when David Luiz brought them level.

The former Chelsea centre-back found space in the box to steer a header in from Willian’s free-kick.

Alexandre Lacazette then put them ahead after the video assistant referee (VAR) judged that Wilfred Ndidi had blocked Nicolas Pepe’s shot in the box with an outstretched arm.

Ivory Coast forward Pepe got his name on the scoresheet, tapping into an empty net after Willian’s cutback had deflected his way.

Leicester, who had influential winger Harvey Barnes stretchered off in the first-half, could have had a late consolation but Nigerian international Kelechi Iheanacho fired into the stands from six yards out.
