Arsenal produces a fightback to come from behind and beat Leicester.

After a fightback against Benfica in the midweek, Arsenal produced another comeback to claim all three points after scoring three goals in 17 minutes on either side of half-time in a 3-1 victory at Leicester. This win was crucial in preventing the Foxes from moving to second place in the EPL table.

Youri Tielemans opened the scoring to put the host ahead in the sixth minute after making a good run before crowning it with a good finish into the bottom left corner, beating Leno who punishing Arsenal’s poor defending. Arsenal leveled things up in the 39th minute through David Luiz’s clever header from a Willian free-kick just outside the penalty box after Thomas had fouled troublesome Pepe.

VAR was in use once again as it had previously overturned Arsenal’s chance to score from a penalty but instead, the referee awarded a free-kick just outside the penalty box. This time Pepe’s shot struck Ndidi’s hand in the box and after intervention by VAR the referee awarded gunners a penalty which was beautifully converted by Alexandre Lacazette deep into the end of the first half.


It was Pepe who extended Arsenal’s lead on the 52nd minute with a simple close-range finish from Willian’s cross. Pepe, who was accorded the man of the match has scored four goals in his last seven Premier League starts for the Gunners, while his counterpart Willian has now made five assists for the gunners which is more than any Arsenal player this season.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta after the match said he was really happy with the performance of his team as it showed a lot of character and composure He acknowledged how it was difficult for his team after it went down very early, but he was pleased with how his team produced solid moments and finally produced the result that it deserved.
