Leicester City 1-3 Arsenal: Arsenal hit three past Foxes in a superb comeback win

Alexandre Lacazette-Arsenal

The Gunners completed a comeback to stun Leicester at King Power Stadium.

Arsenal had a memorable outing against Leicester City as they came from behind to win the game 3-1 at King Power Stadium.

Youri Tielemans put the hosts ahead inside six minutes, putting more pressure on Arteta’s men straightaway.

However, David Luiz headed in the equaliser in the 39th minute after a brilliant delivery from his Brazilian counterpart Willian. 

Arsenal went 2-1 up at the stroke of the half-time whistle when Alexandre Lacazette scored a precise penalty kick. It was his ninth goal of the season although he had the luxury to start only in fewer games. The Frenchman, perhaps, is also the current top scorer of the Gunners this season.

The North Londoners piled more pain on Leicester after Nicolas Pepe netted in an easy finish from what turned out to be Willian’s second assist of the night.

The Gunners successfully built on the thrilling win against Benfica in the Europa League earlier this week and they have moved to tenth place in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Foxes’ woes continued following their shocking elimination from the Europa League against Slavia Prague days ago.

Furthermore, Brendan Rodgers’ side have suffered a timely slump in the Premier League title race as they failed to go past Manchester United.

Mike Arteta will be hoping to build upon this victory as the Gunners have a mountain to climb for the top four race.
