Why Allegri is the Brilliant and the Natural choice to Replace the Irreplaceable Arsene Wenger and what Wenger thinks of himIt was one of those games that any neutral would have thoroughly enjoyed, especially given the circumstance that was unfolding. Leicester City were at their very best on the night, hitting the Gunners on the counter with reckless abandon, whilst The Gunners kept the foot on the gas from kick off. Having failed to deal with an ominous corner, The Gunners found themselves a goal down from a composed finish, inside the 6 yard box by Nigerian International Kelechi Iheanacho.
This was against the run of play and must have felt like a sucker punch ? for The Gunners. So much so, that just a minute after, Arsenal youngster and fan favourite, Konstatinos Mavropanos hesitated on the ball, got charged down by Kelechi Iheanacho again and had no choice but to pull him down by the shorts, which led to a straight red ? card for the youngster. This was barely 15 minutes into the game. Off went Welbeck and in came Skhodran Mustafi, who was slot into a four man defence in a tactical change by the box. This seemed to have stemmed the tide as waves of counter attacks from Leicester City were effectively dealt with, to keep the scoreline 1 nil into the break. The Gunners resumed the second half of the game like a possessed team, breaking opposition plays and displaying dominance over the hosts, despite their 1 man advantage. It came as no surprise, when The Gunners eventually got an equalizer, courtesy of some dodged attacking play on the right side by Ainsley Maitland-Niles, who was on the overlap. His cutback into the area was met by no other than Arsenal’s fox in the box, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang who saw his first effort, brilliantly saved by Eldin Jakupovic but he was not to be denied, as he blasted his rebound effort into the roof of the net from an uncomfortable angle.

Was it a red ? card? Well, considering it was a premeditated foul on the opponent who was some distance from goal and had another defender flagging him… Well in my opinion, a yellow would have sufficed. That is not to say that it was a wrong call but I believe it was a harsh one, irrespective of bias. The call certainly aided the opposition however valiant, The Gunners were, after the fact.

10 man Gunners lose for seventh straight away Premier League game. Decent end to end game with Cech in great form. A touching chant of ‘There’s Only Arsene Wenger’ from the Foxes fans at the end.
“I am upset with myself that I cannot really enjoy it because I want so much to win always that I cannot even enjoy that in the right way!” “But I am grateful and would like to thank them very much.”COYG!!!
