Vardy Continues Arsenal HauntThe English forward restored the lead for the hosts from 12 yards as he continues to find the back of the net against Arsenal. He blasted the ball into the roof of the net thus giving Czech star Petr Cech no chance (of making a save) from the spot for Leicester City.
Brilliant Riyad MahrezThe match reports and analysis including the tactical deliberations would not be complete without the mention of Riyad Mahrez’s contribution to the match. Just like Demarai Gray (who won the Penalty scored by Jamie Vardy in the box) following a tickling from Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Mahrez was superb as well in the match for Leicester City. He crowned it all with a brilliant goal as he made a mess of the Arsenal defense line.
Aubameyang among the GoalsThe Arsenal star was on the score sheet as he founds the net to bring his side back on level terms. The former Borussia Dortmund star was well placed to bundle the rebound into the roof of the net via the second attempt after his initial effort was saved by the Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel. Aubameyang might have joined the club in the transfer window but arguably he has stood out on top among the Arsenal mix just a few months after joining the club.
His goal scoring performance continues to exonerate him from the club’s shady outing in the season as he found the net twice against Burnley in Arsene Wenger’s last home game as Arsenal manager on Sunday.
