However Arsenal, led by the talismanic Alexis Sanchez, scored a 5-2 victory; with the Chilean scoring his first goals of the season and finding the net for the first-time in over 14 hours of Premier League footballer.
ALEXIS Sanchez rediscovered his goalscoring touch in spectacular style this afternoon (Saturday) as he scored a stunning hat-trick away at Leicester.
Following successive defeats for Manchester City, who lost 4-1 to Tottenham, Arsenal are now just three points off top spot and welcome leaders Manchester United to the Emirates on Sunday. “He came up to me outside the dressing room and basically said “Do you ever stop running?” admitted Vardy this week.
“You have to understand the definition of that, but overall he is a striker who is mobile and works hard for the team”.
“Sanchez is back to his level”.
“I want us to score goals but I must say Leicester played well and to play a good football game there needs to be two teams”, Wenger told reporters.
“I think I have plenty of players that are world class”, the Arsenal manager continued. Leicester coach Claudio Ranieri was equally complimentary: “He is an incredible player, he can do everything, and the ball and he were born together”. “But he is very pleased”, he said.
The Foxes will be without Matthew James and Nathan Dyer, as the former is out of action for the remainder of 2015, while the latter is still recovering from a knee injury. With Giroud getting sent off against Zagreb a couple of weeks ago he will be suspended for this game, but Theo Walcott played for 80 minutes yesterday and is certainly not used to playing two games in any week!
“It’s important to learn something but now the reaction is important in the next match“.
“I want to joke a bit but when we are working I change face and I change my voice”.
Wayne Rooney, Harry Kane and Alexis Sanchez all end their goal droughts whilst their respective teams all enjoy comfortable wins. It’s impossible, when you go to press they move the ball very quickly.
And Arsenal hurled themselves level from the resulting counter-attack, Santi Cazorla sliding through to Walcott, who raced in behind Robert Huth to squeeze home a finish off the left-hand upright. We tried to do our best and created good chances and some were unlucky.
