Arsenal vs. Leicester Highlights
- Title : Arsenal vs. Leicester Highlights
Leicester had a 1-0 win at Arsenal on Sunday evening. For a long time, nothing went offensive with the Foxes. But then coach Brendan Rodgers showed a golden hand and substituted the winning goal.
The game started right away. After a long ball from the guests, Arsenal keeper Leno rushed out of his goal, but did not clear far enough. Maddison then pulled on the empty goal, but aimed too imprecisely (1st). On the other side, the ball suddenly wriggled in the net after a corner, and Lacazette hit with the help of the inside post (4th). But Xhaka was offside and handicapped Foxes keeper Schmeichel, so the goal did not count.
Afterwards it was chances quieter, Leicester concentrated almost exclusively on defending. The Gunners were the more active team, but they didn't generate a large number of chances either. In the 29th minute, Lacazette had the lead on his head, but he lacked timing from close range. And since Saka had put the ball on the outside net (42nd), it went goalless into the cabins.
Joker Vardy is there
Even after the break, there were hardly any scoring opportunities to be seen. Arsenal initially set the tone again, Bellerin missed the best chance of the second 45 minutes after a cross from Aubameyang (68th). And Leicester? That suddenly took the lead - and two players substituted by Coach Rodgers were responsible for it: Ünder found Vardy in the center, who completed a diving header from five meters (80th). The Arteta-Elf did not recover from this setback, Leno even prevented the possible 0: 2 (90 + 3) against Vardy.
