Leicester 1-3 Arsenal LIVE SCORE: Pepe, Lacazette pen and Luiz put Gunners in control in Premier League


ARSENAL are in charge at Leicester after coming from behind in a huge Premier League clash.

Youri Tielemans had the freedom of the pitch as he strolled through the Gunners’ backline to put the Foxes ahead.

But David Luiz then headed home an equaliser five minutes before the break.

And after a VAR check, Lacazette thumped home a penalty following a handball by Wilfred Ndidi.

Arsenal then began the second half as they ended the first with Nicolas Pepe tapping home a third from close range.

    83. With just a little over 5 minutes to go plus stoppage time, Arteta gives Aubameyang a run out as he replaces Lacazette.

  • LEICESTER 1-2 ARSENAL

    49. Just as I thought, Harvey Barnes has had to come off on a stretcher.

    It didn’t look good as soon as he signaled to the technical area but it’s a chance for Cengiz Under to come on and show Brendan Rodgers what he is capable of.

  • LEICESTER 1-2 ARSENAL

    47. Harvey Barnes may have to make way too.

    The winger just seemed to over stretch for the ball and has twisted his knee in the process.
