[EPL HIGHLIGHTS] Arsenal 4 – 3 Leicester City ,Arsenal Late Show Stuns Leicester, Goals & Highlights





Arsenal produced a stunning late comeback to beat Leicester 4-3 as the Premier League returned in thrilling fashion on Friday night.

Arsene Wenger’s men were 3-2 down with seven minutes remaining but goals from substitutes Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud stole the game from under Leicester’s noses.

Big-money signing Alexandre Lacazette took just two minutes to score on his debut but he was outshone by the visitor’s No 9 as Jamie Vardy scored twice against the team that came close to signing him last summer.

In what was a pulsating start to the new season, which was kicking off for the first time on a Friday, Leicester equalised within two minutes of Lacazette’s opener through Shinji Okazaki and then took a shock lead through Vardy.

Arsenal responded just before the break through Danny Welbeck but Vardy headed home from a Riyad Mahrez corner on 59 minutes. As the home fans started to become restless, Arsenal staged a late fightback with Ramsey and Giroud both finding the net from close range within two minutes of each other to send the Emirates into delirium.

Highlights

1. 19:47
GOAL! ARSENAL 1-0 LEICESTER (Lacazette, 2)

We’re off to a flying start at the Emirates as Lacazette gets on the end of Elneny’s cross and heads the Gunners into an early lead. Absolute scenes in the stands as the Gunners’ summer signing scores on his home debut. What a start!

2. 19:50
GOAL! ARSENAL 1-1 LEICESTER (Okazaki, 5)

Five minutes on clock and we have two goals, incredible! Maguire does brilliantly at the far post to head a deep cross into the area back across goal and there’s Shinji Okazaki, who heads the Foxes level.

3. 20:15
GOAL! ARSENAL 1-2 LEICESTER (Vardy, 29)

Unbelievable! They’ve been on the back foot for the past 15 minutes but Leicester pounce on an error to take the lead. Elneny cheaply gives away possession in his own half, no one closes down Albrighton and he centres for Jamie Vardy who lashes the ball home from close range. Arsenal all at sea at the back.

4. 20:33
GOAL! ARSENAL 2-2 LEICESTER (Welbeck, 45+3)

What an end to the half! Arsenal haul themselves level with the last kick before the interval as Lacazette’s scuffed shot falls into the path of Kolasinac, who squares to Danny Welbeck to stroke beyond Schmeichel. What a game!

5. 20:59
GOAL! ARSENAL 2-3 LEICESTER (Vardy, 56)

It was only a matter of time before this Arsenal backline were punished but I have to admit I didn’t see it coming from a corner. Mahrez whips the ball into the near post where Vardy steals a march on Monreal and glances the ball into the far corner. Arsenal’s defence is a shambles!

6. 21:26
GOAL! ARSENAL 3-3 LEICESTER (Ramsey, 83)

Cometh the hour, cometh the man. He’s scored so many important goals for Arsenal in recent years and this is right up there as Aaron Ramsey controls at the far post and drills the ball beyond Schmeichel. Game on!

7. 21:28
GOAL! ARSENAL 4-3 LEICESTER (Giroud, 85)

Incredible! Absolutely incredible! The two substitutes sent on by Arsene Wenger score a goal apiece in two minutes to spark scenes of delirium inside the Emirates. Olivier Giroud rises highest at a corner and heads the ball over the line, via the crossbar, with goal-line technology confirming the goal.
