Arsenal fans slam ‘shocking’ defending in build up to Leicester goal

Arsenal fans slam ‘shocking’ Mohamed Elneny and Pablo Mari for their woeful defending in build up to Youri Tielemans’ goal for Leicester, as one calls Egyptian midfielder a ‘coward’ before Gunners get their act together

Arsenal fans have taken to social media to vent their disgust at the Gunners’ terrible defending that led to Leicester City‘s opening goal on Sunday. 

Having seen Leicester enjoy the better start in the game, they were gifted the lead in the sixth minute. Foxes midfielder Youri Tielemans picked up the ball on the right side by the half-way line, and drove into the cavernous space in front of him towards the Arsenal box.

Gunners defender Pablo Mari bizarrely jogged away from Tielemans as he made it all the way to the penalty area to smash the ball across goalkeeper Bernd Leno into the bottom right corner.
