Leicester 1-3 Arsenal: Gunners fight back from behind, Willian shines

By Samuel   |   February 28, 2021

Arsenal carried on their momentum from their midweek Europa League success by beating Leicester at The King Power Stadium.

The Foxes took the lead via a great solo goal from Youri Tielemans. Mikel Arteta’s side responded well to going behind, though. David Luiz equalised in the 39th-minute.

Wilfried Ndidi handled it in the area in stoppage time to gift Arsenal a penalty. Alexandre Lacazette made no mistake as he clinically found the net. Nicolas Pepe made it three in the second half to round off an impressive victory for the Gunners.

Arsenal currently sits in 9th place, with Jose Mourinho side playing later in the after, and may eventually finish 10th at the end of this game week.

Willian had an all round performance, one of his best in Arsenal shirt, and could have easily gotten two assists in his name, which will make him 2 assists off his 8 season career high of 7 in the Premier League. He did it twice at Chelsea, 17/18 and 19/20.

Willian should have the assist on that 3rd goal. If it gets added, he’ll be 2 assists off his 8 season career high of 7 in the Premier League. He did it twice with Chelsea, 17/18 and 19/20. #LEIARS
