Arsenal climbed back into the top half of the Premier League table on Sunday afternoon with an impressive 3-1 win over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.
After falling behind to an impressive solo goal from Belgian midfielder Youri Tielemans, Arsenal came fighting back to record an impressive 3-1 away victory, meaning they came from behind to win for the second time in just four days.
The Gunners drew level through a David Luiz header, after he connected with Willian’s excellent free-kick delivery, before Alexandre Lacazette, who was recalled to the starting line-up in place of Europa League hero Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, tucked away a penalty right on the stroke of half time.
The win ensured the Gunners got back on track in the league after last weekend’s 1-0 defeat to Manchester City, meaning they can now take a great deal of confidence into next Saturday’s trip to Turf Moor to face Burnley.
On the win at the King Power Stadium, manager Arteta said: “I’m certainly happy with the performance of the team and again the character and composure that we showed.
“Coming here after a very short turnaround from Benfica and going down very early puts the game in a really difficult position against a Leicester team.
“We had some really good moments in the game, we looked really solid, we dominated the game and I think overall we deserved the win.”
Whilst Arteta enjoyed what he watched from the touchline, the Gunners’ players certainly enjoyed what they delivered on the pitch, with no shortage of them reacting to their second successive victory.
