For Arsenal's part, it wasn't helping that Kasper Schmeichel was at that point meeting every test in a way that the home defence was not, blocking an Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain shot at one moment and then denying Lacazette the next.
"People might say he had better players around him but let's not forget that Leicester won the league two years ago".

"However, it's the Man City situation that's the concern and we've seen it all before with Robin van Persie's move to Manchester United".
Over 80 minutes down and Leicester leading by a goal, it looked as if Arsenal was facing a crushing defeat, but Aaron Ramsey's 84th minute goal spun the mood of the stadium on its head.
A crossfield ball found Hector Bellerin on the right, with the full-back playing the ball back to Mohamed Elneny, who floated in a first-time cross.
