Leicester 2-5 Arsenal: Vote for Player-Ratings/MotM

An early goal from the impressive James Vardy gave Arsenal an unwelcome shock just 13 minutes in, but from there, it was all Arsenal as we strained Leicester's defense to the breaking point. Were it not for some poor choices, poor finishing, and getting in each other's way in the box, we might have found a few more goals. As it goes, though, we seized the match by the scruff. Walcott equalised five minutes after Vardy's goal, Alexis found the go-ahead and bagged a brace shortly after halftime. He would get his hat-trick in the 83rd with a brilliant shot. Credit Leicester for fighting back, creating numerous chances before Vardy scored his second in the waning minutes. Giroud finally found his goal in extra-time to account for the final score (and equalling the number of Prem goals we've scored all season). For as much as conceding twice was irritating, it was a relief to see us carve a team open a bit more than we have to date and to see Alexis finally break the seal. Let's give the lads what they deserve in the poll below.
