Nicolas Pepe was the main man for the Gunners capping off a 5 star showing at the King Power with a goal in their 3-1 win. Things went downhill for Leicester after the Tielamans goal. Arsenal dominated the ball ,Arteta’s instruction clearly targeting inexperienced full back Thomas(not Partey) of Leicester with special treatment from Pepe. Thomas more often had to foul Pepe. The ref had given a pen to Arsenal midway through the half after Tielamans had brought down Pepe just on the edge of the box. VAR canceled the pen and awarded a free kick instead.
Arsenal would get a more legitimate penalty later in the half. Not before a classy header by David Luiz who equalized for the away side. The penalty award was much more clear cut ,Ndidi stretching out his arm to block a cross. After the break, the fight seems to be sucked out of Leicester. Losing two players with injury who joined the likes of Maddison in the treatment room. Pepe scored an easy tap in after the ball fortunately ricocheted in his favor just after the break. Arsenal pushing for a top 6 finish. Should be an interesting battle with Liverpool and EVERTON for those spots.
