Leicester 1-1 Arsenal

assAlexis Sanchez puts Arsenal ahead in the 22nd minute but the opponents level the score two minutes later through Leonardo Ulloa. This score puts the Gunners in the 7th position on the league table while Leicester City in 15th with two points from three matches. Wenger:

It was tough, Leicester played very well and defended with a lot of heart. Our attackers did well but on the other hand they were not fantastic they didn’t score. We are active in the window, we are working hard to find a solution. We try very hard. Nobody can ever predict what can happen in the last 24 hours. But if we had to buy a player every time you didn’t win a game it would be too easy. In the Premier League it is difficult to win games. That is the way it is.

Chelsea's Diego Costa scores the opening goal of the game against Leicester in the Premier LeagueDiego Costa gives his side the lead in the 63rd minute with an assist from Branislav Ivanovich.Then with a solo effort Eden Hazard seals the points with the second with 13 minutes left to the end of the game. Mourino:

We didn’t play good in the first half. Leicester came with great defensive intensity, trying to scare us in counter-attack and we were a bit slow – slow in moving the ball and slow thinking. We needed to change and we did that.

Pearson:

We’re disappointed. Key moments didn’t quite go our way today. I thought we played exceptionally well in the first half but it’s about taking your chances when you get them.
