Arsenal’s recent winning run came to an end after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Leicester City at the Emirates last night.

The Gunners entered the game with a win in each of their last four games in all competitions, three of which were in the Premier League.

Mikel Arteta’s side had the chance to close the gap on the top five with a win here.

We started the game brightly, and Leicester City must have sensed that we meant business.

Although Leicester looked to control possession for much of the first half, we had the chances and the dangerous attacks.

Our attackers kept pressing at them while our midfield tried their best to ensure they didn’t get a sniff at our goal.

We took the lead on the 21st minute through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after a fine assist from Bukayo Saka.

We remained on top after the goal and Bukayo Saka almost netted shortly after he had provided the first goal.

Héctor Bellerín almost scored a few minutes later, but he was denied by a fine save as we kept the pressure on Leicester.

Kelechi Iheanacho had the ball in the back of the net with their first meaningful attack, but it was disallowed after he had fouled Sead Kolasinac.

There was still a chance for Lacazette but he headed straight at Kasper Schmeichel when he should have scored.

Leicester City emerged from the half time more determined to make something happen, but we soaked up their early pressure.

There were further attempts from both David Luiz and Kelechi Iheanacho as an improved Leicester City side matched the Gunners attack for attack.

Alex Lacazette appeared to have scored what should have sealed Arsenal’s win just before he was taken off, but it was correctly ruled out for offside.

Eddie Nketiah replaced Lacazette, but he would last less than five minutes before being shown a straight red card.

Arsenal began to struggle to hold on to their lead as Leicester took advantage of having a man up to pile on the pressure.

The Foxes would eventually score their equaliser on the 86th minute through Jamie Vardy.

The visitors continued to dominate the game, but we were able to see out the game with a draw.
