Well that was tough at the start for Arsenal, and tough to watch at times and I am not talking about the game not being on TV. The important thing was the result though and the Gunners got the win over Leicester that we expected, just.
For a large part of the first half, Arsenal were frustrated and unable to break down a well organised away side that were playing well. They were having some joy going forward as well with Hector Bellerin having a hard time at right back.
And Arsenal took some time to get going but did not have to wait too long before the opener after 27 minutes. It came from Koscielny getting on the end of an Ozil corner and the German earned that corner after drawing a good save from Schwarzer with a run into the box and a cheeky improvised shot.
But we then struggled to impose ourselves and had the worrying scenes of Alexis Sanchez struggling after getting a knock to his left knee. The Foxes looked like they might draw level before Ozil again created our second, stinging the hands of the keeper whose parry was smashed in sharply by Walcott.
The second half was even tougher for us as we could not add a goal and were left hanging on after a somewhat controversial Leicester goal from Kramaric which Cambiasso seemed to handle in the build up. We also lost Ramsey to injury shortly after he came on and it was real relief to hear the ref´s whistle.
Fair play to Leicester and well done to the lads for grinding out a win when we were far from our fluent best.
