At the end of the Premier League season this game against Leicester City will just be three points on our total. And even if those points do not turn out to be crucial in the grand scheme of things, I think that wining this game could be.
To be perfectly honest Arsenal were lucky to beat a very good Foxes team that missed a few great chances both before we scored and after as they almost came back from 2-0 down. Even though I’m sure Arsene Wenger would have warned against complacency, he and the players were clearly surprised at how ell the bottom Premier League side played, especially Kramaric and Mahrez.
On another day or with better finishing or luck they would have got a result and it would have left the Gunners in a real pickle after the derby defeat on Saturday. Confidence would have been knocked and the fans would have been up in arms, never mind the league position. As it was, a few moments of class from Ozil, Koscielny and Walcott along with some defensive grind helped us dodge that big bullet heading our way.
We have a few days now to recover and plan for the FA cup and then another week before the next league game against Crystal Palace. The Gunners will need to play better than tonight and I’m sure we will but for now Arsenal fans should be more relieved than concerned about what happened against Leicester.
