Xhaka: Lester only had the target
Granit Shaka isn’t a happy boy either, he tells Sky Sports …
“It was a great opportunity to rise, we wanted to win but in the end we lost. Leicester had nothing but his goal, we had some chances in the first half and it is difficult to take words very close after the match.
“We made some mistakes, if you make mistakes and if you do it at that level you will be punished. Fouls are part of football. We have to analyze them, look forward, take the next step on Thursday, then go to Old Trafford to get something.”
Arteta: I don’t know how the goal was canceled
The Arsenal coach spoke to Sky Sports about Alexandre Lacazette’s effort, who was stopped at the start of the first half for offside against Granit Schaka.
“I am very disappointed. We were in our hands in the first half and I don’t know how the goal was canceled,” Arteta told Sky Sports.
They grabbed space at the back and at that moment we lost the match. “
Brendan Rodgers was speaking to BBC Sport about his spell …
“That is why he is a great player, he makes great contributions in the big matches. It shows you the level he has reached as a global player. I’m lucky to be here.”
Ratings for Arsenal players
Our man Simon Collings gives his verdict on Arsenal …
(4-3-3): Lino 6; Bellerin 5, Louise 6 (49 Mostafie 5), Gabriel 6, Tierney 7; Ceballos 5, Shaka 5, Party 5; Saka 6 (65 Bibi 5), Lacazette 4 (81 Nikitiah 5), Aubameyang 5.
Star man: Kieran Tierney. It was the best bad group on a tough night for Arsenal. It appears to fit into the new 4-3-3 formation.
The match winner was speaking to Sky Sports …
“We got through the storm, started getting into it, playing well and coming out with a 1-0 win. It’s a big thing for us but it’s just the next game. We had some bad results and just wanted to correct it.
“Thankfully, I had an impact and we took the three points home, and that gives us a little boost, because the last two games weren’t good enough and now we can build on that.”
Jimmy Vardy says it was always a plan for him to come for the last half hour and try to make an impact. He definitely did.
Brendan Rodgers is smiling from ear to ear. His master plan worked to absolute perfection.

90 + 3 minutes: That would seal it!
Fardi runs from Mustafa’s back and enters a narrow corner but Lino stands tall and ends up hitting him on the head and going back.
90 minutes: There will be five minutes added …
87 minutes: Eddie Nkeitiah now, tough, it’s Kieran Tierney who was sacrificed instead of Alexandre Lacazette now.

You just know that, right?
Jimmy Vardy, off the bench, has done it again with the Foxes, racing back to meet the rarest occasional and giving visitors the top spot!
Simon Collings is located in UAE
Arteta’s last shot is now returned as Nikitia prepares to come. Lacazette was poor tonight, never really seen.
74 minutes: Johnny Evans is next in the book on his side in a collision that injured Tillman and Lacazette after a head-fight.
68 minutes: Good football, good conservation. Aubameyang reaches the secondary line and approaches the far corner as Bellerin reaches for a powerful shot on goal but Schmeichel equals it.

Another good performance from Saka is there. He’s quickly becoming a regular part of that front trio and Pepe off the bench is a great choice for Arteta. He changed the match against Sheffield United. Can he do it now?
66 minutes: It’s been a while since Saka played because I guess he’s not seriously injured but Nicolas Pepe is not there.
63 minutes: Wonderful decision. Hector Bellerin, who’s already booked, slides on Justin and doesn’t get the ball.
He is already pleading with the referee, and presumably worried that he might be on the verge of expulsion, but he hasn’t been called in to make a mistake. Lester, half angry, half confused.
60 minutes: Here’s the change – Jamies Vardy replaces Praet.
57 minutes: Alexandre Lacazette is the next guy in the book as Johnny Evans picks out as he shaves half-midway through the air and wins a header.
Jimmy Fardy is ready.
