Finally Arsenal Seal First Away Win At Top Three Premier League Team In Six Year

 

Yes finally Arsenal recorded their first away win against a top three Premier League team for six years when they beat Leicester 3-1 on Sunday. The Gunners went behind just six minutes into the clash with the Foxes as Youri Tielemans fired low past Bernd Leno, but Mikel Arteta’s team fought back later in the half when a free-kick from Willian was met by the head of David Luiz and evaded Kasper Schmeichel’s grasp, before Alexandre Lacazette converted a penalty in stoppage time.
Nicolas Pepe then rounded off the scoring in the second half as the visitors recorded their second win in six Premier League matches.

2015 – This was Arsenal’s first away victory against a team starting the day in the top three of the Premier League table since January 2015 (2-0 v Manchester City) – they were winless in their last 14 such games coming into today (D3 L11). Test.

The last time they did so was in January 2015 when they beat Manchester City 2-0, when Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla scored to seal the three points for Arsene Wenger’s team.

They are just the second duo to have scored Premier League goals for Arsenal and another team, following in the footsteps of John Hartson and Ian Wright, who did so at West Ham.

Meanwhile, Pepe kept up his good form with his fifth goal in 18 matches in the league. He has now matched the tally he recorded in 31 appearances last season.
