Arsenal beat Leicester City 2-1 at the Emirates thanks to a last-gasp goal from Danny Welbeck.

Leicester City took the lead in the first half when Jamie Vardy scored his 19th goal of the season from the penalty spot.

The Foxes went into the half time interval ahead but got off to a terrible start in the second-half when Danny Simpson was sent off.

Arsenal piled on the pressure making the most of their man advantage and Theo Walcott eventually found a way through for the equaliser.

The Gunners had to wait until the fourth minute of additional time to score the winner. Mesut Ozil delivered a pinpoint set-piece ball that found the head of Welbeck who was playing his first game of the season.

The victory saw Arsenal move two points behind leaders Leicester City who are currently first on 53 points.
