The modern day invincibles vs the last gen version. Gotta be a resounding 3-1 home victory hasn't it?

Breathtaking match so far. Leicester are excellent to watch. All three goals have been from well worked counters.

Well at least I made Sanchez my captain in fantasy football.

Great for Sanchez. Punches Ivanovic last week...no one notices...scores a hat trick this week.

In all seriousness though, he's a superb player.

Cracking game that. Could have gone either way really, Leicester must have hit the woodwork two times in the first 10-20 minutes. In the end we were much more clinical than we have been in the first 6 games. Walcott actually looked like a decent striker today too.

Nice match, with a very entertaining rhythm. And Sánchez had a very good performance.

This was always going to happen. At the end of the day we play exactly how Arsenal would want everyone to play against them. We don't sit back and try to nick a goal now and then or park the bus, we go for the throat every time we have the ball and that's why we leave ourselves so exposed. For a team of Arsenals quality it does a lot of the work for them that they've struggled with this season because the gaps are always there to be exploited, they don't need to probe around the 8-10 men behind the ball and try to find them, they just need to be clinical when the opportunities inevitably present themselves.

Sanchez was brilliant. He's clearly back to his best now. Vardy also did brilliantly, could've had 4 goals today. Lecister do need to stop getting caught on the break though, Arsenal scored 2 goals from it.

Brilliant game, must admit I was still nervous at 3-1 but credit to Leicester City with their attacking football philosophy

Yeah, Leicester (and Ranieri) deserve loads of credit for this season. JimJams hit the nail on the head re: playing into Arsenal's hands - yet they still managed to make it a nervy affair in the first half and the likes of Alexis and Özil proved the difference. The former took his goals very well and the latter created chances for fun - his pass to Bellerin to cross for Alexis was arguably better than the floated assist for the 3rd goal. He was instrumental in creating the counter attack for Waclott's first, too. He could have near 10 assists already if Ramsey, Walcott, Alexis, and Giroud hadn't fluffed so many clear cut opportunities - Ramsey's miss in the first half at Stamford Bridge sticks out.

Leicester have a good chance to finish top half. When do you reckon Inler will get a chance in the starting XI, JJ?

He's had it, a few times actually and he's looked well off the pace in the games he's played. I think he's going to struggle to get himself in the side if his fitness doesn't step up a level.
