Iheanacho on target as Leicester City stun Arsenal, 3-1

Iheanacho on target as Leicester City stun Arsenal, 3-1

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has blamed poor officiating for his side's 3-1 away defeat to Leicester City in the Premier League on Wednesday night.

The former Liverpool defender said on ESPN FC: "The one thing we have known for a long time about his Arsenal team is that they have got no backbone. His status as a Leicester City great is very much secure." .

While Fabregas has personal reasons for being thankful to Wenger, with Arsenal luring him away from Barcelona to become a star in Premier League, the World Cup victor feels that English football as a whole owes a debt of gratitude to "Le Professeur".

After learning that the 76-year-old has left intensive care, Wenger said: "It is very fantastic news and I'm very happy for that".

But Leicester were awarded a penalty when Henrikh Mkhitaryan brought down Demarai Gray inside the Arsenal penalty box. "But on the other hand I would say respect what has been built here".

The Premier League duo share the same room when on global duties with the Super Eagles and often hang out together too.

Alex Iwobi managed to pretty much sum up the Gunners' season in the form of a shot in the second half, as they were at that point chasing a victor.

"We live in a society where people want quick change and that has changed in recent years".

The French manager is backing his current side to challenge for the title next season claiming that the club has shown championship-winning form at home in his final campaign at the Emirates.

The coach was quoted saying, "Even with ten against 11 we looked like we could score at any moment and at 1-1 we had two situations with three against two, but we complicated our game a bit".

The Frenchman departs after a final game at Hudddersfield Town on Sunday and was in reflective mood as he contemplated his 22 years in charge. We had the confidence and the momentum and we finished well.

If you look at our season, at home we have championship winning form and away we have a effect of many things, the quality is there, the spirit is exceptional.

The 68-year-old continued: 'Will I manage England one day?

"I think the earlier, the better", Wenger said when asked if an appointment should be made ahead of the World Cup, but he refused to be drawn on who he favoured.
