Vardy laments another late Leicester reverse at Arsenal

Those hoping the club would further splash out in the transfer would have been disappointed - although perhaps not surprised - by Wenger's comments in a Thursday press conference however. "But of course at the moment I have now 33 players and it is very hard to manage on a daily basis such a high number".

Arsenal are ready to make Alexis Sanchez the highest-paid player in the Premier League, in order to convince the 28-year-old to stay at the club.

"Yes, because look at what City have done", he said.

Fredrik Ljungberg marked his debut with the final goal in a 3-0 win over Manchester United in September 1998, while Emmanuel Adebayor got off on the right foot away to Birmingham City in February 2006. "And it's not finished", Wenger added.

"At the moment the most active have been United, City and Liverpool a bit".

The Algerian worldwide won the PFA Players' Player of the Year award as Leicester won the title in 2015/16 and looked on the verge of leaving last summer before signing a new four-year deal.

Popularity of athletes in sports is generally driven by success. "And I didn't take anything that he said the week before personal, either".

Arsene Wenger had labelled them a doubt during his pre-match press conference, but will be delighted to welcome the trio back which will provide him more options going into the game against the Foxes.

Vardy terrorised a makeshift Arsenal defence throughout but was left to reflect on a last-gasp loss to the Gunners in north London for the third time in as many seasons.

How could Arsenal line up next season? We want him to be a nuisance. "We have plenty of the same type of player".

Giroud then sent the previously despondent Arsenal fans wild when he headed the 85th minute victor from a corner, Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel only managing to turn the ball onto the underside of the bar before it bounced over the line.

It could be the flawless opportunity to change the Arsenal manager's mind.
