Arsenal earned three crucial points as Robert Huth’s own goal propelled them to a 1-0 victory over Leicester City.

Although there were high expectations from this fixture, the match took a rather drab turn as both teams looked extra-cautious about any sort of attack. The Emirates stadium was unusually empty as well, and this could potentially be a warning sign for Arsenal.

However, for the few who showed up and the ones who saw the entire game on TV, were treated to a few moments of sheer bizarre-ness as Alexis Sanchez pulled a Sergio Busquets (remember the infamous video of him covering his face with his hands and peeking out).

Despite the own goal, Huth was one of Leicester’s best players last night. Also, this marked Jamie Vardy’s first visit to the Emirates after rejecting a summer move to Arsenal.

At the end of the day, a win is a win after all, and this was another example of how Wenger has started playing around with his formations.

When it comes to the best tweets of the night, Alexis Sanchez’s failed deception comes out on top. Here’s how Twitter reacted:

To make matters worse, Sanchez later tweeted a picture of him with a cut on his lip which he allegedly got because of the throw in. That just added more fuel to the fire, as Twitter trolled him endlessly and went on a rampage.

Meanwhile, Robert Huth’s own goal will give Arsenal’s top-four chances a massive boost. However, this was not the first time that Huth gifted an own goal to the opponent. A similar situation occurred back in December 2016 when Leicester City played Sunderland.

While Huth was trolled mercilessly, Arsenal fans were in seemingly high spirits.

Arsenal will be looking to continue the winning streak as Wenger seems to be getting increasingly comfortable with making changes. Leicester City, on the other hand, did put up a good fight until that unfortunate own goal. Once this season ends, they will need to seriously evaluate everything about their team ahead of next season.
