Arsenal fans were lauding Jamie Vardy’s opening goal in Leicester City’s 2-0 win over the Gunners at the King Power Stadium yesterday.
The England international scored the opening goal after brilliant link-up play between Youri Tielemans and Harvey Barnes after which the Belgium international crossed for Vardy to tap-in (via BBC).
Can Arsenal keep hold of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang?
Arsenal missed out on the chance to sign the Leicester striker after he turned them down when the Gunners seemingly had a deal wrapped up back in 2016 (via The Metro).
The result leaves Unai Emery’s side in sixth place, nine points behind the Foxes, who sit in the top four.
Despite the loss, fans were impressed with the goal from the 32-year-old as they took to Twitter to react. Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:
What a goal tho. They’re playing the Arsenal way.
