Arsenal unyielding in Premier League | Soccer

Arsenal will remain alone at the head of the English Premier League, after having triumphed this Saturday at the King Power Stadium by 0-1 over Leicester City. You “gunners“, who will be Sporting’s next opponents in the Europa League, are safe from any approach from Manchester City, who also play this Saturday with Bournemouth, and achieve a second consecutive victory after three defeats and a draw in the four previous games.

After VAR canceled a spectacular goal by the Belgian Trossard at 27′, Arsenal only managed to score a valid goal at the beginning of the second half, at 46′, in a move made by Gabriel Martinelli – but the team didn’t even celebrate the goal much, because the striker fell on the lawn for a few minutes, then ended up staying on the field until the end.

There were Portuguese on both benches, but only one of them entered. Ricardo Pereira, who is returning from a serious injury, had a few more minutes to play again – Brendan Rodgers put him on the field in the 85th minute. Fábio Vieira was not an option for Mikel Arteta in Leicester.

Arsenal have two home games left (Everton and Bournemouth) before traveling to Lisbon for their Europa League round of 16 first leg with Sporting on 9 March.
