Classy Arsenal Set King Power Stadium on Fire.

Theo Walcott Scores Against Leicester.

It rained goals at the King Power Stadium on Saturday as Arsenal ended Leicester City's unbeaten run in the Premier League. Theo Walcott, Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud all recorded their names on the scoresheet.

The hero of the day was Sanchez who bagged a hattrick in that 5-2 win. He put three into the Leicester goal after Walcott scored our first goal which was an equaliser to an earlier goal scored by the hosts. Giroud came off the bench to slot in the fifth and I bet that goal made fans forgive him for his red card which was one of the factors that made us lose our first Champions League game.

Vardy opened scoring for Leicester and at this point, cold gripped we the fans even though the sun was shining crazily. The tension did not last long. Theo just five minutes later Walcott received a Santi Cazorla pass through the middle and sent in a left-footed shot.

Before the end of the first half, Sanchez put Arsenal ahead with his first goal of the season.

The Chilean international got two more in the second half, the first of them was a header from Mesut Ozil's aerial pass while the other which came 10 minutes to the end of the match was a superb smash from a solo performance.

Vardy added another for Leicester to make it 4-2 but Giroud sealed the day up with a fifth. At the end, three points were gained and Arsenal are now 4th position on the league table behind Man Utd, Man City and Westham.

Something came to my notice today. When Sanchez joined us last season, his first league goal came in a 1-1 draw away at Leicester. This season, he hasn't scored before our trip to Leicester and it was on this same ground he still scored his first for the season. Is that not amazing?

Elsewhere, Manchester City were humiliated by Tottenham Hotspur. They suffered a 4-1 defeat. Chelsea were a bit lucky, they managed a 2-2 draw after initially trailing by two goals against Newcastle United.

A happy and nice week it is already for every Gunner out there. On Wednesday, it was a 2-1 win over Spurs and today, we halted the unbeaten run of our opponents in grand style. We rock!
