The Emirates Stadium erupted when Danny Welbeck nodded home his late winner in Arsenal's 2-1 victory against Leicester this afternoon.

The former Manchester United striker made his first appearance of the season for the Gunners, and got his timing just right as he emerged as a late second-half substitute to put his new side right in the title mix.

Leicester had taken the lead on the stroke of half-time thanks to a Jamie Vardy penalty after Nacho Monreal had brought the England forward down in the area.

The game turned when referee Martin Atkinson sent Danny Simpson off for a second bookable offence, and soon after Theo Walcott levelled things up.

Arsenal looked set to be frustrated however as they spurned a string of late chances, only for Welbeck to get on the end of Mesut Ozil's cross to send the north London crowd into delirium.

It wasn't just the home fans who lost the plot though - NBC Deportes, the Spanish arm of North American broadcaster NBC have posted a clip of their commentators going crazy as Welbeck tucks the ball home with 94 minutes on the clock.

The win means that Arsenal have closed the gap at the top of the table to Leicester to just two points with 12 games remaining. 

Arsene Wenger's men face a tough run of fixtures as the try to claim silverware this season, with an FA Cup tie against Hull to come before a Champions League showdown against Barcelona before taking on Manchester United in the Premier League.

Do you think Arsenal are now Premier League title favourites?
