Aaron Ramsey admits Danny Drinkwater’s tackle was a sore one

Arsenal secured a dramatic 2-1 victory over Premier League title rivals Leicester City on Sunday afternoon thanks to a late goal from Danny Welbeck.

But Welbeck's last-gasp winner didn't tell the entire story. There were a number of controversies throughout the contest; referee Martin Atkinson awarded the Foxes a penalty on the stroke of half-time after Nacho Monreal brought down Jamie Vardy in the box while Leicester full-back Danny Simpson committed two rash fouls and was sent off. 

That most definitely wasn't all; with around 18 minutes on the clock remaining at the Emirates, Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater committed a horror tackle on Welshman Aaron Ramsey.

The challenge was reckless and completely mistimed, but, to the surprise of the Arsenal faithful, Drinkwater managed to avoid punishment. 

Unsurprisingly, Arsenal fans were left bemused by the decision, but thankfully Ramsey managed to get back to his feet. On another day, he could have picked up a serious injury. 

Following the incident, Arsenal's midfield maestro revealed that his counterpart apologised to him immediately after the clash. 

Posting a message on Instagram, Ramsey stated: "Yes @the_baldwinners, was a sore one but credit to him, apologised straight after the game."

Sky Sports, meanwhile, claim that the Football Association won't take retrospective action on the Leicester City man after Atkinson revealed that he saw the incident.

Huge win 

There should be no underestimating Arsenal's huge result at this stage of the season.  

With four teams battling it out to secure the prestigious honour - Manchester City and Spurs are well in the race - the Gunners must find their best form over the coming weeks and months.  

Arsene Wenger certainly has a squad capable of overhauling the likes of Tottenham and Leicester City, but the club must now deliver on a consistent basis. It's finally time for the Gunners to come to prominence in England's elite division. 

The likes of Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and co. must steer Arsenal to the title.
