Football News

Arsenal were fortunate to draw with Leicester City on Saturday evening after the Foxes had not one, but two penalty appeals turned down.

Riyad Mahrez and Ahmed Musa both had shouts rejected by Mark Clattenburg as the sides picked up their first Premier League points of the season.

It was a game of few clear-cut chances - Mahrez went close late on - but that's not to say it wasn't an entertaining encounter.

Arsenal fans were upset with Arsene Wenger after the game, and let him know via banners and chants.

But one cause for celebration was that Nacho Monreal made his 100th Premier League appearance. Ok, maybe that's probably not worth celebrating.

Here are seven things you missed from the game.

Who knew Theo Walcott could defend?

Or that Petr Cech is Ronaldinho in disguise?

Leicester fans salute Jamie Vardy

This game was dubbed the ‘Vardy derby’ after the Leicester striker snubbed Arsenal in the summer.

“Every time I thought about it, my heart and head were coming to the same answer, which was to stay,” Vardy told BT Sport.

And Leicester supporters delighted in trolling Arsenal with a couple of cheeky chants.

Arsenal’s ‘Bee Movie’ kit draws mixed response

Arsenal’s yellow and black design, which they wore for the first time in the league, drew a mixed response on social media. But Rio Ferdinand’s son approves.

Nacho Monreal hit a century

You wouldn’t believe it, but there was once a time when Nacho Monreal was derided by Arsenal fans.

That he’s made it to 100 league appearances is a testament to his hard work and thick skin.

The Ox’s turnaround continues

It’s fair to say that Arsenal fans will have expected Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to be further along in his development by now.

The 23-year-old hasn’t improved in his five years at the Emirates Stadium, causing many to wonder if leaving Arsenal might be best for him.

But the former Southampton winger continued his impressive start to the season. It’s that new hair colour.

Granit Xhaka got stuck in

Not bad.
