Arsenal 1 - Leicester City 1 match report: when a draw feels like a loss

Photo by James Williamson - AMA/ Oh, what could have been for the Gunners. It started so well for Arsenal against Leicester today.

Arsenal play host to Leicester City today at the Emirates in yet another important Premier League clash. The Gunners recent four-match (three in the PL) winning streak has catapulted them into 7th in the table but dropping points could see them crash back down as many as three places.
