Arsenal's Granit Xhaka and Sead Kolasinac celebrate

Jamie Vardy has now scored five goals in his last five Premier League appearances against Arsenal.

Just as the atmosphere had turned sour, goals to Aaron Ramsey, assisted by Granit Xhaka, and Olivier Giroud allowed Arsenal to hold on in the last five minutes to grab a courageous victory.

"It's a long time since we so much quality", Wenger said. But three points are three points, and Arsene Wenger will surely be happy to take them into next Saturday's match at Stoke City. It's no doubt going to spoil all of us because the rest of the games are going to suck by comparison. "They all deserve to play".

The response, however, was exactly what manager Craig Shakespeare would have been hoping for. But if the rest of the Premier League season is half as good as what we saw today, we're going to be in for a very special season.

"We're gonna win the league!" sang the Leicester fans and they nearly had a third goal to cheer when Okazaki's header from Christian Fuchs's cross bounced just wide of Cech's left-hand post.

Trump tweeted Friday: "Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely". Trump by name. "Things will happen to them like they never thought possible, OK?"

The match was far from flawless for Arsenal, who during the second half resorted to a back line that featured Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain at right back, a pair of fullbacks in the center (Nacho Monreal, Kolasinac) and Hector Bellerin playing on the left. We showed what we're capable of, showed heart and spirit.

"After that, we get the efficiency".

Marc Albrighton's deep cross caught out the Arsenal backline, including goalkeeper Petr Cech, and led to Harry Maguire's knock-down finding Okazaki, who made no mistake with his close-range header.

Wenger revealed after Friday's win that Giroud, who has scored 97 goals in 231 appearances since joining from Montpellier in 2012, could have left the Gunners this summer.

"I don't want him to go".

Former Capitals Coach Bryan Murray Dies at 74
"The Anaheim Ducks family mourns the loss of Bryan Murray , who passed away this morning", the Ducks said in a statement . Murray worked that season and another as general manager of the Senators, who confirmed his death Saturday.

Groans could be heard around the Emirates soon after when Okazaki glanced a header wide, but those groans turned into cheers on the brink of half time as Welbeck rolled home after being picked out by Kolasinac alongside him.

Again a set-piece proved Arsenal's undoing as Mahrez's in-swinging corner from the right was nodded in by Vardy.

Schmeichel was alert to prevent Hector Bellerin finishing off a slick Arsenal attack.

Aaron Ramsey came off the bench to level with eight minutes remaining before Giroud wrapped up the points.
