    SMS Message: I wonder if Arsenal could follow Chelsea's example and appoint a former player (Vieira or Arteta) it seems to be a good way to galvanise a frustrated fan base if Frank is anything to go by! from Louis

    Video caption: Leicester City 2-0 Arsenal: Brendan Rodgers impressed with 'very important' win

    Watch as Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers says he was very impressed with his side after they beat Arsenal 2-0 at home.

  4. 'The attitude was good, every player'

    Leicester 2-0 Arsenal


    Arsenal manager Unai Emery: "In the end, a bad result. Before the first goal we were in the match and in the second half we started to push in and create chances but they are in a good moment and they won.

    "The first half we defended well together and had some good transition, but they were pushing, doing the pressing and sometimes we broke the pressing and got in the box with two full-backs and also the strikers, and we had chances to score.

    "The second half we started better, we were pushing and showing we wanted to win. They work very well, the players felt comfortable and defended well and we had chances. With Mesut Ozil we keep the ball sometimes like we want and it is the way to carry on.

    "The attitude was good, every player. Now is time to rest with the international break. I'm sure we're going to improve after that. We need to achieve, at home, confidence and to be strong. We didn't lose [many games] but we draw so much, that's what's important for the table, but I think we can achieve the balance to be strong and get better in these matches."

    Jon Spurling: Thanks Arsenal for introducing me to a genuinely novel experience - I'm actually savouring the international break...

    Abid: Great time to be a Leicester fan. Playing better football than we did when we won the league! Everyone's talking about our attacking play but Soyuncu and Evans have formed a brilliant partnership at the back. Fully deserve to be in the top three!

    SMS Message: Is everyone going to focus on how poor Arsenal were? Leicester have been absolutely excellent all season and played sublimely today. For me this is a better Leicester team than the one who won the league a few years ago. from Rob in London

  6. 'Up there with the very, very top strikers'

    Leicester 2-0 Arsenal

    Leicester City

    Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has also been talking about Jamie Vardy: "It's firstly about giving him confidence. He is up there with the very, very top strikers in European football with what he brings to a team, his pressing.

    "We've allowed him to do essentially what he wants to do - he's so honest, he'd press he whole back four if he could.

    "How we play, being aggressive and playing quickly obviously suits him. But his finishing ability, how clinical he is, is absolutely phenomenal. That's a big testament to his concentration - when the opportunities come he's always ready."

  7. 'I'm playing the best that I ever have'

    Leicester 2-0 Arsenal

    And here is the man in question, Leicester striker Jamie Vardy: "I'm playing probably the best that I ever have but there's a long way to go.

    "I'm always willing to learn, there's new tactics with the gaffer and I'm always trying to give 100% and it's paying dividends for myself.

    "The creativity we've got in the side is going to benefit the team massively. We've got to take each game as they come. It's still early on in the season - it's a long slog.

    "There's a lot of momentum round the club and everyone's enjoying themselves. That enjoyment comes with winning."

  8. Vardy on top

    Leicester 2-0 Arsenal

    Tammy Abraham had moved level with Jamie Vardy at the top of goal charts, but Vardy has gone back out on his own with his 11th Premier League goal of the season.

    Tim: One name I rarely hear connected with Arsenal is Eddie Howe. Establishing Bournemouth as a Premier League team is nothing short of miraculous, AND his team play a lovely style of football....

    Luke: Arsenal's squad is easily the best of the rest after Liverpool and City. The only thing that holding it back is the manager.

  10. 'Very, very important three points'

    Leicester 2-0 Arsenal

    Leicester City

    Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers says: "This is a team that's very focused, very good defensively, and I felt we controlled large parts of the game.

    "A great victory for us against players that can really hurt you. We were able to manage that threat and play some great football.

    "The way it's been going for a period of time now, it's nice because the players know they have the qualities to win any game against any opposition.

    "You're playing against a top team with really good players, so you have to be patient but we showed real quality to break through. A very, very important three points."

  11. 'We're showing all the talent we have'

    Leicester 2-0 Arsenal

    Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel said: "Momentum is such an important thing in football. We've had a good start to the season.

    "It was a tough game, they've got quality all over the pitch. When we moved the ball quickly we gave them problems. For us it was really, really important that we stayed patient and moved the ball quickly and the first goal was basically the epitome of what were looking for.

    "I felt we were quite solid and I was quite confident with Vards up top and the boys behind him we'd do something.

    "For us it's been about enjoying doing what we're doing and basically coming out and showing all the talent we have which is huge really.

    "We've had success at this club before by taking it one game at a time, so who knows."

  12. England women lose late in front of record crowd

    England women 1-2 Germany women

    England v Germany

    England conceded a late goal to lose their friendly against Germany at Wembley - in front of a record crowd for a Lionesses game of 77,768.

    Klara Buhl struck with less than a minute left after the home side had fought back from Alexandra Popp's eighth-minute opener.

    Nikita Parris had a penalty saved in the first half, but Ellen White equalised just before half-time.

    England visibly tired to lose for the fifth time in six outings.

  13. And a few more stats...

    Leicester 2-0 Arsenal

    Scott Thomas: Arsenal goal difference - 1 Leicester goal difference +21 Sums up just how far Arsenal have descended under Emery.

    SMS Message: Why give Emery to the end of the season? The second half of last and first 3 months of this are showing the board what kind of manager he is. Scared, small club mentality tactics and terrible man management. By the end of this season he will have set us back too far to recover from quickly under a new manager. Give Freddy the job until Christmas and see how he does. He can't be any worse. from EZ
    SMS Message: Yes we need a change at the top. However some of the players also need to do the basics and stop being so wasteful with the ball. from Geoff, Kent

  17. How they stand

    Leicester fans are starting to dream again. This win takes them above Manchester City and Chelsea, although Pep Guardiola's side will regain second spot if they avoid defeat at Anfield against Liverpool tomorrow.

    Sheffield United fans will be absolutely delighted with this table too. Liverpool will go eight points clear at the top if they win tomorrow.


    Leicester 2-0 Arsenal

    Goals from Jamie Vardy and James Maddison give Leicester a deserved victory and take the Foxes up to second.
