Leicester eager to spoil Wenger's farewell, says Morgan

A decision went against us and we are upset because we lost a game we shouldn't have lost.

Speaking on Thursday at his final press conference, Wenger urged his successor to maintain the club's values and to respect what he has built during his 22 years in north London. They had a hold on the opening 12 minutes, but Leicester's first interval of the threat made a dual sweep that showed terminal.

The dismissal of Mavropanos was the 118th red card of Wenger's reign as Arsenal manager across all competitions. "He was a bit surprised by the pace of the game at the start, because he had not completely recovered".

The early signs however, are bright. "Mkhitaryan plays the ball", Wenger was quoted as saying by the Guardian. We need to see more of him next season. The Gunners are the only team in England's top four divisions to not have picked up an away point in 2018.

"They had a good result in the last game and we know that when Arsenal are on form then they can be pretty devastating". In fact this season, the Gunners have surpassed their all time record goalscoring tally of the Invincibles' season already.


While the Champions League has benefited competitors from all over Europe, the Premier League has been able to generate more money and interest than its continental rivals, leaving some of Europe's biggest clubs keen to alter the situation.

Gifts and giveaways aside, it was a fitting farewell for both a fine man and a fine manager who, once this weekend is over, will hopefully return to our screens, whether in the manager's chair or the pundit's, with or without a tie. Against Leicester, Arsenal gave away a cheap penalty that could have been easily avoided.

Leicester: Eldin Jakupovic 7, Danny Simpson 7, Wes Morgan 7, Harry Maguire 7, Christian Fuchs 7, Riyad Mahrez 8, Adrien Silva 7, Hamza Choudhury 6, Fousseni Diabate 7, Kelechi Iheanacho 8, Jamie Vardy 8.

"I would like him to bring his own ideas, a different way to see the game". They look to have solid credentials here at 4/5 to beat West Brom, given the Eagles have scored 12 in their last five games.

And following Arsenal's 3-1 defeat to Leicester tonight, Wenger sent Ferguson a message of support.
