Leicester haven’t beaten Arsenal in the Premier League since 1994 but you wouldn’t have known it from this game. Here are the THREE Things We Learned From Arsenal’s Draw With Leicester:
Wenger may feel that signing another striker in light of Giroud’s injury would be rash but the plain fact is Arsenal are not going to win the league with Yaya Sanogo up front. The striker spurned several good one-on-one chances and his frustration was evident before his substation put him out of his misery.
Sanogo is like that guy you call when you only have 9 people available for a 5-a-side.

If Yaya Sanogo is your back-up striker, you're not winning the Premier League. It really appears that simple, Arsene.

If Sanogo is the answer, Arsene is asking the wrong question.

In Leicester’s three games so far they have faced Everton, Chelsea and Arsenal. Clubs rarely face such difficult starts and yet the Foxes have come out with credit from all three games. Ulloa consistently threatened up front and they’ve a strong right side in Mahrez and De Laet. It’s early days but the signs are promising for Leicester.
They'll be hard to break down + to beat, and in David Nugent + Leonardo Ulloa, they have one of the great unlikely strike pairs in the game.

Well played Leicester. Play like that and you will have every chance of staying up. Enormous work ethic.

Chelsea signed Remy on the same day that Sanogo proved he’s not good enough to lead Arsenal’s forward line. With none of Sanchez, Podolski, Walcott or Campbell capable of playing as No. 9, it’s hard not to feel that Wenger has again missed a trick.
Remy looks at steal at 8m for Chelsea surprised arsenal didn't get him earlier!
