Sanchez, Ozil and more: Twitter reacts as Arsenal beat Leicester

Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil both tweet their thoughts as Arsenal beat Leicester City 2-1 at The Emirates

Arsenal moved back into the top four of the Premier League thanks to a nervy 2-1 win over Leicester City at Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night.

The Gunners took the lead in the 27th minute when Laurent Koscielny poked home from a corner.

And Theo Walcott doubled his side’s advantage in the 41st minute when he fired home from 10 yards.

City rallied after the break and Andrej Kramaric netted just after the hour-mark to set up a tense finale in north London.

But Arsenal held on to move back into fourth place in the table.

Tuesday’s game prompted plenty of activity on Twitter – and here are our favourite updates, in chronological order.

Alexis Sanchez (@Alexis_Sanchez) is looking forward to the game:

Gunners goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez (@emimartinezz1) issues a pre-match rallying cry: “Massive game for us tonight come on gunners #3pointsplz #AFC”

Celebrity Arsenal fan Piers Morgan @piersmorgan is delighted to see Walcott back in good form: “Theo looking sharper & sharper. Great to have him back. #afc @theowalcott @Arsenal.”

After the final whistle, Mesut Özil (@MesutOzil1088) praises the Gunners for getting the job done: “Quite an unnecessary thrill after the 2:0 lead. But in the end we got the three points – that’s all that counts! #YaGunnersYa #AFCvLCFC”

Sanchez (@Alexis_Sanchez), who picked up a knee injury during the game, tweeted afterwards: “Sometimes the love for the game and anxiety to be on a football pitch works against you.”

And that just leaves Hector Bellerin (@HectorBellerin) to have the final say: “Good to get back to winning ways. Happy for @theowalcott getting on the score sheet! #COYG”
