Morgan, Ozil and more: Twitter reacts as Arsenal thrash Leicester
Piers Morgan and Fabrice Muamba both tweet their thoughts as Arsenal thrash Leicester City 5-2 in the Premier League
Alexis Sanchez netted a hat-trick as Arsenal returned to winning ways in the Premier League with an emphatic 5-2 win over Leicester City on Saturday.
Jamie Vardy put the Foxes ahead in the 13th minute but Theo Walcott equalised when Leicester were caught on the break.
Sanchez then scored in the 33rd, 57th and 81st minute to put the result beyond doubt as Vardy pulled one back before substitute Olivier Giroud netted a fifth late on.
Sanchez, who scored 25 goals last season for the Gunners, had failed to net in eight games in all competitions before Saturday.
Arsenal’s emphatic win inevitably prompted plenty of activity on Twitter – and here are some of our favourite updates.
Piers Morgan is, for once, a very happy man after Arsenal’s impressive performance:
FT 2-5. Superb win, magnificent performance, Sanchez sensational. #afc

Former Gunner Fabrice Muamba has been equally impressed:
Arsenal have been outstanding this afternoon. They movement on the counter attack was just too much for Leicester's team to cope with them.
