Gabriel Paulista and Alexis Sanchez were among the Arsenal players to take to social media to celebrate Sunday’s dramatic 2-1 win over 10-man Leicester City at The Emirates.

Danny Welbeck came off the bench to net a dramatic last-gasp winner as Arsenal closed the gap to leaders Leicester down to two points and keep their title charge on track.

The Foxes took the lead in north London when Jamie Vardy scored from the penalty spot on the stroke of half-time after being brought down by Nacho Monreal in the box.

However, Leicester were reduced to 10 men when Danny Simpson was shown a second yellow card in the 54th minute.

Arsenal drew level when substitute Theo Walcott finished from close range, and Welbeck netted the winner when his glancing header from Mesut Ozil’s free-kick crept past Kasper Schmeichel deep into stoppage time.
