Arsenal’s stars celebrated their dramatic 2-1 comeback win over Leicester City in the Emirates Stadium dressing room after Sunday’s thrilling clash.

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

Leicester were reduced to 10 men when Danny Simpson was shown a second yellow card in the 54th minute after holding back Olivier Giroud.

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

Ozil, who played the full 90 minutes, was quick to share the picture above on his personal Instagram account after the game, writing: “Best. team. #AFCvLCFC #Arsenal #YaGunnersYa #BeTheDifference #bigpoints”
