Alexandre Lacazette gave Arsenal the lead soon after kick-off when he headed home a close-range header to net his first Premier League goal.

However, Shinji Okazaki levelled moments later when a close-range header, before Jamie Vardy struck to put the visitors ahead.

Danny Welbeck’s strike on the stroke of half-time allowed the Gunners to go in level at the break.
