Video: Gabriel punished for defensive decision as Jamie Vardy scores against Arsenal for Leicester

Posted by

In the 79th minute of Arsenal’s clash against Leicester, Youri Tielemans played in Cengiz Under with a beautiful pass that split the Gunners’ defence.

Under latched onto the ball before floating it into the middle of the box, where Jamie Vardy was on hand to head the ball into the back of the net with a diving effort.

Tielemans’ pass spelled danger for the Gunners, with Gabriel Magalhaes moving away from marking Vardy to try and close down Under.

The ace’s decision was made in an effort to cover for the slow Granit Xhaka, who couldn’t get across to Vardy in time – leaving Mikel Arteta’s side to go behind.

Vardy has come off the bench to score and cause misery for Arsenal in his fourth straight game against the Gunners.

  1. That goal wasn’t Gabriel’s fault at all, it was Mustafi who is at fault. He was in the middle of the field when he should have been marking Vardy as the right sided centre back but he was a long way out of position. Mustafi is clueless at defending and should have left the club this summer, he is just not good enough for the premier league. I would have rather seen Saliba come on instead of Mustafi to see what he can bring to the team and get a chance in defence. It was also Ceballos’s worst game for us so far, he was ineffective and appears to be playing in the shadow of Partey already. We should have won that game tonight by at least 2 goals but we lacked creativity in attack and fell to a sucker punch goal from Vardy that Mustafi should have prevented.

  2. Beneath at all we are lack of creativity up front .. we just keep the possesion .. we are now a very boring club

  3. Scoring against arsenal is not problem it happens, but my concerned is this stupidity of arsenal board decision of frozen mesut ozil, since u missed on auaor, even if ozil was at faults they suppose to settle it in other way rather than punish him in that way, now that we have strong defensive midfielder no attacking midfielder and we have Ozil in that team is embarrassing.
