Arsenal turned in yet another under-par performance as Leicester won 2-0 at the King Power Stadium.
The Gunners couldn’t find their groove under the pouring rain in Leicestershire as the Foxes impressed yet again under Brendan Rodgers.
Arsenal did think they had scored the game’s opener in the second half after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang tucked away a tight angle cross, however VAR deemed that angle to be too tight, with the forward marginally offside.
Leicester didn’t wait for Arsenal to find another opportunity though, with Jamie Vardy finishing off an excellently worked team goal that was reminiscent of the Gunners of old.
James Maddison compounded Arsenal fans’ misery not long afterward, driving a low shot through Hector Bellerin’s legs into the corner past Bernd Leno.
Arsenal are now winless in four in the Premier League, and fans didn’t hesitate to share their feelings following the game on social media.

Read Arsenal Verdict
There doesn’t seem to be any way back for Unai Emery at this point. Arsenal are bereft of confidence, void of ideas and the playing squad simply isn’t good enough.
While the players are not blameless, the buck ultimately falls to Emery, and he hasn’t done enough to show the fans that he is the man to lead the club through this rough patch.
Arsenal’s fan base is (largely) against him, which will be difficult to win back, and the club would be best suited in letting him go.
