Arsène Wenger hails his strikeforce after Arsenal's win at the King Power Stadium.



Arsenal boss Arsène Wenger praised their 5-2 win over the Foxes on Saturday.

England international Theo Walcott cancelled out Jamie Vardy's opener before Alexis Sanchez scored a hat-trick. Vardy scored another for the homeside and Olivier Giroud added a fifth for the Gunners in injury time.

However, Wenger was pleased to see his forwards get into go scoring form.

“Certainly it was the most convincing [display of the season] going forward, yes,” he told Arsenal Player, as Arsenal.com quoted.


“It was a tricky game because Leicester hadn’t lost, and I was a bit concerned because we did not want to lose ground on the other teams - so it was a big win for us.

“I am pleased with [the strikers’] games. Giroud is sharp in training and in the matches as well, I think he played well at Tottenham.

“Walcott is improving game after game, he holds the ball better up front, his movement is great and both of them scored, which is what you want.

“I believe [Alexis] wasn’t back to his best after the Copa America, it took him a while to get his competitive edge and now he has played well again and he is back to his level.”
