Leicester 2-5 Arsenal Highlights
Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez rediscovered his goalscoring touch as his hat-trick ended Leicester’s unbeaten start to the season.
Jamie Vardy had put the Foxes ahead with a superb finish from a tight angle after a clinical counter attack.
Theo Walcott equalised when Leicester were themselves caught on the break.
Sanchez then took control of the contest with his treble – the pick his third from long range – as Vardy and Olivier Giroud netted late on.
Sanchez, who scored 25 goals last season for the Gunners, had failed to find the net in eight games across all competitions before this contest.
The result means Leicester are now without a win against Arsenal in 18 league games, stretching back to November 1994.
