A late Robert Huth own goal kept Arsenal’s top-four hopes alive with a 1-0 victory over Leicester at the Emirates on Wednesday night.
Despite having nearly 70 per cent possession, Arsenal failed to break down the Foxes back line until the 86th minute, when Nacho Monreal’s wayward effort hit the unfortunate Huth and deflected past Kasper Schmeichel.
Leicester twice went close through Riyad Mahrez in the first half, while Alexis Sanchez crashed a long-range effort off the crossbar on the stroke of half-time.
So boss, that throw-in incident at the end…

The result means Arsenal are now four points off fourth-place Man City and six off third-place Liverpool, though the Gunners have two games in hand on Jurgen Klopp’s side.
