Arsene Wenger spoke of his delight after Arsenal put worries over their lack of goals aside with a 5-2 victory over Leicester City.

A hat-trick from Alexis Sanchez along with goals from Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud capped an impressive performance for Arsenal against previously unbeaten Leicester at the King Power Stadium.

The Gunners had scored five goals in their previous six league games, and with the situation over their struggling strikers garnering criticism, this was a performance that Wenger felt was a long time coming.

“We created many chances and I felt a game like this was coming,” the Frenchman told BBC Sport. “I think we always looked dangerous.

“We managed to come back from 2-1 and after that I feel we dominated the game.

“Alexis was waiting for a goal and he’s not used to not scoring for so long so it was important for him to score.”

The Gunners had to come from behind for their victory after Jamie Vardy had opened the scoring for the Foxes, and Wenger was quick to praise Leicester for their part.

“I want us to score goals but I must say Leicester played well and to play a good football game there needs to be two teams,” he told Arsenal’s official website. “They had the stronger start, they pushed us on our back foot from the start when they scored the first goal and I must say I was concerned after that as I thought they were close to scoring a second one and it would have made it difficult.

“We found the resources to equalise and after that our technical quality and the pace of our strikers gave them problems and we managed to make it 2-1 before half-time. In the second half we controlled the game and looked always like we could add another one.”
