Morgan tips Leicester to shake off Arsenal loss

Wes Morgan is backing Premier League leaders Leicester to bounce back from their “disappointing” last-minute defeat to Arsenal on Sunday.

Danny Welbeck’s header in the final seconds of the match at the Emirates handed Arsenal a 2-1 win and a title lifeline, while it was only the Foxes’ third league defeat of the season.

Leicester’s lead at the top of the Premier League table is down to two points, with Tottenham and Arsenal only separated by goal difference.

However, Morgan is convinced Leicester will get their title bid back on track.

“It’s a disappointing result. To concede with the last kick of the game like that and to come away with nothing is hard to take,” the captain told the club’s website.

“We’re the type of team to fight for each other, have each other’s backs and do what’s necessary to try to help each other out.

“We’ll dust ourselves off and bounce back against Norwich in our next game.”

Leicester’s next game is on February 27 against Norwich and boss Claudio Ranieri has decided to give the players a week off to recover.

“We’ll have a little rest and take our minds off the game,” Morgan added.

“It’s been a tough last three games so we’ll have some time off from football, and come back with a fresh mind raring to go. We’ll be back on it.”
