By switching to a 3-4-1-2 shape and sitting deep, there was a clear gameplan here which was holding Leicester City at bay while posing a threat at the other end which would have encouraged Unai Emery.

Jamie Vardy’s decision to turn down a move to Arsenal in the summer of 2016 – just after Leicester won the League title – was a major blow to the Gunners’ plans at the time and he continues to haunt them now.

This wasn’t the capitulation some anticipated but it is undeniable the pressure is mounting on Emery to prove he is the right man to take Arsenal forward.

Xhaka is understandably a toxic figure after swearing at Arsenal fans and he makes too many mistakes to be considered a huge loss, but nevertheless it was easy to imagine his range of passing being a useful asset when trying to counter-attack like this.

However, they were undone by two superb Leicester moves which condemned them to a defeat which means they have now won just two of their last ten Premier League games.

The 32-year-old finished a wonderful team move on 68 minutes to score his ninth goal in nine League starts against Arsenal – a record which hurt Arsene Wenger and now heaps further scrutiny on his successor.

Granit Xhaka’s continuing absence as he deals with the fall-out from being stripped of the Arsenal captaincy is a real opportunity for Lucas Torreira to kickstart his career.
