Soccer – Emery looking up after Foxes win

Unai Emery watched his Arsenal side come from behind to defeat Leicester 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium on Monday and then set his sights on the teams at the top of the Premier League. The Gunners' bid to record a 10th successive win in all competitions was under threat when Hector Bellerin's own goal put the Foxes in front on 31 minutes of the game. However, the hosts responded well with the inspirational Mesut Ozil equalising before the break and then played a huge part in substitute Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's match-winning double in the second half. The victory moves Arsenal, who are 28/1 with bet365 to win the Premier League, level on points with third-placed Chelsea and just two behind Manchester City and Liverpool. Emery said: "It was very important for us to beat Leicester because they’re not far behind us. Now we've created a lot of distance with the teams behind us. "Now in front we are looking at teams like Liverpool, like Manchester City, like Chelsea, but it’s not important to think about the end."
