Although Danny Welbeck levelled on the stroke of halftime, Vardy restored Leicester's lead after the break.

Arsenal then had a penalty shout as Kolasanic's shot hit Onyine Ndidi's raised arm, but Mike Dean adjudged the Leicester man was too close to be able to react.

Giroud scored with five minutes left on the clock to ensure Arsenal shrug off Craig Shakespeare's bold Leicester side. First Aaron Ramsey smashed home an equaliser in the 83rd minute, before Giroud powered a header into the top corner a couple of minutes later to complete an incredible fightback.
