Leonardo Ulloa’s second Premier League goal of the season earned Leicester City a 1-1 draw against Arsenal on Sunday.
Leicester’s record signing headed home in the 22nd minute to immediately cancel out Alexis Sanchez’s first league goal for Arsenal since joining from Barcelona.
Ulloa’s intervention proved enough to earn a valuable point as the visitors failed to find a winner in an entertaining encounter at the King Power Stadium.
Arsenal headed into the game desperate to cap a good week, having qualified for the UEFA Champions League group phase for the 17th successive season on Wednesday.
Yet an inspired Ulloa proved a handful and, with Leicester also defending doggedly, Arsene Wenger’s men had to settle for a share of the spoils.
Arsenal have now collected a win and two draws from the opening three league fixtures of 2014-15, with Leicester taking two points from the same number of games.
The home side began confidently, Ritchie De Laet sending in a teasing cross for Ulloa – whose attempt to control the ball flew straight to Wojciech Szczesny.
