Arsenal humiliated, Leicester in charge


In addition to the draw between City and Liverpool, the eighth day of the Premier League is marked by the taking of control of Leicester in the standings, the success of Tottenham and the slap received by Arsenal.

Leicester in power

Champion of England in 2016 and long spoiler in the race for the Champions League last season, Leicester will spend the international truce in November in the shoes of the leader of the Premier League.

The Foxes defeated Wolverhampton with a penalty converted by Jamie Vardy (1-0, 15th).

The top scorer of last season (23 goals) had never hooked the Wolves to his hunting roster and he has now scored against the 19 other top teams since the start of his career.

He could even have added a second, also from the penalty spot - the 8th granted to Leicester in 8 days - but his too axial strike was repelled by the legs of Rui Patricio, exercise specialist.

Tottenham, 33 minutes of happiness

Before Leicester, Spurs had occupied for 33 minutes, and for the first time since August 2014 the first place in the standings, between the late goal of the head of Harry Kane (1-0, 88) and the Vardy's penalty.

They are now 2nd, one point behind Leicester, but ahead of Liverpool on goal difference.

José Mourinho had decided to align his star attacking trio Son Heung-min, Harry Kane and Gareth Bale, starting in the league for the first time since his return on loan.

But after a very laborious first period - 1 shot, 0 on target - the Londoners, who were already playing their 15th game of the season there, owed their salvation to their 27-year-old center forward who scored his 150th Premier League goal.

Kane is 13 goals and 10 assists in 14 appearances this season.

Mikel Arteta's team fell back into its defensive failures, conceding a goal against its camp from Bukayo Saka (25th) and a brace from Ollie Watkins (72nd, 75th).

With 4 wins and 4 losses, the Gunners are 11th while the Birmingham club are 6th with 15 units, only three lengths from Leicester, while they have one game less.
