'I accept all the criticism, they stuck to the gameplan' - Emery defends Arsenal stars after defeat at Leicester

Unai Emery praised his Arsenal players for "sticking to the gameplan" after a 2-0 defeat at Leicester on Saturday, insisting any criticism for the team's performance should be directed at him.

The Foxes moved back into third in the Premier League standings thanks to second-half goals from Jamie Vardy and James Maddison, extending their winning run to four matches in the process.

The Gunners, meanwhile, slipped to sixth, with nine points now separating them and fourth-place Chelsea in the race for the final Champions League spot.
