Leicester City 3-0 Arsenal: Gunners boss Unai Emery ‘very proud’ of his players despite heavy defeat

Arsenal boss Unai Emery said he was ‘proud’ of his players despite suffering a heavy defeat at Leicester.

The Gunners’ hopes of reaching the top four suffered another blow with a 3-0 defeat at the King Power Stadium.

Arsenal couldn’t take advantage of Tottenham’s loss on Saturday

Speaking after the game, Emery said: “The players worked very well. I am very proud of them.
