Arsenal recorded their first away win against a top three Premier League team forsix years when they beat Leicester 3-1 on Sunday.

Nicolas Pepe then rounded off the scoring in the second half as the visitors recorded their second win in six Premier League matches.

It is the first time in 15 attempts that the north London side have won away at a team that started the game in the top three of the English top-flight.

The last time they did so was in January 2015 when they beat Manchester City 2-0, when Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla scored to seal the three points for Arsene Wenger's team.

Willian and David Luiz may have combined for a Gunners goal for the first time, but the pair have linked up to find the net in the Premier League before when they were at Chelsea.

They are just the second duo to have scored Premier League goals for Arsenal and another team, following in the footsteps of John Hartson and Ian Wright, who did so at West Ham.

Meanwhile, Pepe kept up his good form with his fifth goal in 18 matches in the league. He has now matched the tally he recorded in 31 appearances last season.

Arsenal have another away game next Saturday when they take on Burnley, followed by the first leg of their Europa League last-16 tie against Olympiacos. Three days later they will host north London rivals Tottenham.
