The Foxes twice took the lead thanks to Jamie Vardy’s double, while Shinji Okazaki was earlier on the scoresheet to cancel out Alexandre Lacazette’s second-minute opener.

But Arsene Wenger introduced Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud late on in the second period and both Gunners stars were on target in London.

“It was a pulsating game of football,” Taggart reflected to LCFC Radio at full-time.

Vardy was on target twice at Emirates Stadium.

“Right from the start, both teams went for it and it was heartbreaking for the boys in blue you have to say.

“I feel for them. I feel for Craig Shakespeare and Jamie Vardy because he was a two-goal hero. It was a fantastic game of football but it was a really disappointing in the end.

“Credit to Arsenal and Arsene Wenger because he made two really good substitutions that came on. He changed his formation in the end to a back four.

James starts his first Foxes game for 27 months.

“He brought the two substitutes on – Ramsey and Giroud – and in the end, they did the trick. You’ve got to hold your hands up at times and say well played to Arsenal.”
