Leicester vs Arsenal highlights – Unai Emery’s side suffered yet another blow in their hopes for a top four place with defeat at the King Power.
Leicester 3-0 Arsenal
‣ 1-0: Youri Tielemans (59’)
‣ 2-0: Jamie Vardy (86’)
‣ 3-0: Jamie Vardy (90’)
Jamie Vardy scored twice late on to add to Youri Tielemans’ header at the hour mark to dent Arsenal’s hopes of a Champions League spot with a dominant victory on Sunday.
Emery’s side were without Ainsley Maitland-Niles from the 28th minute after he was sent off for two yellow cards; a soft foul on Ben Chilwell and later cynically taking out Maddison.
James Maddison set up Tielemans for the home side to take the lead in the second-half, before Vardy struck late on with a header and a simple tap-in from close-range to complete a 3-0 victory.
It was the Gunners’ third consecutive Premier League defeat and their fourth in their last five games, leaving them a point behind fourth-placed Chelsea and just two ahead of Manchester United, who face the Blues at Old Trafford later today.
Leicester: Schmeichel, Ricardo, Evans, Maguire, Chilwell, Ndidi, Tielemans, Choudhury, Albrighton, Maddison, Vardy.
Arsenal: Leno, Maitland-Niles, Mustafi, Papastathopoulos, Kolasinac, Mkhitaryan, Torreira, Xhaka, Iwobi, Aubameyang, Lacazette.
