LIVE
Post.
Thanks for joining me tonight. See you tomorrow for the European Super Cup.
93'
FT: Leicester 0-2 Arsenal. A fairly comfortable win for the Gunners who will face Lincoln or Liverpool next week.
91'
3 minutes added time.
91'
And that's it. Bellerín passes, Nketiah and Amartey go for it, the latter slips and Nketiah gets in front and taps it in.
90'
NKETIAH!!!!!!!!!!!
88'
Not long left for Leicester to get a goal.
87'
Arsenal sub: Saka off for Bellerín
81'
Almost the equaliser for Leicester. The free-kick comes in but Ayoze heads it wide. That should have been on target.
78'
Arsenal sub: Willock off for Ceballos.
77'
Willock has a deflected shot that goes wide.
76'
Leicester sub: Dewsbury-Hall off for Ayoze.
75'
Gray has a shot straight at Leno.
74'
Nearly 2-0. Nketiah chips Ward and Morgan gets back and heads it off the line.
71'
Leicester sub: Maddison off for Praet.
71'
Arsenal sub: Nelson off for Willian.
68'
Leicester haven't offered much recently.
63'
This would be a good win for the Gunners. Arteta has done well for them.
58'
Nelson has a shot from the edge of the box that goes over the bar.
57'
Pépé has a shot that is saved by Ward, he then hits the post with the rebound but it comes off Fuchs and into the net. 1-0 Arsenal.
57'
GOAL ARSENAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
55'
Fulham, Burnley, Brighton, and Stoke are all through.
51'
Gray has a shot from 25 yards that goes well wide. Very ambitious.
47'
Maddison has a shot from the edge of the box that goes well over.
46'
And we're back.
45'
HT: Leicester 0-0 Arsenal. Nothing to separate the side so far with all to play for in the second half.
45'
2 minutes added time.
43'
The next round comes fast. The winners will be in action again next week.
42'
Half-chance for Maddison as his header goes wide.
41'
Maddison has a free-kick from very far out that goes wide. Not sure if that was a cross or a shot.
39'
So unlucky from Maddison. He has a shot from the edge of the box that goes over Leno and hits the post. Again, what was Leno doing so far off his line?
37'
Been a bit quiet lately. I wonder if we will get a goal before half-time.
31'
Nelson has a very good shot from the middle of the box but he puts it well wide. That should have been on target.
29'
Nelson has a shot from just inside the box but it is simple for the keeper and he parries clear.
26'
Few goals to tell you about in the League Cup. Fulham are up 2-0 against Sheffield Wednesday, Burnley are beating Millwall 1-0, Stoke are beating Gillingham 1-0, Everton are up 10 against Fleetwood, Newcastle are beating Morecambe 3-0, and Chelsea are up 1-0 against Barnsley.
25'
Gray has a shot from just inside the box that goes wide.
20'
Saka puts a cross right across the face of goal but no one can get on the end of it. A decent chance for the Gunners.
17'
Kolasinac has a shot from just outside the box that goes wide.
17'
Arsenal are trying to get a goal. A young side they have tonight.
13'
Elneny is booked for a foul on Gray.
12'
Arsenal have been the better side in this match.
9'
Arsenal have only won the League Cup and the last time was in 1993. The hosts have won it twice since then in 1997 and 2000.
6'
A good chance for the hosts. Iheanacho is played through and tries to slot it past Leno, but the keeper does well to stop it with his foot.
3'
Nelson has a really good effort from far out that Ward gets a hand to and goes over the bar. That was going top bins if Ward hadn't touched it but what was he doing that far off his line?
2'
Iheanacho has the first shot of the match that goes well wide.
1'
And we're off.
Prev.
The winner of this match will play away to Lincoln or Liverpool in the next round.
Prev.
Arsenal have never won away to Leicester in the League Cup.
Prev.
Arsenal last beat Leicester in 2018. They last won away to them in 2015.
Prev.
Arsenal XI: Leno, Holding, Luiz, Kolasinac, Maitland-Niles, Elneny, Willock, Saka, Pepe, Nketiah, Nelson.
Prev.
Leicester XI: Ward, Amartey, Morgan, Fuchs, Thomas, Choudhury, Dewsbury-Hall, Albrighton, Maddison, Gray, Iheanacho.
