    FT: Leicester 1-3 Arsenal!! All over in Leicester and Arsenal get a deserved victory. Tielemans puts the Foxes ahead, but goals before HT from D Luiz and Lacazette from the spot were vital. When Pepe got Arsenal's third early in the second half, that was that. Leicester tried, but did not have many clear chances to score. They lost Barnes and Evans to injury as well.

    Leicester get into the box, Under and Amartey have shots blocked, pinball ensues and the ref blows for full-time!!
  • 97'
    Shots: 7-11, on target: 3-4.
  • 96'
    Iheanacho!! What did you do? Albrighton's delivery finds Iheanacho at the back post and he blazes over.
  • 96'
    Iheanacho has an effort now which is blocked and then the Foxes win a corner.
  • 94'
    Under's ball in is easy for the goalie. Leno has had little to do, to be honest.
  • 94'
    Leicester want a penalty for handball from a free-kick, but the claims seem half-hearted.
  • 93'
    Thomas!! The former Atletico man goes for goal from distance and it's caught by Schmeichel.
  • 92'
    Auba gets into the box and then cuts back from the by-line into the hands of Schmeichel.
  • 91'
    Seven extra minutes.
  • 90'
    Tierney goes down under contact by Under. The ref gives a foul and he is caught in the head. Leicester claimed he went down too easily.

  • 87'

    Corners: 1-6.
  • 81'
    Thomas' effort deflects off Ndidi for a corner.
  • 81'
    You can't fault Leicester's effort, but they are lacking that cutting edge in the final third. I think they are missing Maddison.
  • 80'
    Pereira's ball in is poor and it runs through to Leno.
  • 78'
    Iheanacho fouls Thomas and it's a free-kick to the Gunners.
  • 74'

  • 66'
    Arsenal sub: Elneny is replaced by Thomas.
  • 65'
    Vardy goes down wanting a free-kick as he's through on goal, but Mari uses his strength. It would have been a red card had it been a foul. It was a good challenge though.
  • 63'
    The ball is played off Iheanacho in the Arsenal box and it's a goal kick.
  • 62'
    Leicester attack through Albrighton on this near side, he looks for Vardy in the middle and his ball is cut out.

    Still 1-3 and Arsenal are looking comfortable.
  • 56'
    Luiz has been looked at after heading a ball away from a corner.
  • 54'

Goaaaaaal!

  • 52'
    Pepe makes it 1-3!! He deserves that!! Pepe runs into the box, he passes to Odegaard who gives to Willian, the Brazilian cut back deflects off Tielemans into Pepe's path and he taps in from three yards out! Lovely counter.
  • 51'
    Leicester sub: Under on for Barnes.
  • 51'
    Mari gets his head to the corner, but nothing comes of it.
  • 50'
    The stretcher has come on here...

  • 46'
    Arsenal get us going again!
  • 45'
    HT: Leicester 1-2 Arsenal!!! Half-time at the KP Stadium and Arsenal have played well. Tielemans gave Leicester and early lead, but the Gunners picked up after that. VAR reversed an Arsenal penalty, but then David Luiz headed home a Willian free-kick in the 39th minute and Lacazette converted a penalty for handball by Ndidi right on HT. Back for more shortly!
  • 45'
    45+3; That's a huge blow for the Foxes just before the interval, but Arsenal have played well.
Penalty scored

  • 45'
    Penalty to Arsenal for handball by Ndidi.
  • 45'
    Three added minutes.
  • 45'
    For me, it's a clear penalty as his arm is up in the air and the ref is going to the screen.
  • 44'
    Huge shout for handball as Pepe's shot seems to strike Ndidi's hand, play continues and Arsenal get a corner.
  • 42'
    Arsenal sub: Odegaard is on for Smith-Rowe. It seems to be a leg injury.
  • 41'
    Smith-Rowe has picked up a knock here and is getting treatment.

  • 14'
    The referee has taken away the penalty and awarded a free-kick outside the box because of a foul by Ndidi outside!
  • 13'
    Don't think it's a pen, but may not be overturned.
  • 12'
    Penalty to Arsenal!!! Tielemans catches Pepe in the area and Paul Tierney has no hesitation in pointing to the spot. Not convinced it's a pen as I'm not convinced the Leicester man makes contact with him. The angles aren't the best though.
  • 12'
    Willian sends a cross into the box and Soyuncu heads out for a throw in.
  • 8'
    Smith-Rowe goes forward for the Gunners and he gets the corner off Tielemans.
