Leicester cement place in top four with convincing victory over Arsenal as Jamie Vardy torments Gunners once again

Leicester did their top four chances no harm whatsoever with a comfortable 2-0 win over Arsenal at the King Power Stadium.

Neither side could be separated at half time but the Foxes outclassed their opponents after the break.

The deadlock was broken through Jamie Vardy’s tidy finish following good work from Harvey Barnes and Youri Tielemans.

Vardy would then turn provider to set up James Maddison, who drilled in the second to give Brendan Rodgers’ men a deserved three points.

The result puts Leicester second in the Premier League – although Liverpool and Manchester City will play each other on Sunday – while Arsenal are a huge eight points off the Champions League spots.
