Leicester City 3 Arsenal 0: 10-man Gunners slip to third straight defeat after Vardy double
Ten-man Arsenal slipped to a third consecutive Premier League loss as Jamie Vardy's late brace sealed Leicester City's a 3-0 win at the King Power Stadium.
Defeats to Crystal Palace and Wolves in the past week had already damaged the Gunners' hopes of securing a top-four spot but their latest reverse against the Foxes now means they could end the day four points shy of the Champions League qualification places, if Chelsea overcome Manchester United.
Arsenal were on the backfoot from the outset and their cause was made even more challenging when Ainsley Maitland-Niles received a second yellow card in the 36th minute for a late challenge on James Maddison.
The Leicester midfielder was the provider when Youri Tielemans opened the scoring with powerful header shortly before the hour, while Vardy struck in the 86th minute and stoppage time.
