Super Eagles duo of Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi were in action for the Foxes while Ademola Lookman was an unused substitute.

The deserved victory for Arsenal lifted them back into fourth place in the table, one point above Manchester United, who defeated fellow top-four contenders Tottenham on Saturday.

Thomas Partey opened the scoring for the Gunners in the 11th minute kf the gane before Alexander Lacazette converted a penalty early in the second half to seal victory.
