EPL: Late Leicester goal stuns Arsenal after Southampton end Everton’s unbeaten run

Leicester City defeated Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium after a late Jamie Vardy goal sealed a 1-0 victory for the Foxes in the Premier League on Sunday.

Both sides played goalless for most part of the game before Vardy, who came in as a 60th-minute substitute, broke the deadlock in the 80th minute.

Super Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho, who bagged a goal and two assists in Leicester Europa League opener last Thursday, was an unused substitute in the game.

Arsenal through Alexander Lacazette, had an early goal ruled out for offside. But despite dominating possession and having 12 shots on goal, the Gunners lost a game at home to Leicester for the first time since 1973.
