Leicester beat Arsenal and moved second place in the Premier League table

Leicester City 2-0 Arsenal

Leicester City moved up to second in the Premier League as second-half goals from Jamie Vardy and James Maddison secured victory against Arsenal to put more pressure on Gunners boss Unai Emery.

The Foxes had looked set to be frustrated as they missed several chances in the first half while Wilfred Ndidi struck the bar early in the second period.

But Vardy finally broke the deadlock as he finished off an excellent team move, firing in his 11th goal of the season after Harvey Barnes and Youri Tielemans cut open the Arsenal defence.

Maddison then made sure there was no way back for Arsenal with a low strike through H├ęctor Bellerin’s legs and into the back of the net.

Victory means Leicester move up to second with 26 points from 12 games, five behind leaders Liverpool.

Arsenal, meanwhile, are now eight points off the top four and are without a win in the Premier League since beating Bournemouth 1-0 on 6 October.
