Vardy on the spot as Arsenal surfers their third defeat in the Premier League

Leicester secured a first away league win at Arsenal in 47 years as Jamie Vardy once again proved to be the scourge of the Gunners.

Vardy was not fit enough to start on his return from a calf injury, but came on to head home an 81st minute winner – his 11th Premier League goal against the Gunners – and steal a 1-0 victory as Brendan Rodgers’ plan worked to perfection.

Mikel Arteta thought his side had taken the lead as early as the third minute as Alexandre Lacazette headed home a Dani Ceballos corner at the front post.

An offside flag saw the effort ruled out, however, with Granit Xhaka deemed to have been interfering with play as he stood in front of Kasper Schmeichel.
