Leicester City ends Arsenal Unbeaten Home Wins with a late header from Jamie Vardy whose score settled a 0-1 win over the Gunnars.
Arsenal looked to be the favorite side but with the likes of Willian and Ceballos injured,Arteta had just lacazeth and Aubameyang to capitalize his attack. However a late substitute jamie Vardy scored the opening goal which halted the run for Arsenal.
Mikel Arteta’s side had won their previous four home league games and were unbeaten in 11 on their own patch this calendar year but that run was ended by Vardy.

Vardy’s 11th goal in 12 league games against Arsenal also ended Leicester’s 28-game wait for an away win against Arsenal in all competitions as they moved up to fourth.
