Vardy scores as Leicester win at Arsenal
Jamie Vardy came off the bench to give Leicester their first win away at Arsenal since 1973. Vardy headed home after he was found by fellow substitute Cengiz Under in the 80th minute.
The 33-year-old scored his 11th league goal against Arsenal in 12 appearances and his fifth at the Emirates – more than any other visiting player. Vardy has scored six goals from just nine shots this season. In comparison, Mohamed Salah has had 29 shots.
Leicester are now in fourth, one point off the top after four wins from six games. They have won their opening three away matches for the first time, including a 5-2 away win at Man City.

The Gunners had a goal disallowed in the first half but did not create many opportunities as they lost at home in the league for the first time in 2020.
Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang has gone five Premier League games without scoring for the first time. Mikel Arteta’s side have scored just eight in six league games this season – they have only scored fewer at this stage in one previous Premier league campaign.
