Verdy Fires The Foxes To First PL Win At Arsenal

Posted by

As Jamie Vardy ‘s late header secured a 1-0 smash-and-grab victory at the Emirates Stadium, Leicester claimed their first away Premier League victory at Arsenal. With 10 minutes left, Vardy headed in fellow replacement Cengiz Under ‘s cross as the Foxes beat the Gunners in their own back yard for the first time since 1973 with what was their only shot on goal.

Alexandre Lacazette had an early header called out for offside, and as the Gunners stumbled to a third defeat of the season, he and strike partner Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were guilty of squandering a host of first-half chances.

The win of Leicester was the 300th of the management career of Brendan Rodgers and raises the Foxes up to fourth in the Premier League, three points ahead of the Gunners, who remain 10th.
