Jamie Vardy struck a late equaliser as Leicester City secured a 1-1 draw at Emirates Stadium to dent 10-man Arsenal’s European hopes.

The Foxes forward tucked home his 22nd Premier League goal of the campaign six minutes from time after more VAR drama saw Gunners substitute Eddie Nketiah sent off.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had put the hosts in front with a fine first-half opener to notch his 20th league goal and Leicester were grateful to Kasper Schmeichel for keeping the score down heading into the break.
