Jamie Vardy on the scoresheet as Leicester thump 10-man Arsenal 3-1

London: Leicester striker Jamie Vardy scored his sixth goal in as many Premier League games against Arsenal on Wednesday to help them to a 3-1 home win over the London club, who were reduced to 10 men in the first half. 

Vardy converted a 76th-minute penalty and Riyad Mahrez sealed Leicester`s win after Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had cancelled out Kelechi Iheanacho`s 14th-minute opener for the home side. 

Iheanacho fired the Foxes ahead with a sharp left-footed shot from the centre of the penalty area in the 14th minute and Arsenal defender Konstantinos Mavropanos was sent off straight after the restart for hauling down the forward. 

Aubameyang buried his own rebound into the top corner shortly after the break. Arsenal, however, could not hold on as Vardy converted a spot-kick after Demarai Gray was fouled and Mahrez sealed the win with a 90th-minute solo effort.
