Arsenal Share Points as Youngster Sees Red

Our winning streak ended when we faced Leicester City on Tuesday night. It was not the worst result we could have gotten from the encounter but we would have been better off with victory. 

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang said the opening prayer after well-crafted architectural work from Bukayo Saka and Dani Ceballos. The latter had picked up Saka on the run with a pass which the youngster sent in the path of Auba and into the net it went to give us a 21st-minute lead. 

Kaspar Schmeichel prevented us from getting more reward for our outstanding first half performance with his well calculated saves. He made saves for attempts from Kieran Tierney, Saka and Hector Bellerin. He also didn't let Alexandre Lacazzette's go through on two occasions. 

Our class shook the Leicester defence, one of the best in the Premier League, real big. Unfortunately, it didn't add to our tally. 

We looked to have gotten the breakthrough when Lacazette scored before it was ruled offside. David Luiz had earlier seen his free-kick saved. 

Our opponents started to get some balls and came top when Eddie Nketiah's reckless challenge on James Justin earned him a straight red card. 

It was after that we conceded a goal and as he normally does when he plays against us, Vardy grabbed an equaliser for his side. VAR checks cleared the offside doubt. 

We head next to White Hart Lane for the our first men's North London derby at their new home on Sunday.
