Leicester ripped ten-man Arsenal apart at the King Power Stadium yesterday, recording a fully deserved 3-0 victory.
Loanee Youri Tielemans opened the scoring before livewire Jamie Vardy netted a double to condemn the Gunners to yet another defeat away from home.
The game was already even before Ainsley Maitland-Niles got himself sent off for two bookable offences, which was perhaps a debatable call from Michael Oliver.
But the Foxes pulled away in that second period to wrack up another eye-catching result under Brendan Rodgers, and while Vardy may grab the headlines, Leicester fans were keen to pay tribute to goalkeeper and captain Kasper Schmeichel.
The man Spotrac claim earns £130,000 a week kept a clean sheet but topped it off with a sumptuous assist for Vardy’s first goal, a raking long pass that cut Arsenal open.
The supporters couldn’t believe it and took to Twitter to hail the Dane for the quality of his contribution at both ends – we’ve put together the best of the reaction…
That assist was ridiculous. Great vision!
