Jamie Vardy 8; Eddie Nketiah sent off, David Luiz 7 - Arsenal v Leicester City ratings

Vardy's late strike cancels out Aubameyang's first-half effort

Jamie Vardy salvaged what could prove to be a crucial point for Leicester City in their quest to claim a place in next season's Champions League in a 1-1 draw at Arsenal on Tuesday dominated by VAR reviews.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's strike gave the Gunners a well-deserved first half lead, but Arsenal were reduced to 10 men for the final 15 minutes when substitute Eddie Nketiah was shown a straight red card after a lengthy VAR review.

Leicester made the most of the man advantage as Vardy slotted home from Demarai Gray's cross, but also had a nervous wait before the goal was awarded as VAR checked for offside.
