Ndidi, Iheanacho Fail To Shine As Leicester City Lost 3-1 Against Arsenal


Super Eagles duo of Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho played all 90 minutes as Leicester City lost 3-1 at home to Arsenal on Sunday.

The Foxes took the lead after just six minutes when some slack defending from Arsenal allowed Youri Tielemens to drive into the penalty box and find the far corner of the net with a low finish past Bernd Leno.

Arsenal looked to have been given a way back into the game when Nicolas Pepe was fouled in the box, but VAR was used to adjudge that the contact had in fact occurred outside the area with a freekick awarded instead.

However, the visitors drew level after 39 minutes when David Luiz pulled away from his marker at a freekick to glance home a header from a Willian delivery. Alexandre Lacazette completed the turnaround from the spot when VAR was used to spot a handball by Wilfred Ndidi just before the break.

Harvey Barnes was forced off through injury not long into the second half and Arsenal rubbed salt into the wounds moments later, scoring a third through Pepe after good work by Martin Odegaard and Willian.
