Superb goals from Jamie Vardy and James Maddison lifted Leicester City into second as Brendan Rodgers’ side made light work of Arsenal.
Leicester City moved into second in the Premier League as goals from Jamie Vardy and James Maddison downed Arsenal 2-0 to cap a dominant display at the King Power Stadium.
Heading into Saturday’s encounter in search of a fourth successive league win, Leicester failed to capitalise on some basic errors from Arsenal prior to Vardy’s well-worked 68th-minute strike – his 11th of the season.
Wilfred Ndidi had previously gone the closest to breaking the deadlock, hitting the crossbar early in the second half, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had a goal rightly ruled out for offside at the other end.
Maddison settled the game with a fantastic second, making sure Brendan Rodgers’ side continued their sparkling form and, temporarily at least, slot in behind former employers Liverpool in the table.
