Vardy scores to stun Arsenal .

Jaimie Vardy scored after coming on as a substitute to hand Leicester a one nil win over Arsenal at the emirates stadium.

The former England international headed home to bring up a remarkable 11th Premier League goal against Arsenal to come close to Wayne Rooney, who has scored with 12, against the gunners.

Arsenal thought they had scored in the opening minutes when Alexandre Lacazette headed in from a corner, but Granit Xhaka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were both offside.

From that point Arsenal controlled the game for the most part, but, despite Kieran Tierney raiding with intent down the left, they struggled to bust open the organised visitors.

Arsenal had 11 shots in the first half but Schmeichel’s only save of note came from the one effort after the break, pushing out a decent volley from Hector Bellerin.

Aubameyang, who has now gone five Premier League games without a goal for the first time, was largely anonymous.

 In the other result on Sunday ,the last remaining unbeaten record of the Premier League season was ended as leaders Everton crashed to defeat against an impressive Southampton at St Mary’s.

James Ward-Prowse beat Jordan Pickford with a ferocious finish before Che Adams doubled the lead with the help of a deflection, Danny Ings involved in both goals.
