Wilshere misses out as his bird is set to give birth.

Mavropanos starts for the third consecutive league game and Holding comes in for just his 8th league start of the season, Maitland-Niles and Kolasinac take up the full back roles.

Lacazette presumably rested along with Bellerin.

Why rest players? Lacazette needs to improve



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

True, though pulled off early in one of them?

Not that I'm against Holding and Mavropanos being given a chance in this nothing game, but I'm disappointed Chambers has disappeared having done so well in the last three games.

Hope Osei-Tutu gets off the bench. Given our lack of other right backs at the moment he could have a genuine chance of making it here.

Bellerin had been making very school boy level errors. A new manager other than arteta will sort him out

Patient build up involving Mkhitaryan, Ramsey and Maitland-Niles. M-N finds Iwobi and he has a shot saved for a corner.

Kolasinac plays a great low ball across the six yard box but nobody had gambled.

1-0 Iheanacho.

After a number of pathetic attempts at dealing with a Leicester corner, Iheanacho makes us pay.

This is a good start 1-0 down and 10 men

Hope he learns from this. This is what I've seen from him in under 21s. I never found his conc levels to be at the point required in the premier league. Hopefully he will learn. We will see him in pre season next season hopefully.

Half time 1-0 to Leicester.

We started brightly but conceded a really@#$%&goal after failing to deal with a corner multiple times. We then went down to 10 men after Mavropanos was sent off. Iwobi, Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang have had good chances for us, but Leicester have had some good opportunities as well.

Really competitive, end-to-end game. Shame we are behind in more ways than one.

Quality passing and moving play at the start of the half sees Kolasinac hitting the post from a tight angle.

Leicester immediately counter. Vardy is slipped through but is flagged offside as he rounds Cech.

Get in.

Xhaka finds Maitland-Niles with a ball over the top. Ainsley does well to get past his man and drive into the penalty area. He plays it to Aubameyang, who's initial effort is saved, but he smashes in the rebound.

1-1.

Penalty Leicester.

Clumsy from Mkhitaryan.

Vardy scores.
