Still no point away from home in 2018

Leicester City 3 Arsenal 1

Arsenal remain the only professional club in the country without an away point in 2018 after a 3-1 defeat at Leicester.

The Gunners faced an uphill battle after a calamitous 90 seconds midway through the first half saw first Kelechii Iheanacho fire the hosts in front after poor defending, then centre half Konstantinos Mavropanos - so assured against Manchester United and Burnley - sent off.

Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang equalised for Arsenal, who temporarily looked capable of a winner, but as the 10-men pushed forward gaps opened up at the back.

Jamie Vardy converted from the spot after Heinrikh Mkhitaryan fouled Demarai Gray in the box, then another previous Gunners target, Riyad Mahrez, confirmed Arsenal’s seventh successive away league defeat - their worst run for more than 50 years.

The Gunners go to Huddersfield Town on Sunday for Arsene Wenger’s final game in charge. Town will be in buoyant mood after a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge this evening confirmed their safety.
