A frustrating draw at Emirates Stadium as Eddie Nketiah was sent off for Arsenal

Arsenal host Leicester City in a key battle in the race for a top four finish in the Premier League.

The Gunners are mounting an unlikely charge to qualify for next season’s Champions League after winning at Wolves, while Leicester have steadied themselves after a tricky start since the league resumed by easing past Crystal Palace.

Golden boot contenders Jamie Vardy and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang go head to head here also.

It’s a fair result from a gripping contest. Arsenal ran the first half, Leicester were the better side in the second. The result keeps Leicester in the top four - having played a game more than Manchester United and Wolves - while Arsenal’s Champions league ambitions look even more far-fetched now. Vardy, meanwhile, still leads Aubameyang by two goals at the top of the Premier League scoring charts.

-- Arsenal 1-1 Leicester City

-- Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang opened the scoring for Arsenal in the first half

-- Eddie Nketiah was sent off for Arsenal seconds after coming on as a sub

-- Jamie Vardy struck a late equaliser for the Foxes after tight VAR call

--Arsenal starting XI: Martinez, Mustafi, Luiz, Kolasinac, Bellerin, Ceballos (Torreira), Xhaka, Tierney, Saka (Willock), Lacazette (Nketiah), Aubameyang (Maitland-Niles)

-- Leicester City starting XI: Schmeichel, Bennett (Gray), Evans, Soyuncu, Justin, Ndidi (Praet), Tielemans, Albrighton (Fuchs), Perez, Iheanacho (Barnes), Vardy
