Jamie Vardy, James Maddison score in key Premier League win





Football

Jamie Vardy scored his 11th goal of the season to help Leicester back up to second with a 2-0 win over Arsenal at the King Power.


The forward scored his ninth goal in nine games against the Gunners to inspire the Foxes to a 2-0 win and into second in the Premier League.


Vardy, the top flight's 11-goal leading scorer, also set up James Maddison's clincher as Emery's side slumped to a limp defeat at the King Power Stadium.


Alexandre Lacazette wasted Arsenal's best chance and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had a goal disallowed but the visitors were poor.


The Gunners, winless in the Premier League for over a month, slipped eight points behind the top four with Emery's position under increasing scrutiny.


Leicester now sit five points behind leaders Liverpool - who host Manchester City on Sunday - after a deserved fifth straight win.
