Leicester is no longer 3rd in the Premier League standings. The Foxes shared the points on Arsenal’s rain-sodden (1-1) lawn Tuesday night in game 34 of the England Championship. Youri Tielemans, at kickoff, Dennis Praet, present from the 82nd minute, and their partners have garnered only 6 points out of 15 since the resumption behind closed doors of the championship after the interruption imposed by the Covid crisis -19 in March. As at the same time Chelsea won twelve, the Blues of Frank Lampard found themselves on the podium with 60 points against 59 to the men of Brendan Rodgers.
The two top scorers in the competition have justified their reputation. Aubameyang scored his 20th goal with the Gunners in the 21st minute. Vardy rocked him a 22nd time in this 85th campaign, taking advantage of the number advantage Leicester has enjoyed since excluding Nketiah in the 75th.
Arsenal remains 7th in the standings with 50 points five lengths from Manchester United’s current last European qualifier.
