Aaron Ramsdale made a superb save from a James Maddison free-kick to keep Arsenal in a 2-0 lead at Leicester City amidst his incredible run of form – with Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers only looking on in disbelief as his side failed to gain a way back into the game.

Arsenal raced into a 2-0 lead with goals from Gabriel Magalhaes and Emile Smith-Rowe putting Leicester to the sword within the space of 20 minutes at the King Power Stadium.

With Arsenal unbeaten since the end of August, their youthful side took control of the game and are one step closer to making it nine games without defeat.

Leicester rarely threatened to half the deficit with a poor performance infront of a disappointed capacity crowd.

They were, however, afforded a chance to get back into the game with a free-kick on the edge of the box in the dying embers of the first half.

And with the former Norwich midfielder firing the ball towards the top corner, he wheeled away to celebrate – only for him and boss Rodgers to look on in horror as Ramsdale produced a stunning save to preserve the Gunners two-goal advantage.

Ramsdale leapt high and wide to his left-hand side to push the ball onto the crossbar and out, before thwarting Jonny Evans’ follow-up for Thomas Partey to clear.

Many in the ground thought either of the duo had scored to set up an exciting second half, including Rodgers.

But the Northern Irishman could only look on in anguish at the scenes than unfolded infront of him.

Ramsdale has been an inspired figure since he came into the starting XI after Arsenal’s embarrassing 5-0 loss at Manchester City.
