That's all for today. Thank you for following our live coverage. Until next time, goodbye!
The Foxes will be confident of taking all three points when they travel to relegation-battling Bournemouth on Sunday. Meanwhile, it is the North London derby for Arsenal, who face Tottenham Hotspur in what could be a crucial showdown in the race to secure European football.
Jamie Vardy's late equaliser secured a point for Leicester City as they held 10-man Arsenal to a 1-1 draw at the Emirates. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gave the Gunners a half-time lead but they were reduced to 10 men when Eddie Nketiah was sent off within minutes of coming on. Leicester capitalised on their numerical advantage to earn a share of the spoils and maintain a four-point buffer over fifth-placed Manchester United in their battle to secure Champions League football next season.
90' + 7' The Gunners are pegged back inside their own half as Leicester patiently try to turn up the pressure in the dying moments. Gray eventually delivers the ball into the box, but Martinez gathers easily.
90' + 5' Good tackle! Arsenal look to finish with a flourish and Willock looks to make his way into the box. However, Soyuncu stands his ground well to make a vital and well-timed interception.
A. Maitland-Niles
P. Aubameyang
90' + 3' Aubameyang's day is over as he goes off to be replaced by Ainsley Maitland-Niles.
90' There are going to be eight minutes of stoppage time and Leicester certainly have the momentum. Can they complete the turnaround and record their first away league win at Arsenal since 1973?
S. Mustafi
Yellow Card
88' Mustafi has his name taken after a late challenge on Barnes.
86' Goal number 22 in the Premier League this season for Vardy! It has been a good week for the Leicester number nine, who scored his 100th in the competition against Crystal Palace on Saturday. This is also his 10th strike in as many games against Arsenal.
J. Vardy
84' VARDY!!! LEICESTER HAVE EQUALISED! The Premier League's top scorer makes it 1-1 as he arrives late at the far post to turn home Gray's cross. There is a VAR check for a possible offside, but it rules in the Foxes' favour. Game on!
D. Gray
84' Gray makes an almost immediate impact from the bench as his inviting cross was begging to be attacked.
D. Praet
W. Ndidi
82' Leicester turn to the bench once more with Dennis Praet coming on for Ndidi.
L. Torreira
Dani Ceballos
80' Ceballos is given a well-earned rest as he goes off to be replaced by Lucas Torreira.
79' It is set to be a dramatic finish to this game with Arsenal down to 10 men and Leicester desperate to keep their Champions League hopes on track. Can they make their numerical advantage count?
D. Gray
R. Bennett
76' A change for Leicester as Demarai Gray replaces Bennett.
E. Nketiah
Red Card
75' RED CARD FOR NKETIAH! Arsenal down to 10 men! Within moments of coming on, Nketiah is given his marching orders for a rash foul on Justin. The referee initially showed the youngster a yellow card but, after a lengthy consultation with VAR, changed it to a red.
73' Another impressive performance from Saka. That assist for Aubameyang's goal was his 12th in all competitions this season.
J. Willock
B. Saka
71' Another change for the Gunners sees Joe Willock replace Saka.
E. Nketiah
A. Lacazette
71' That was Lacazette's last action as he goes off to be replaced by Eddie Nketiah.
68' OFFSIDE! NO GOAL! Arsenal manage to get forward and force a corner, from which Lacazette turns the ball home at the far post. However, he had just strayed into an offside position and was spotted by Sian Massey-Ellis on the far side.
66' The Foxes continue to turn up the pressure and the ball falls kindly for Vardy in the box, but he is unable to get a clean strike away and Arsenal clear.
64' There are just over 25 minutes left to play at the Emirates. Arsenal still hold the advantage but Leicester are beginning to ask more questions as the clock ticks down.
61' Barnes will be looking to provide a creative spark upon his introduction. The attacking midfielder has registered eight assists in the Premier League this season. Only Kevin de Bruyne, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Son Heung-Min and Adama Traore have more.
C. Fuchs
M. Albrighton
59' The other Leicester change sees Albrighton make way for Christian Fuchs.
H. Barnes
K. Iheanacho
59' A double change for Leicester. The first sees Harvey Barnes introduced in favour of Iheanacho.
57' Before today, Martinez had kept six clean sheets in his eight Premier League appearances for Arsenal. That 75 per cent ratio is the best of any Gunners goalkeeper with at least five starts to their name.
55' CHANCE! Vardy turns provider as he demonstrates brilliant awareness to pick out Iheanacho with a clipped ball into the box. The Nigerian connects well with the volley but Martinez hangs onto it.
53' After taking a blow to the face earlier in the game, Mustafi is down again for Arsenal after landing awkwardly when jumping for a corner.
52' Good save! The Brazilian's delivery is creeping towards the far corner and Schmeichel is forced to scramble across and turn the ball away.
51' The Foxes have a free-kick to deal with first of all after Evans is penalised for a foul 30 yards from goal. Luiz is standing over the ball...
49' Leicester are aiming to come from behind in this second half and record their third consecutive league win over Arsenal. If they do so, it would be the first time the Foxes have achieved the feat since 1963.
46' We're back underway as Arsenal get the ball rolling once more.
Although they have threatened at times, Leicester will be looking for a positive reaction after the break. The Foxes have struggled to utilise their attacking qualities and looked uncharacteristically nervy in defence today.
Arsenal lead Leicester at the Emirates thanks to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's 20th Premier League goal of the season. The Gunners have provided plenty of threat so far at the Emirates Stadium and will be aiming for more of the same in the second half.
45' + 4' Leicester launch one final attack of the half as Albrighton's deep cross into the box reaches Justin. However, the former Luton man is unable to direct his header towards goal.
45' + 2' Mustafi has received the required medical attention and is now back in the thick of the action.
45' A worry for Arsenal as Mustafi stays down clutching his face. The German was accidentally caught by the boot of Vardy as he and the Leicester striker battled for the ball.
43' Arsenal are demonstrating such a dangerous threat whenever they attack Leicester. Arteta will be pleased with the intent of his players but he knows they must capitalise while in the ascendency.
41' Lacazette has fond memories of playing against Leicester at the Emirates. He found the net in a 4-3 victory over the Foxes on his debut for the Gunners in August 2017.
39' CHANCE! Terrific vision from Bellerin, who cuts in from the right before floating a beautiful cross towards Lacazette at the far post. The Frenchman connects well with his header but sends it straight into the grateful arms of Schmeichel.
37' That was a lot more encouraging from Leicester and there is no question in the attacking qualities they possess. With 63 goals so far, only Liverpool and Man City have found the net more times in the Premier League this season.
35' NO GOAL! Leicester put the ball in the net as Iheanacho arrives to turn home Vardy's cross. However, the whistle had already been blown after the Nigerian had committed a foul on Kolasinac on his way to connecting with the centre.
32' GREAT SAVES! Schmeichel to the rescue twice in quick succession for Leicester. First, he gets a strong palm onto Lacazette's powerful low shot. Then moments later, he reacts quickly to tip Bellerin's effort over the crossbar.
31' Arsenal very much on top at the moment and on course for a 13th consecutive home league victory over Leicester. That would equal their best such sequence in the top flight, having done the same against Stoke City between 1983 and 2018.
29' Good save! Schmeichel called into action again following another quickfire move from Arsenal in which Lacazette tees up Saka, who is denied by the foot of the Leicester skipper.
28' Only Burnley's Nick Pope has registered more clean sheets than Schmeichel in the Premier League this season, but there will not be one for the Dane today. Additionally, having not won on the road since New Year's Day, Leicester must now come from behind to end that run.
26' VITAL CLEARANCE! The tables turn for Arsenal as Aubameyang races down the wing before looking for Saka at the far post. Fortunately for Leicester, Soyuncu tracks the youngster's run and is able to clear in the nick of time.
23' The race for the Premier League's golden boot is hotting up! That takes Aubameyang to within one of Vardy at the top of the goalscoring charts. Can the Leicester frontman respond accordingly?
B. Saka
21' Saka was the provider as he latched onto Ceballos' terrific through ball before putting his cross on a plate for Aubameyang.
P. Aubameyang
21' AUBAMEYANG!!! ARSENAL LEAD! The skipper bags his 20th goal of the season as he arrives late at the far post to turn home Saka's inviting cross.
20' Nothing came out that corner but Arsenal have another in the space of a couple of minutes. A neat one-two between Saka and Bellerin puts the winger in behind before Leicester eventually turn the ball behind.
17' Arsenal go back on the attack and Tierney delivers a dangerous ball from the left flank, but Evans is alert and turns it behind for a corner.
14' Leicester have certainly settled into their rhythm over the past few minutes. Only Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea have completed more passes than the Foxes in the Premier League this season, and their quality in possession is evident.
12' Good save! Leicester neatly work a corner and Albrighton pulls the ball back to an unmarked Iheanacho in the box. The former Manchester City forward's low strike goes through a crowded area, but Martinez reacts well to block with his outstretched leg.
9' Good effort! At the other end, Leicester have their first sight on goal as the ball breaks kindly for Vardy just outside the area. The Premier League's top scorer lets fly and Martinez has to concentrate as he holds onto the powerful effort.
7' Arsenal have started with plenty of confidence today. Despite defeat to Brighton in their return from lockdown, the Gunners have since reeled off three consecutive victories - keeping clean sheets on each occasion - and will be eyeing more of the same here.
5' The hosts continue to threaten and good persistence from Tierney sees the former Celtic full-back dig out a cross from the touchline. The ball reaches Saka but rather than take on a difficult volley, he tries to take a touch and Soyuncu comes across to clear.
3' Arsenal burst onto the attack as Kolasinac and Xhaka link up with Aubameyang, who lifts the ball into the area looking for Lacazette. However, the Leicester defence stands firm to snuff out the danger.
1' AWAY WE GO! Our referee for today, Chris Kavanagh blows his whistle and Leicester get the match underway.
The teams are making their way out onto the field and kick-off is moments away.
It is worth noting that the Foxes have not won on the road since New Year’s Day. The last team they would have wanted to face in a bid to end that record is Arsenal, who have beaten them on their last 12 visits to the red half of North London.
Meanwhile, Brendan Rodgers' single change to Leicester's victory over Crystal Palace is enforced. On-loan Ryan Bennett makes his first start as he replaces Ben Chilwell, who misses out with a foot injury. James Maddison, who scored in the reverse fixture in November, also misses out with a hip problem.
Mikel Arteta makes two changes to the Arsenal side that started Saturday's win at Wolves. Hector Bellerin replaces Cedric Soares in the right wing-back role and, after finding the net in that 2-0 victory, Alexandre Lacazette returns to the lead the line.
SUBS: Danny Ward, Wes Morgan, Christian Fuchs, Nampalys Mendy, Hamza Choudhury, Matthew James, Dennis Praet, Harvey Barnes, Demarai Gray.
LEICESTER CITY (3-4-1-2): Kasper Schmeichel (captain); Ryan Bennett, Jonny Evans, Caglar Soyuncu; James Justin, Wilfred Ndidi, Youri Tielemans, Marc Albrighton; Ayoze Perez; Kelechi Iheanacho, Jamie Vardy.

Third-place Leicester are aiming to consolidate their top-four status as they look to secure Champions League football next season. Meanwhile, in-form Arsenal are bidding for a fourth consecutive victory that would move them level on points with sixth-placed Wolves.
