See the Player Unai Emery Blamed For Arsenal's Defeat to Leicester City
Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, has said Ainsley Maitland-Niles' red card amid their 3-0 thrashing to Leicester City killed off their odds of getting anything from the game on Sunday.
The outcome saw the Gunners slip to a third straight misfortune and pass up on the opportunity to move once more into the Premier League's main four.
Jamie Vardy proceeded with his hot streak against the Gunners with his late support making it eight objectives in his last nine diversions against them.
Youri Tielemans opened the scoring after Maitland-Niles' first-half rejection.
“We worked, we prepared our game plan, 11 v 11 the match was going like we prepared.
“For me, the first yellow card for [Maitland-Niles] is not for me, it has affected our game plan a lot. One player less is difficult.
“Today the condition [for losing] is the red card.
“We will continue, we will not look at the table, the Europa League is a big motivation for us to win it,” Emery told Sky Sports after the game.
