Brendan Rodgers hailed 'world class' Jamie Vardy as the Leicester striker came off the bench to haunt Arsenal once again.

The forward notched the winner at the Emirates to move the Foxes to within a point of the Premier League summit, though Leicester rode their luck after the Gunners saw Alexandre Lacazette's header dubiously ruled out - much to manager Mikel Arteta's annoyance.

Arsenal, who famously tried to sign Vardy in 2016, will be sick of the sight of the 33-year-old - who has now notched 11 times in 12 games against the Londoners.

Vardy missed Leicester's previous two fixtures ahead of last night's triumph with a calf problem.

Rodgers insisted he didn't want to take any risks with his talismanic attacker and Vardy concurred, saying: 'Me and the manager spoke yesterday and that was always the plan because I'm coming back from a little niggle.

'You don't want to be chucked straight in, it's about feeling your way back into it. It was probably going to be the last 20 minutes or half-an-hour and that's what has happened.

Luckily I came on and made an impact.'

But Leicester were indebted to a controversial decision to disallow Lacazette's first-half goal, which would have put the Gunners 1-0 up.

From the section Leicester . Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers says he is "very fortunate" to have a striker like Jamie Vardy at his disposal. The England international scored twice against Arsenal, taking his tally to 10 goals in his last nine games. MATCH REPORT: Leicester 3-0 Arsenal.

But Arteta said: 'We've not been given an explanation why. It is harsh because Granit is behind Schmeichel, he is not in front of him so the ball is away from him.

'We can have our view but we have specialists, the referees, to make the decisions.

'They made a call that it wasn't allowed but it obviously had a massive impact on the game because there were two teams where the margins were minimal.'

Equally, however, Rodgers pointed to another perplexing decision by Craig Pawson not to hand Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin a second yellow card following a rash lunge on James Justin.

'It was an interesting one, it's a foul so you would have to ask the referee that one,' added Rodgers.
