Arsenal beat Leicester to advance in Carabao Cup
An action-packed first half returned no goals, as both Arsenal’s Bernd Leno and Leicester’s Danny Ward stood tall in their respective nets to send the teams into the dressing room at 0-0 after 45 minutes.
Leicester pushed for the equaliser and should have been back on level terms just past 80 minutes, only for Ayoze Perez to spurn a golden opportunity when it would have been easier to score.
Eddie Nketiah then bundled the ball home from close range shortly before full-time to secure the win for Arsenal.
Arsenal will now wait to see the result of Liverpool‘s match against Lincoln City on Thursday (stream live at 2:45 ET on ESPN+ in the U.S.) to determine who they’ll face in the fourth round.
