Ainsley Maitland-Niles red card vs Leicester

Leicester outplayed Arsenal at the King Power Stadium in the first half on Sunday.

To be honest, the contest wasn’t even close.

Not only did Leicester dominate possession, they also carried the greater goal threat.

Maitland-Niles was ultimately red carded after his mistimed a sliding tackle on James Maddison near the halfway line.

Maitland-Niles originally went into the book in just the eighth minute as he blocked a Leicester attack.
