Kelechi Iheanacho featured for Leicester City in the Carabao Cup clash which saw the Foxes knocked out at home by Arsenal in a 2-0 defeat.
Wilfred Ndidi was left out with a groin injury which he sustained during premier league clash against Burnley on Sunday.
Although Iheanacho attempted to open scoring early in the game, his point blank effort was saved by Arsenal’s keeper Bernd Leno.
Christian Fuchs’ second-half own goal gave the Gunners the lead and Eddie Nketiah bundled home in stoppage time to add gloss to the victory for a Mikel Arteta’s side that once again did not include Mesut Ozil.
Anglo-Nigerian player Bukayo Saka was also named Man Of The Match for his outstanding performance for the Gunners.
However, the youngster was denied a penalty with Daniel Amartey’s pressure in the 18 box. Arteta had tried to point it out to the referee who chose to ignore.
The result means Arsenal have maintained their strong start to the season with a possible trip to Anfield to face Liverpool if the Premier League champions can beat Lincoln City on Thursday.
Next, Leicester travel to face Manchester City on Sunday, while Arsenal have an extra day of rest before taking on Premier League champions Liverpool at Anfield on Monday evening.
