After both teams take a knee, Arsenal get us underway.
Nelson wins the ball off Albrighton in midfield and tries to bend one from 20 yards out and it is punched onto the roof of the net by Ward.
Albrighton, bends a lovely pass through for Iheanacho but Leno is out well to block it away.
Gray wins a free-kick… but Leicester can’t get it down to shoot when it’s launched into the box.
Pepe earns Arsenal a corner… but when it breaks to Kolasinac on the edge of the box his shot is high and wide.
Saka moves past Albrighton out wide on the left and then passes the ball through the six-yard area.
Saka is convinced it was a foul but the ref says no. A neat one-two on the edge of the box with Nketiah puts him through before he hits the deck under pressure from Amartey.
A corner breaks to him about 15 yards out, just to the right of the penalty spot, but he clips his shot across goal and well wide.
Saliba is warming up on the touchline but it looks like David Luiz is going to be ok to carry on.
We’ve got two minutes of time added..
