Leicester superiority sends them nine points clear of Arsenal.
This was a huge game for Unai Emery, possibly a must win one and we will know within the next couple of weeks if it is his last one in charge at the Emirates.
The brutal truth is that the better team won and could done so by far more.
The first half was littered with tiny individual mistakes but in all fairness, Arsenal stayed solid. However, you had a feeling that it was always going to just a matter of time before Leicester made the breakthrough.
The Foxes always looked dangerous and there was a distinct lack of ambition from Arsenal. That was always going to be the case when you consider the negativity of the Arsenal line up. There was no real width and if the idea was to counter then leaving two of your fastest players on the bench was always questionable.
The half finished all square but goals were going to come one way or another, the game was just too open.
The second half started the way the first finished, Arsenal struggling to hold onto the ball and Leicester looking the most likely scorers.
And so it proved to be.
Jamie Vardy, who was incidentally left all alone in the area, put the Foxes one up on the 67th minute and the game really opened up from that point onwards.
But it was not Arsenal that was opening the game up but rather Leicester and the second goal, courtesy of James Maddison in the 76th minute was always on the cards.
Arsenal simply did not look like they had the know-how to get back into the game, the drive was missing, in fact, half the team went missing.
That said, the performance itself was better than we have seen in recent weeks. The problem though is the bar was really low and the improvement simply was not enough.
There was more fight and passion from the lads and the shape of the team stayed intact, for the most part. But confidence is clearly low and questions will be asked if Emery is the man to get the team out of the rut they are now in.
The post mortem will not be kind to Emery, that is an absolute certainty.
