Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers applauds fans after the match against Everton December 2, 2019. Our live coverage lets you follow all the key moments as they happen.

Arsenal are without a manager having sacked Unai Emery earlier in the week, but Rodgers has only been at Leicester since February. Find out by following our live matchcast.

Kelechi Iheanacho's 94th-minute victor on Sunday condemned Everton to their eighth Premier League defeat of the season, with Silva's side now just two points and one place above the relegation zone. I don't think so much about it. This is an ambition to come here and help the club arrive into the top six.

"I think all the players were so happy for him in there afterwards, as we all are, because there's a lot of guys that are playing regularly, but he's the guy that came into the game today and was the hero for us".

Since he took over in February, Leicester's form has been nothing short of spectacular, with 16 wins and four draws from their 25 league games under the 46-year-old former Liverpool and Celtic boss who now can do no wrong. "I feel we still have a lot of work to do".

Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher suggested the Northern Irishman would be foolish to consider quitting Leicester for Arsenal. I absolutely love it here. This time, however, they are not just chiselling out results, they are playing with a flair that Ranieri's side often lacked. Rodgers's decision to unleash striker Kelechi Iheanacho from the bench proved a masterstroke though.

The Nigeria worldwide, who has struggled in his spell with Leicester thus far, made an instant impression, crossing for Jamie Vardy to tap home the equaliser. Rodgers is not entertaining any title talk just yet.

Former Everton boss Roberto Martinez is disappointed to see Marco Silva's position at Goodison Park in jeopardy but believes it is symptomatic of the modern game. The best teams have spirit. "We found a way with quality and determination".
