- Jamie Vardy found the net for the 22nd time in the 2019/20 season
- Youri Tielemans says the point earned in north London could be 'massive' for City
- The Belgian star also praised Demarai Gray for providing the assist for Vardy's strike

Jamie Vardy's 84th-minute strike - his 22nd in the Premier League this season - restored parity on the scoresheet following Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's opener in the first half.

The Gunners were reduced to 10 men in the second period, as Eddie Nketiah saw red with 15 minutes remaining, and City continued to push for a point which takes their total to 59.

Leicester are now one point behind Chelsea and four above Manchester United, who face Aston Villa on Thursday - and Tielemans hopes it could make a difference for the Foxes.

Great Character & Mentality, Says Tielemans

Foxes midfielder Youri Tielemans spoke to LCFC TV following their 1-1 draw with Arsenal in the Premier League.

"A point is a point," the Belgium international told LCFC TV. "We conceded a goal early on, but we showed great character and mentality to come back into the game.

"We tried and pushed up until the end to grab three points. We only got one, but it’s still a massive point and it could count at the end of the season.

"We came back from the restart really fit and we just have to keep going. Now, the games are coming, so we have to be ready in every game and recover as much as we can."

Tielemans also stated his admiration for the quality of substitute Demarai Gray's assist for Vardy only nine minutes after City's No.7 joined the action from the bench.

"It was a great cross and that’s the ball we need in the box," he added. "I know we have Vards in there who can run into the space, but it was a great cross and a great finish.

"It helped us a lot to get this point."
