Daniel Amartey played the entire duration of the game for Leicester City as they crashed out of the Carabao Cup by Arsenal.
The Ghanaian who was given minutes under his belt by his manager at right-back saw his outfit succumb to Mikel Arteta side at the King Power Stadium.
An own goal from Christian Fuchs and late strike from Eddie Nketiah secured Arsenal a 2-0 win against Leicester to book their place in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.
The first goal came on 58 minutes for the Gunners as Nicolas Pepe’s strike hit the post and came back off Fuchs and into the net.
Ayoze Perez had Leicester’s best chance to equalise but could only head wide from Marc Albrighton’s whipped free-kick.
And the Foxes were punished when Nketiah poked home in injury time to see Arsenal progress to the fourth round, where they will play the winners of Thursday’s game between Lincoln City and Liverpool.
Kai Havertz’s hat-trick in Chelsea’s Carabao Cup thrashing of Barnsley will be the “first of many great nights” for him, says Blues boss Frank Lampard.
It was the 21-year-old Germany international’s first goals for the club after arriving from Bayer Leverkusen for £71m earlier this month.
Tammy Abraham put the Blues ahead and had a role in all of Havertz’s goals.
Ross Barkley and Olivier Giroud were also on target as the hosts eased into the fourth round at Stamford Bridge.
