Ozil and Aubameyang combine to sink Leicester as Arsenal continue winning streak

It should be a cracker at the Emirates Stadium as Unai Emery's in-form side take on a Leicester team who have had their best start to a Premier League season since 2016.

The Gunners are just two points off top spot after extending their winning run in all competitions to 10 matches in a row thanks to an excellent second-half performance against Leicester City.

MF Aaron Ramsey, N/R - Came on when the game was already decided and didn't have almost the same impact he had against Fulham.

That would prove costly, as Arsenal took advantage minutes later.

Arsenal probably should have had a fourth, but Lacazette's look on the doorstep was smothered well by Schmeichel. That signing of Bergkamp revolutionised the club and took them to titles.

Arsenal were slow out the blocks and Leicester were unlucky not to get a penalty when Rob Holding handled in the area but they eventually got the luck they deserved when Ben Chilwell's effort defected past Bernd Leno via Hector Bellerin's boot in the 31st minute.

Schmeichel kept out a dipping Granit Xhaka free kick in the period that followed, before the Leicester goalkeeper had to keep out a strike from Alex Iwobi as the home side chased for a leveller before the break.

Bellerin just gets in over Ricardo for Leicester. But we had the chances to score and to lead in the game with the header from Ndidi hitting the bar.

Aubameyang needed less than two minutes to make his mark, with the January arrival from Borussia Dortmund tapping a low Bellerin cross into the back of the net to send the Gunners ahead. Indeed, Lacazette released Ozil inside the Leicester box with a fine pass, and the German's flick was turned home by Aubameyang for his second of the match.

'I know there's Arsenal fans who think people like us have something against Mesut Ozil.
