Arsenal beat Leicester City 3-1 at the Emirates after a Mesut Ozil masterclass helped beat Claude Puel’s Foxes to make it ten wins on the bounce for Unai Emery’s impressive side.
The talented playmaker scored one and had a hand in substitute Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s brace which clinched the game after the Gunners had fallen behind to Ben Chilwell’s cross following a deflection off Hector Bellerin to wrong-foot Bernd Leno.
Despite going a goal down on 31 minutes Arsenal are made of sterner stuff these days and replied on the stroke of half-time after a wonderfully flowing move.
Mesut Ozil, fully recovered from a back spasm drove forward down the right flank before playing a ball out wide to the rampaging Bellerin.
The pacy defender fed the German who had continued his run into the box before angling the ball across Kasper Schmeichel and into the net via the far post to level at 1-1 60 seconds before the interval.
