Match: Arsenal v Leicester

Kick-Off (GMT): 22 Oct 20:00
There was a feeling that the international break came at the wrong time for Unai Emery and Arsenal.
The Gunners had won their last nine matches before the break but that run looked to be ending if the first 30 minutes of this match were anything to go by.
Leicester City grabbed a first-half lead when full-back Ben Chilwell pushed forward down the left. His whipped cross was deflected off Hector Bellerin and into the back of the net.
Bellerin had to make amends and did just that when he crossed for Mesut Ozil to make it 1-1 just before the break.

Arsenal came out flying in the second-half and Mesut Ozil was at the heart of everything.
The German opened up Leicester’s defence as he found Bellerin who found Aubameyang who found the back of the net.
Just minutes later and the trio was at it again. Ozil controlled a sublime counter-attack and squared it for Aubameyang to grab his second of the match.
Here are the highlights from Arsenal’s tenth consecutive win (will open in a separate tab).
