Arsenal's Mesut Ozil celebrates scoring his side's first goal of the game during the Premier League match at the Emirates Stadium, London.

And Ozil was thrilled to justify being given the armband by Unai Emery with a wonderful individual display that saw Arsenal move up to fourth in the Premier League table after a seventh straight win. The Foxes got their revenge last May with a 3-1 victory at the King Power Stadium.

This is not the first time that Arsenal have started slowly.

Rob Holding handballed in the penalty area but referee Chris Kavanagh did not point to the spot despite appearing to have a clear view. Ben Chilwell burst down the flank past Alexandre Lacazette and behind Hector Bellerin just enough that as Bellerin hoped to recover, Chilwell's cross clipped Bellerin's foot and into the back of the net, with goalkeeper Bernd Leno already diving the wrong way to stop the cross. The three played for Stoke City and Leicester City, Arsenal and Chelsea respectively. He does go missing in games where Arsenal don't dominate the ball and in thew big games I'd question if he's turned up'. Did well to block Kelechi Iheanacho's early shot but didn't look almost as solid as in previous games.


Henrikh Mkhitaryan had a wonderful chance to send Arsenal ahead early in the second period following a mix-up inside the Leicester box, but the Armenian fired just wide of the post from a unsafe position. Bellerin sent the ball into the mixer with Ozil waiting at the top of the box.

Ozil was again heavily involved as Arsenal scored their third of the night soon after, Aubameyang tucking home from in front of goal after a delicious pass from the German.

With games against Sporting Lisbon (Europa League), Crystal Palace (Premier League) and Blackpool (Carabao Cup) up next for Arsenal, attention will quickly turn to the arrival of Liverpool on November 3.
