Five lessons to take from Arsenal’s 3-1 win over Leicester

Arsenal on Monday night beat Leicester City 3-1 in an EPL encounter as Gabonese striker Emerick Aubameyang scored a brace for the Gunners.

The German was in scintillating form in the 3-1 victory over the Foxes, scoring once and playing a major part in the two others, scored by Aubameyang.

Arsenal will now seek to make it 11 wins on the bounce in all competitions when they travel to Portugal to take on Sporting CP in the Europa League on Thursday.

Ozil turned provider for Arsenal's second goal when the former Real Madrid manager teed up Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to edge Emery's men into a second-half lead.

"As you can see on the pitch we're way more organised and the football flows a bit more, but as I've said, it's only the start and there's a lot of work we still need to do".

"Each match and training Mesut Ozil's commitment is very good".

The Spanish manager´s two-game losing streak at the start of his Arsenal reign is now a distant memory as Gunners fans start to dream of a title challenge after their seventh successive league win. "We're only thinking of each match".

'Mesut is a player that always keeps giving his best and is always surprising everyone and he's a player that we're very grateful and very lucky to have.

Referee Christopher Kavanagh dismissed Leicester's appeals, with Claude Puel protesting from the technical area.

Stunned into action by that setback, Arsenal almost snatched an immediate equaliser when Granit Xhaka´s free-kick was tipped over by Kasper Schmeichel.

The visitors were unable to hold out until the interval as Arsenal's head of steam saw them draw level courtesy of Ozil, who steered Bellerin's low cross past Schmeichel with aplomb in the last minute of the half.

Bellerin immediately sent the feed back into the box for a give-and-go with Ozil.

Leicester came within inches of retaking the lead as Leno charged off his line but got nowhere near James Maddison's corner, which Ndini thundered against the crossbar. N'didi then thread it through to Chilwell, whose first touch took him away from Bellerin before his attempted cross was diverted into the Arsenal goal by the defender.
