Arsenal vs. Leicester City - Football Match Report

Claude Puel looks on at St James Park

In a 3-1 win, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the final goal with Mesut Ozil creating wonders in the run of play.

The other player returning to the Arsenal starting lineup is Mesut Ozil, who has recovered from a back injury to face Leicester.

Unai Emery's Arsenal orchestrated three goals of such irresistibly Wenger-esque symphonic beauty it was like watching a tribute band play better than the act they are paying homage to.

That goal sparked Arsenal in to life as we finished the first half strongly and we grabbed a barely-deserved equaliser just before the break.

"We are happy because we are progressing".

'Like today, but also other players that are injured, other players that are on the bench, we want to continue with them also, help them in the next matches, starting against Sporting on Thursday'.

"Very important", Emery said of Ozil's leadership qualities. To continue winning is hard.

Leicester City host West Ham on Saturday.

Leicester were incensed from the resulting free-kick as referee Chris Kavanagh missed the ball clearly hit Holding on the hand as he cleared away from in front of Wilfried Ndidi.

Harry Maguire's towering header forced a good save from Leno and Leicester's pressure reaped a tangible reward in the 31st minute.

The playmaker of Turkish origin swapped passes with Hector Bellerin before sending a side-footed shot on the bounce in off the far post.

Suddenly, Arsenal were driving forward with objective and they drew level on the stroke of half-time.

Ndidi led the Leicester response with a powerful header that rattled the bar from James Maddison's corner.

But Emery still singled out Lichtsteiner for praise because of his attitude on the pitch.

Ozil played a superb pass to Bellerin and the Spaniard's low cross was just right for the unmarked Aubameyang to slot home from close-range.
