A well-taken goal to bring Arsenal back level-pegging with Leicester, it also elevated Ozil to #1 in the list of German-scoring Premier League players.

Unai Emery has urged his Arsenal squad to continue improving and trusting in his philosophy before they start getting carried away setting their sights on the Premier League title race. However, referee Chris Kavanagh failed to award a spot-kick to the visitors.

Here is our combined Arsenal and Leicester XI...

The north London side have already scored 19 times in the Premier League this season, which is just two goals less than reigning champions Manchester City this term.

Arsenal were slow out the blocks and Leicester were unlucky not to get a penalty when Rob Holding handled in the area but they eventually got the luck they deserved when Ben Chilwell's effort defected past Bernd Leno via Hector Bellerin's boot in the 31st minute.

The hosts were visibly lifted by their leveller as the second half commenced, Henrikh Mkhitaryan spurning a decent chance after smart work from Alexandre Lacazette. Did well to block Kelechi Iheanacho's early shot but didn't look almost as solid as in previous games.

Leicester City attacked well from the onset and would go ahead just seconds past the half-hour mark as they push down the left.

It took the Gabon striker less than two minutes to make the difference, sweeping home from close-range after Ozil's ideal pass allowed Bellerin to send in a low cross.

Ozil stroked home a Bellerin pass to level on the stroke of half time before contributing heavily to two breath-taking goals in three stunning minutes for substitute Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Reminiscent of Aaron Ramsey's superb team goal at Fulham, Lucas Torreira, Guendouzi, Bellerin and Lacazette were all involved as the Foxes were swept aside for Aubameyang to tap in.
