Arsenal beat Leicester City 3-1 in Premier League encounter

Mesut Ozil is primed to make his Arsenal return against Leicester on Monday

Mesut Ozil is primed to make his Arsenal return against Leicester on Monday

It is the second game in a row in which a free-flowing attack led to a memorable goal after Aaron Ramsey completed a similar move in the recent thrashing of Fulham - and Emery is keen to see more of the same. With a trip to face Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon to come, Emery is likely to make several changes to his team - even if this appears to be the most hard of Arsenal's group-stage matches.

Aubameyang returned the favour as Ozil cantered into the box and the Arsenal captain then flicked the ball away from the onrushing Kasper Schmeichel and back into Aubameyang's path.

The first half was dominated by the Foxes until Bellerin's own goal acted as a catalyst for Arsenal's resurgence in the match.

But Arsenal grew into the game and captain Mesut Ozil equalised after he stroked in a left footed shot off the post to finish off a flowing move. The last time they failed to win a game was on August 18 and the visitors will be keen to keep that winning feeling intact in the Portuguese capital.

He believes it is a testament of the Spaniard's work on the training pitch that Arsenal look such a well-drilled side with clear instructions on how to go about their business.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang came off the bench after 61 minutes and made an instant impact following another stunning pass from Ozil. It's unclear whether Ainsley Maitland-Niles would be fit enough to fill in on the left but Stephan Lichtsteiner is always available to play at left-back once again.

Of Arsenal's next six Premier League opponents, five are in the top half as of writing.

MF Henrikh Mkhitaryan, 5 - A fairly ineffective display by the Armenian, who couldn't get much going with the ball.

In the past, the German's application and desire has regularly come under criticism and plenty of Arsenal supporters have criticised his sometimes "lazy" approach to games.

Video footage from Alexander Lacazette's Instagram story shows Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan messing around.

The Uruguayan has been instrumental to the Gunners' seventh successive victory in the Premier League.

MF Aaron Ramsey, N/R - Came on when the game was already decided and didn't have almost the same impact he had against Fulham.
