Ozil inspires Arsenal to 10th successive win

Then in front, we are looking at Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea.

Arsenal took on Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium in an English Premier League fixture.

The high press that Leicester exerted within the first 25 minutes especially gave Arsenal a lot of problems, seeing them pinned back in their half for much of that opening period.

Emery refused to criticise the Premier League for moving their meeting with Leicester to Monday evening for television purposes.

Within five minutes of entering the field, Aubameyang had a brace to his name and Arsenal had three points in the bag.

Emery is fast becoming a hero at the Emirates following an impressive start to the reason. Want to challenge the best English Fantasy Managers?

Emery knows a win at the Estadio Jose Alvalade will put Arsenal within touching distance of a place in the knockout round, and he said: "For us this competition is very, very important".

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

Fresh arrivals in all departments of the field has also allowed Emery to strengthen all aspects of their games.

And then the Gunners' third goal was truly something special, with the build-up starting with goalkeeper Bernd Leno and ending with Aubameyang tapping home from close range.

While Lucas Torreira and Mateo Gendhouzi bring more quality to the midfield.


Ozil, who was handed the captain's armband, was praised for the way he rallied his side to victory, as the influential midfielder levelled the scoring to make him the leading all time German goalscorer in Premier League history.

We've also been handed a boost as Sokratis is back in the squad after recovering from an ankle injury that he sustained during the recent worldwide break so the Greek star could make his comeback against Sporting.

A new energy in the club seems to have infected the players with some serious positive charge.

Ozil can be seen watching back his own performance on his phone, including his goal, and Aubameyang couldn't resist making fun of catching him doing so. It has led to some fans and analysts questioning whether Arsenal are genuine title challengers.
