Arsenal v. Leicester City

Chris Sutton believes the January transfer window is key for Arsenal, after the Gunners continued their winning run by beating Leicester City 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium on Monday night.

Minutes later, Arsenal would double the lead with Ozil again at the heart of the action with a dummy from a Bellerin pass opening up the Leicester back line and a deft outside-of-the-boot cross teeing up Aubameyang for the easiest of tap ins.

Unai Emery believes that Arsenal will feel the benefit of Mesut Özil's worldwide retirement, dismissing suggestions from his predecessor that it will harm the player's club form. This situation can change the course of the game.

"It is not possible to have another decision other than a penalty and also it was another yellow card and sending off". Both were so good at producing magic on their own.

'It was looking early on in the season that Emery was not sure.

MF Granit Xhaka, 5 - A liability defensively and sloppy with the ball at times, but did well when filling in at left-back after Lichtsteiner was taken off. Arsenal need a lot more from the Switzerland worldwide, who is keeping Aaron Ramsey out of the team.

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

He added: "We got no help from the official".

Granit Xhaka's free-kick was then tipped over by Leicester skipper Kasper Schmeichel as Arsenal looked to respond immediately.

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

Iheanacho then forced a smart save from Gunners stopper Bernd Leno in the sixth minute as the visitors made a strong start to the clash in the English capital, and that was a sign of things to come in the first period.
