Unai Emery says Arsenal showed heart to beat Leicester

Arsenal came from behind to beat Leicester City 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Monday night.

Leicester pushed the north Londoners all the way on their last visit with only a late Olivier Giroud goal sealing an Arsenal win last season.

A brilliant display from Mesut Ozil was integral as Arsenal won their 10th game in a row in all competitions.

While head coach Unai Emery will be slightly concerned by the pedestrian nature of Arsenal's opening 40 minutes, the Spaniard will be pleased to toast a seven-match Premier League winning streak which has taken his side to within two points of the top.

Arsenal, on the other hand, are reportedly waiting until the end of the season before they make the move for Alberto Moreno so as to get him on a free transfer.

Arsenal were struggling defensively and indeed in the final third, and a long-range strike from Alexandre Lacazette in the 26th minute never threatened to trouble Schmeichel.

The playmaker missed the 5-1 win at Fulham ahead of the worldwide break due to a back spasm but is now back in full training alongside Danny Welbeck - who withdrew from the England squad after a hamstring issue.

Mesut Ozil got the goal as he found the bottom corner with a superb finish from a Bellerin cross following a flowing move.

Aubameyang needed less than two minutes to make his mark, with the January arrival from Borussia Dortmund tapping a low Bellerin cross into the back of the net to send the Gunners ahead.

Goalkeeper Petr Cech, defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos, midfielder Ainsley Maitland-Niles, attacking midfielder Mesut Ozil, and striker Danny Welbeck could all be available for selection.
