Arsenal made a slow start to the match and fell behind when Hector Bellerin deflected Ben Chilwell's cross into his own net.

Here is our combined Arsenal and Leicester XI...

A sublime display from captain Mesut Ozil inspired Arsenal as they came from behind to beat Leicester and extend their winning run to 10 games.

Arsenal probably should have had a fourth, but Lacazette's look on the doorstep was smothered well by Schmeichel.

Leicester came within inches of retaking the lead as Leno charged off his line but got nowhere near James Maddison's corner, which Ndini thundered against the crossbar.

Ozil then created the third goal as his dummy allowed Alexandre Lacazette to play a neat throughball back to the German and Mesut unselfishly dinked the ball across the goal for Aubameyang to tap home for 3-1. Still, Leicester proved pesky and almost put themselves back in front in the 58th minute as Wilfred Ndidi headed a corner straight into the crossbar.

The Gunners are on a run of nine straight league wins and have never lost to the Foxes at home in the Premier League - a record they will be desperate to continue as they bid to stay in touch with Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur at the top of the table.

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

Lacazette should have made it 4-1 in the 78th minute when he was presented with a low cross inside the Leicester box, but Schmeichel was on hand to make a fine save.

It is now 3-1 to Arsenal.
