Arsenal vs. Leicester City - Football Match Report

Hello good evening and Welcome to tonight's live coverage of Arsenal v Leicester City on Monday Night Football.

It did appear that Leicester would enter the interval with a one-goal advantage, but Arsenal equalised in the closing stages of the half when Mesut Ozil, who had the captain's armband, carefully placed a low Bellerin cross into the back of the net off the post.

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.

Arsenal have now won their last ten games across all competitions and are next in action away in Portugal in the Europa League against Sporting Lisbon.

That would prove costly, as Arsenal took advantage minutes later.

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.


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.

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

His two goals off the bench came in just three second-half minutes and put the game out of reach for the visitors.

Ozil was again heavily involved as Arsenal scored their third of the night soon after, Aubameyang tucking home from in front of goal after a delicious pass from the German.

Emery has favoured an attacking 4-2-3-1 formation at home and may also recall Aaron Ramsay as part of his line-up with Heinrich Mkhitaryan possibly making way.
