Ozil, Aubameyang Shine as Arsenal Make it Perfect 10

Mesut Ozil and substitute Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were the standout performers as Arsenal swept to their 10th successive win with a dominant 3-1 victory against Leicester City on Monday.

Unai Emery’s side made a false start after Hector Bellerin turned into his own net in the first-half following a cross from Leicester’s Ben Chilwell.

But Ozil, captaining Arsenal on his return to the side after back spasms, produced a majestic display to lead the Gunners’ impressive fightback.

The German playmaker, returning to his best after a poor start to the season, equalised just before half-time and played a key role in Aubameyang’s second-half double.

Gabon striker Aubameyang scored twice in quick succession after coming off the bench, ensuring Arsenal won 10 consecutive matches in all competitions for the first time since 2007.

They have scored 30 goals in that blistering streak and climb to fourth place in the Premier League, just two points behind leaders Manchester City.

On the 69th birthday of Emery’s predecessor Arsene Wenger, this was the kind of swashbuckling show that recalled Arsenal’s glory days under the Frenchman.

It was the perfect start to a hectic week that sees Arsenal travel to Portugal for a Europa League tie against Sporting Lisbon on Thursday before returning to domestic action at Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Emery has made a remarkable impact since replacing Wenger in the close-season, and the Gunners are only yearning for more.
