Arsenal continued their recent resurgence with a comfortable Premier League win over

Leicester City at King Power Stadium.

The visitors capitalised on a lacklustre start from the hosts to dominate the early exchanges and were

rewarded with a two-goal lead inside 20 minutes.

Gabriel put the Gunners in front, climbing above several static Leicester defenders to head in from
Bukayo Saka’s corner, while Emile Smith Rowe picked his spot when the ball broke to him after good work
from Saka and Alexandre Lacazette.

Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale also produced several fine saves as Mikel Arteta’s side showed defensive

resolve to record a seventh league game without defeat.

They climb from 10th to fifth in the table, level on points with fourth-placed West Ham, before Saturday’s other fixtures.

It was a disappointing afternoon for Leicester who remain in mid-table.

Brendan Rodgers’ side were roared on by an enthusiastic home crowd but struggled to find the rhythm and

poise that helped them to successive victories over Manchester United and Brentford.

James Maddison’s curling free-kick just before the break brought an excellent save from Ramsdale but despite a significant

improvement after the break they were unable to claw themselves back into the contest.

After starting the campaign with three consecutive defeats, which included a dismal display at Manchester City,

Arsenal are beginning to look like a well-oiled machine.

Their fifth victory in seven matches has propelled them into the mix for European places and ensured any pressure

on Arteta has eased.

Emile Smith Rowe has scored four goals in his past seven appearances for Arsenal in all competitions. 

Arteta praises Ramsdale’s ‘great quality’ in win over Leicester and they are now in a good form with a great performance

and excellent play.
