This game should have been Uli Hoeness to calmly look at. The 3:1 (1:1)-home win for Arsenal against Leicester City on the ninth day of Premier League round Mesut Ozil was the outstanding man on the court. The captain of the Gunners scored the first goal of his team, opened the second and put the third party directly.
The guests got the better Start and had early can lead. In the 17. Minute, Arsenal was lucky that it was after a hand game of Rob Holding in the penalty area not a penalty for Leicester. Shortly thereafter, the German Gunners goalkeeper Bernd Leno showed a strong Parade against a head ball of the English national team player Harry Maguire (19.).
After a good half hour it was happening, but: Arsenal defender Héctor Bellerín, drew a pass from Ben Chilwell unhappy to 0:1 into his own goal (31.). Only after that the hosts found better into the game and came up short before the break they were level. Ozil drove the Ball with pace through the midfield and opened the scoring after a fine one-two pass with the right mitgelaufenen Bellerín from 14 metres, placed into the far corner (45.). It was his third of the season was a hit, with the German record goal scorer in the Premier League ascent.

In the second half Özil switched then finally in Gala mode: First of all, he played a dream interface pass on Bellerín, which was half right. The Spaniard served with a flat to the submission of the substitute Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who met at the back post to guide the Gunners (63.).
Only three minutes later the best goal of the day followed: After a win the ball in the own half, the Ball at the middle line first came to Özil who passed by hoe on Bellerín. The Spaniard played to Granit Xhaka, who wanted to re-use Özil. But the German was on the Ball and started with pace in the penalty area. There he got the bullet in the barrel served and put on by pass to Aubameyang, who had to re-insert only (66.). A fantastic attack!
For Aubameyang of the season goals five and six were. Özil was in the 80’s. Minute replaced and with a Standing ovation adopted. By the tenth game victory in a row, Arsenal holds the connection to the top of the table and two points behind Manchester City and Liverpool and level on points with Chelsea and Tottenham in fourth place. Leicester falls back on rank eleven.
