Aubameyang double inspires Arsenal comeback against Leicester

Meust Ozil and a brace from substitute Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with the goals to bring Unai Emery's side just two points off the top of the Premier League.

Arsenal then started to take control and equalized just before halftime when Ozil made a run from the midway line, passed to Bellerin on the right and side-footed the defender's quick return off the inside of the far post.

This is clearly not the same erratic Arsenal football fans had become accustomed to over the recent years. "We need to control matches more than we are doing now".

"We have captains. He can play every match with his commitment with or without the armband". "Working on tactical things and video things to help them to find the best performance". And nor should he be.

With a trip to face Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon to come, Emery is likely to make several changes to his team - even if this appears to be the most hard of Arsenal's group-stage matches. The three played for Stoke City and Leicester City, Arsenal and Chelsea respectively. But they have not shown the defensive security to be considered true title contenders, not yet anyway.

Emery, though, refused to get carried away when asked whether Arsenal can consider themselves contenders having beaten Leicester to record their longest winning run since 2007.

Granit Xhaka's free-kick was then tipped over by Leicester skipper Kasper Schmeichel as Arsenal looked to respond immediately. Of the seven teams that have overcome, only two now reside in the top half and three sit in the bottom four.

They have also maintained a 100% start to their Europa League campaign this term after winning their first two matches. It's unclear whether Ainsley Maitland-Niles would be fit enough to fill in on the left but Stephan Lichtsteiner is always available to play at left-back once again.

Arsenal travel back from the Iberian Peninsula to south London for a derby clash with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Sunday lunchtime against Roy Hodgson's Eagles. This is the player he was for Real Madrid all those years ago, and for Germany as they won the World Cup in 2014.
