Mesut Ozil was at his playmaking best as Arsenal stormed back from a goal down to beat Leicester City 3-1 at the Emirates on Monday night.

Leicester had the better of the play early on and found a deserved opener in the 31st minute when Ben Chilwell’s cross from the left took a slight deflection off Hector Bellerin and found its way into the back of Bernd Leno’s net.

Arsenal upped the tempo after conceding, though, and were level before the break after Ozil, named captain for the match, started and finished a slick team move with a first-time shot to make it 1-1 at the half.

Ozil pulled the string for the hosts’ second just past the hour mark, playing a defence-splitting through ball to Bellerin who crossed for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to finish from close range to make it 2-1 Arsenal.

Minutes later, Arsenal would double the lead with Ozil again at the heart of the action with a dummy from a Bellerin pass opening up the Leicester back line and a deft outside-of-the-boot cross teeing up Aubameyang for the easiest of tap ins.
