Emery calm over title talk after another Arsenal win

The first act of this game, in which Leicester City dominated and briefly led through Ben Chilwell, was a reminder that Arsenal's defensive frailties under...

Unai Emery agrees with Mesut Ozil that Arsenal played "sexy football" as they powered to a 3-1 win against Leicester City.

The north London side have already scored 19 times in the Premier League this season, which is just two goals less than reigning champions Manchester City this term.

"I think he can play each match with this commitment, with this quality, whether he is captain or not captain".

When the players stop for these games, maybe it can do the focus more for us, with training and improving on things.

It was the flawless 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.

Beto O'Rourke supporters can't name any of his accomplishments
Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas) addressed rumors that he might be eyeing a presidential run in 2020, saying, "It's a definitive no". Cruz is locked in a tight race with Congressman Beto O'Rourke but is leading in all polling.

Arsenal came out flying in the second-half and Mesut Ozil was at the heart of everything.

"Yeah", Emery said. "For Mesut, today was a very good performance, and a very good victory together". "For us it's very important to beat Leicester because they are behind us but near [in the table]".

Suddenly, Arsenal were driving forward with objective and they drew level on the stroke of half-time.

They levelled just before the break when Ozil sprinted forward and played a one-two with Bellerin before opening up his foot to place the ball in off the far post.

He was then heavily involved in two goals for substitute Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - who had also netted twice off the bench at Fulham last time out - with Arsenal eventually running out 3-1 winners at the Emirates Stadium.

Ndidi led the Leicester response with a powerful header that rattled the bar from James Maddison's corner.
