Arsenal extended their unbeaten run to nine games in all competitions, with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Leicester City. The Gunners capitalised well from a blistering start that saw them score two early goals through Gabriel and Emile Smith Rowe, before going into the defensive mode to defend their lead in the second half.

Arsenal Players Rated Vs Leicester City

Aaron Ramsdale 8/10

An extraordinary performance from Aaron Ramsdale, who made three important saves to keep his team in the contest. Played a big role in helping Arsenal keep the clean sheet.

Takehiro Tomiyasu 7/10

Takehiro Tomiyasu remained solid at right-back. He did have some troubles up against Harvey Barnes, but not enough to allow Leicester the opportunity to make a breakthrough.

Ben White 7/10

Enjoyed an excellent game at the heart of the Arsenal backline. He looked solid in his tackles, keeping Jamie Vardy in check throughout the game.

Gabriel Magalhaes 8/10

Gabriel Magalhaes was arguably the best defender for Arsenal in this contest. His imposing presence made it difficult for the Foxes to get back into the game while also scoring the all-important opener.

Nuno Tavares 7/10

Nuno Tavares showcased his offensive prowess to keep the opposition under pressure. Had more defensive duties in the second half, but largely remained resilient.

Thomas Partey 7.5/10

Thomas Partey had an excellent game in the middle of the park. He remained resolute and dealt well with the pressure of the Leicester City midfielders. Used his box to box qualities to good use as well.

Arsenal star Tomiyasu.

Albert Sambi Lokonga 7.5/10

Albert Sambi Lokonga offered support to Partey in the second line of press. His presence was critical in denying Leicester the chance to dominate proceedings.

Bukayo Saka 7.5/10

Bukayo Saka was a menace down the right-hand channel due to his pace and trickery. He probed the Leicester defence at every given opportunity, while notably registering the assist for the Gabriel goal.

Emile Smith Rowe 7.5/10

Emile Smith Rowe continued his good form with an active display in the final third. He was a useful ball-carrier in the final third, scoring an excellent goal to cap off the performance.

Alexandre Lacazette 7/10

Alexandre Lacazette worked hard for his team, as usual. His energy and work ethic was an asset for Arsenal in their first line of press before the Frenchman eventually made way for Martin Odegaard.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang 6/10

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang offered more in the defensive game but was unable to make a noticeable impact on the proceedings.

SUBSTITUTES

Martin Odegaard

Martin Odegaard had to do a lot of defensive work after coming on for Lacazette early on in the second half. Did offer more quality in possession, though.

Nicolas Pepe

A late replacement for Saka.

Sead Kolasinac

A late replacement for Smith Rowe.
