Emery explains why he lost against City, Chelsea

Man on fire Will Lacazette continue his goal scoring form against Leicester City

Arsenal looks to pick up where it left off prior to the worldwide break when it hosts Leicester City at the Emirates on Monday.

And so far Monreal has turned out to become one of Arsenal's most consistent players.

The 30-year-old was back in the starting XI on Monday night at the Emirates - having missed the trip to Craven Cottage before the global break - and was handed the captain's armband.

A brilliant display from Mesut Ozil was integral as Arsenal won their 10th game in a row in all competitions.

The north London side are two points behind defending champions Manchester City, Chelsea FC and Liverpool FC in the Premier League table in what looks to be a competitive title race.

Leicester took the lead after Hector Bellerin diverted the ball into the back of his own net after a Ben Chilwell shot after half an hour. Still, Leicester proved pesky and almost put themselves back in front in the 58th minute as Wilfred Ndidi headed a corner straight into the crossbar.

Arsenal were struggling defensively and indeed in the final third, and a long-range strike from Alexandre Lacazette in the 26th minute never threatened to trouble Schmeichel. Falling behind to Leicester City, it fell to Mesut Ozil, the team's captain for the night, to dig them out of a hole.

Lacazette should have made it 4-1 in the 78th minute when he was presented with a low cross inside the Leicester box, but Schmeichel was on hand to make a fine save.

With games against Sporting Lisbon (Europa League), Crystal Palace (Premier League) and Blackpool (Carabao Cup) up next for Arsenal, attention will quickly turn to the arrival of Liverpool on November 3.
