Arsenal stretched their unbeaten run to nine games with an impressive victory at Leicester City.

Simon Collings was at the King Power Stadium to see the action...

Aaron Ramsdale 9 | Star man

Arsenal’s best player. Made a number of brilliant saves, namely his effort to keep out James Maddison’s free-kick just before half-time. Distribution was excellent too.

Takehiro Tomiyasu 8

Made a number of vital blocks and interceptions during a good performance. Has settled really well at Arsenal and looks the part.

Ben White 7

Marginally worse than his centre-back partner, but not by much. Looked so calm on the ball throughout and carried it well too.

Gabriel 8

Got on the scoresheet from a corner and was a rock in defence too. Forming a good partnership with White and is getting better on the ball too.

Nuno Tavares 8

Excellent again from the youngster, who is filling in for the injured Kieran Tierney with aplomb. Looks so dangerous when he bombs forward.

Albert Sambi Lokonga 7

Another good performance from the midfielder, who has bounced back from his tough game at Brighton at the start of this month.

Thomas Partey 8

Looks so much better playing in a midfield-two than on his own. Broke up play well and his passing was decent too.

Bukayo Saka 7

Setup the first goal and looked very lively early on. Faded a bit in the second-half and wasted some good openings.

Alexandre Lacazette 6

Did a solid job playing just off Aubameyang. Pressed well and had a hand in the second goal. Taken off just before the hour mark.

Emile Smith Rowe 8

Another great performance from the youngster, who is surely close to Gareth Southgate’s England squad. Scored again to make it four goals in seven games.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang 7

Looks better and more like himself with each game he plays. Led the line well and was denied a certain goal by a stunning Kasper Schmeichel save.

Substitutions

Martin Odegaard (Lacazette 58’) 6

Came on and showed the odd flash of brilliance. Faces a fight to get back into the team.

Nicolas Pepe (Saka 84’) N/A

Sead Kolasinac (Smith Rowe 89’) N/A

Subs not used: Leno, Holding, Cedric, Maitland-Niles, Elneny, Martinelli.
