The Gunners knocked their rivals Tottenham out of the League Cup on Wednesday and backed it up with a five-star performance against Leicester City in the league game. Alexis Sanchez found the net thrice and gave Arsenal all 3 points from this fixture.
Here are the player ratings for the game.
K Schmeichel (2.5): Should have done better to stop Alexis from scoring his second. Was solid in general.
R Huth (1.5): Was overrun by Walcott on the flank. Could not provide enough shield at the wings.
R de Laet (2.5): Stood tall most game but showed his weakness when dragged wide by the likes of Sanchez.
W Morgan (2): Tried hard to put pressure on Arsenal but was not able to stop them from scoring.
M Albrighton (2.5): Was a handful for the Arsenal defense on the left but faded away as the game progressed.
D Drinkwater (3): Smart with the ball and in defense. Shielded the back four to a certain extent.
N Kante (2): Was full of ideas at the beginning of the game but like his teammates, couldn’t produce much later in the game.
J Vardy (4): The best player on the field for Leicester. Scored twice on the day and was full of energy for the whole match.
J Schlupp (2.5): Was impressive at times in attack but did not do enough to stop the visitors from scoring their second.
S Okazaki (1.5): Not very impressive in partnership with Vardy. Rightly taken off at half time.
R Mahrez (2): Bright as usual but was dwelling on the ball for too long which frustrated the home fans. Not his best game in Leicester shirt.
A King (2.5)
A Karamaric (2.5)
L Ulloa (2)
P Cech (3): Was commanding in his box and pulled out a fine save to deny Schlupp in the first half.
L Koscielny (3.5): Always alert to the situation and never allowed any space to the home team.
H Bellerin (3): Another solid display on the flank on both end of the field.
N Monreal (3.5): A good game for him as he provided great stability at the back against the likes of Mehrez.
P Mertesacker (2.5): Was solid on the whole but was exposed at times when dragged out wide.
M Flamini (2.5): Did not affect the game much before being subbed off due to an injury in the 21st minute.
M Ozil (3.5): Showed glimpses of his previous best and also controlled the tempo of the game up front.
S Cazorla (4): Was a livewire in the mid-field and took the game to the home side from the deep in the second half.
A Ramsey (2.5): Played out on the right and could not affect the game as he would have liked.
T Walcott (3.5): Picked up a goal with a sublime run and also troubled the Leicester defense all throughout the game.
A Sanchez (4.5): A stunning display from the Chilean as he scored his first league goal and two more. One of the best nights in an Arsenal shirt.
Arteta (2.5): Replaced Flamini in the 21st minute and stuck to his task till the end.
A Oxlade Chamberlain (3): Made some mazy runs against tired Leicester defence.
O Giroud (3): Got himself a goal with a great effort in extra time.
