Mikel Arteta finally seems to have found the right formula and the key to success with Arsenal. After three inaugural defeats early in the season, the Gunners have since put together a seven-game winning streak in the Premier League. Despite two recent snags against Brighton and Crystal Palace, the partners of Alexandre Lacazette offered themselves the Leicester scalp on Saturday at the King Power Stadium (0-2).

Holder with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the former OL player did not manage to score his second goal of the campaign in the league but the big activity of the The tricolor international (16 caps) opened spaces in the heart of the Foxes defense where the absence of Wesley Fofana was still felt.

Much better in this shock of the tenth day of the Premier League, the London club quickly found the loophole. A corner placed by Bukayo Saka on the head of the former Lille native Gabriel launched the Gunners perfectly (0-1, 5th).

More incisive in the duels, the protectors of Mikel Arteta managed to double the bet in stride. Served in the area of ​​Leicester, Alexandre Lacazette did not manage to shoot but a favorable counter from the Frenchman got in the feet of Emile Smith-Rowe. The 21-year-old Englishman’s strike left no chance for Kasper Schmeichel perhaps a little less brilliant than usual (0-2, 18th).

Two goals ahead and nil. Having made the difference at the start of the game Arsenal almost stopped playing and left the Foxes in possession of the ball. A few minutes before halftime, Aaron Ramsdale put out an incredible save on a direct free kick from James Maddison. (0-2, 43rd).

Recruited for nearly 28 million euros during the last summer transfer window, the 23-year-old English goalkeeper has perfectly justified the investment of the London management.

By the way, the former Bournemouth and Sheffield United drew congratulations from Peter Schmeichel: “The most beautiful stop I have had in years”, said launched the former glory of Manchester United and incidentally father of Kasper Schmeichel, Leicester goalkeeper.

Despite clear domination by the Foxes, Arsenal held on and ended up finishing their fourth game of the season without conceding a Premier League goal. With five wins (and two draws) in the last seven league games, the Gunners are getting closer to qualifying places for the Champions League. Provisionally fifth in the standings, the London team was only beaten by West Ham in goal difference (-1 and 6 respectively) but played © one more match.

Better for the gang of Lacazette and Aumab ‘, the posters in Liverpool-Brighton and Tottenham-Manchester United (from 6.30 pm on RMC Sport 1) could well do the business of Londoners. The subject of mockery after his chaotic start to the season, the Gunners are clearly starting to scare people. His next opponents in the next three days (Watford, Liverpool and Newcastle) are warned. Arsenal are doing much better.
