Unai Emery’s side were against the ropes for the bulk of the first-half at the Emirates, with the Foxes putting in an excellent performance and taking the lead through a deflected Ben Chilwell effort on 31 minutes.
In truth, the Gunners struggled to create any clear-cut chances at all, but Ozil decided to take the bull by the horns on the stroke of half-time.
Captaining the North London club from the start of a Premier League fixture for the first time, Ozil started the move which led to his own cool deft finish, leaving the Leicester defence with absolutely no chance:
