Arsenal made it five wins in a row in the Premier League on Sunday as they beat Leicester City by two goals to nil at the Emirates Stadium.
Thomas Partey’s header gave Mikel Arteta’s side an early lead, before a contentious penalty decision following Caglar Soyuncu’s handball gave Alexander Lacazette the chance to make it 2-0 from the spot.
The Gunners have now won their last five league games as they returned to fourth place in the table.
And in another boost for Arteta, with the exception of the injured Takehiro Tomiyasu, he now has his entire squad fit and ready to compete for places in the starting XI.
Tomiyasu has been out of action for a few weeks now as a result of injuries to both his calves.
What Arteta said: “Tomiyasu we’re still assessing him because we’re taking some time to try to protect him and get him in the best and safest possible way.”
Emile Smith Rowe
Smith Rowe missed the Gunners’ wins over Wolves and Watford as a result of Covid-19.
The Hale End academy graduate has been in sublime form recently, netting nine Premier League goals, more than any other Arsenal player this term.
Luckily, he returned to action from the bench against Leicester and will be fit to face Jurgen Klopp’s reds this week after coming on as a substitute in the latter stages of the game.
