Unai Emery would not entertain talk of Arsenal being title contenders after a seventh successive Premier League win lifted his team into the top four.
Ozil swapped passes with Bellerin to equalise before the break and was then instrumental in creating a quickfire brace for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in a five-minute spell after the forward’s introduction from the bench.
Emery, though, refused to get carried away when asked whether Arsenal can consider themselves contenders having beaten Leicester to record their longest winning run since 2007.
“We are also looking at the teams in front us like Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea.
“We were controlling the match and finding the chances to score. The first 30 minutes was a difficult moment.”
Ozil earned a standing ovation for his match-winning performance having justified Emery’s faith in making him one of five Arsenal captains.
“We have captains. He can play every match with his commitment with or without the armband.”
Nacho Monreal, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Sead Kolasinac all missed the Leicester win, meaning Stephan Lichtsteiner filled in at left-back and rookie Zech Medley was on the bench for the first time.
Midfielder Granit Xhaka then switched to left-back after Emery’s double-change saw Aubameyang and Matteo Guendouzi introduced for Lichtsteiner and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
“Sunday was a bad day for injuries,” Emery added. “Two in the same position like Sead and Nacho had a small problem. This morning they were not good to play.
