In all competitions, Emile Smith Rowe scored four goals in seven of his previous appearances for Arsenal.
Arsenal's recent revival continued with a comfortable win in the Premier League over Leicester City at King Power Stadium.
The hosts had a poor start and the visitors capitalized to take control of the early exchanges. They were awarded a two-goal advantage within 20 minutes.
Gabriel put the Gunners in the lead, climbing over several Leicester defenders to head into Bukayo Saka’s corner. Emile Smith Rowe took his place when the ball broke to him, after great work by Saka and Alexandre Lacazette.
Aaron Ramsdale, Arsenal's goalkeeper, also made several excellent saves. Mikel Arteta's side displayed defensive resolve to win a seventh league match without a loss.
They move up from 10th to 5th in the table, where they are level on points with West Ham fourth, prior to Saturday's other fixtures.
Leicester, who are still in mid-table, were disappointed.
Brendan Rodgers' team was cheered on by a large home crowd, but they struggled to find the right rhythm and poise to win successive victories over Brentford and Manchester United.
James Maddison's curling-free-kick just before break was an outstanding save by Ramsdale, but they couldn't get back in the contest despite significant improvements after the break.
Resilient Gunners impress
Arteta celebrates Ramsdale’s "great quality" in victory over Leicester
Arsenal have begun to look more like a well-oiled machine after starting the campaign with three consecutive defeats.
They have won five of seven matches and are now in the running for European places. Arteta is no longer under pressure.
The Gunners set a pace that hosts couldn't keep up with, setting the stage for a performance similar to the one against Aston Villa a week earlier.
Nuno Tavares charged forward at left-back, while Saka Smith Rowe, Thomas Partey and Thomas Partey controlled the midfield.
England's winger Saka was especially impressive, moving through the home defense in under two minutes to almost give Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang a chance and then contributing to both goals.
Leicester City 0-2 Arsenal : Leicester did exactly the opposite of game plan - Brendan Rodgers
Their Spanish boss will likely have been pleased by Arsenal's resilience, and Ramsdale is key to that.
Apart from denial Maddison, the ex-sheffield United player made an excellent save from Ademola Lookman, Foxes substitute - though credit should also be given to Ben White and Gabriel who made several important clearances as Leicester advanced.
Rodgers' team had all the momentum at the end of the interval, but Luke Thomas drove wide and Jamie Vardy's missed goal summed it up.
