Alexis scored a brilliant hat-trick as Arsenal claimed a well-deserved victory against Leicester at King Power Stadium on Saturday.
The Chilean international had not scored from 31 shots on goal this season prior to kick off, but returned to form in thrilling fashion during a frenetic affair.
The match got off to an electric start, with Santi Cazorla, Jeffrey Schlupp and Jamie Vardy all going close in quick succession, before the latter gave the hosts the lead on the counter.
But back came Arsenal and within five minutes they had their equaliser, Cazorla releasing Theo Walcott through the middle, and the England striker slotted home confidently with his left foot.


It was quite a game, the action zipping from end to end at a breathless pace but the Gunners took charge of the game just after the half-hour mark when Alexis fired in his first of the season from close range.
The second half did not have quite the same pace as the first, but the visitors remained in control and extended their advantage when Alexis nodded home from a lovely Mesut Ozil pass.
Still Arsène Wenger’s side came at Leicester, with Walcott, Ramsey and then Ozil coming close to adding a fourth goal.
Finally it came 10 minutes from the end when Alexis smashed home a fierce drive to seal a brilliant individual performance.
There was still time for Vardy to score his second of the game, but Olivier Giroud added a fifth right at the death as Arsenal claimed a victory that sends them up to third in the table.
