Arsenal moved into the Premier League top four with a win that left bottom club Leicester City five points adrift of safety.

Mesut Ozil whipped in a corner for Laurent Koscielny to tap in from close range and later saw a shot saved, allowing Theo Walcott to volley home.

But the Foxes rallied as Andrej Kramaric scored a first goal in English football with a low second-half shot.

He was also denied late on by keeper David Ospina as the Gunners held on.
