The Gunners nearly broke the deadlock just before the halftime break as Sanchez rattled the crossbar with Kasper Schmeichel well beaten.
 
The Leicester goalkeeper was called upon once again in the 58th minute, as he pulled off a fine save to keep out Granit Xhaka's deflected effort.
 
With the hosts pushing for an opener, Arsene Wenger opted for a change after 68 minutes as Keiran Gibbs made way for Danny Welbeck.
 
Arsenal eventually broke the deadlock in the 86th minute when Nacho Monreal's volley deflected into the net off Robert Huth.
 
The Foxes pushed for an equaliser in the closing stages but were unable to bypass the Gunners defence, as the hosts held on for the win.
