Two sides who both still have Champions League aspirations meet at the Emirates Stadium.
Two sides who both still have Champions League aspirations meet at the Emirates Stadium as Arsenal look to build on their recent good form, although it’s the Foxes who will feel more confident coming off the back of a 3-0 drumming of Crystal Palace at the weekend.
Arsenal meanwhile will be buoyed by their recent form with four wins from four – having returned to Premier League action with disappointing back to back defeats to Manchester City and Brighton.
The game sees two strikers both gunning for the Golden Boot going head to head. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has 19 goals to his name whilst England striker Jamie Vardy has an impressive 21 – having also notched up his 100th Premier League at the weekend in the aforementioned win over Palace.
Arsenal will want to field a similar line up to the team that beat Wolves at the weekend with perhaps Alexandre Lacazette earning a re-call from the bench to the starting XI. They’re options to make changes are somewhat limited with Calum Chambers, Bernd Leno, Pablo Mari and Gabriel Martinelli all still out whilst Mesut Ozil is odds on to continue his spell on the sidelines.
Brendan Rodgers meanwhile will have to cope without Ben Chilwell, who picked up an Achilles injury at Crystal Palace whilst Ayoze Perez is also a doubt with an ankle problem picked up in the same game. With James Maddison also still a double the are certainly a few key players absent for the Foxes.
Kick-off at 8:15.
