Leicester City will welcome Arsenal at the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon as they hope to pick up a positive result on the road. The Foxes managed to secure a penalty shootout win over Brighton and Hove Albion in midweek, so they will be full of confidence ahead of this league clash at home.

Brendan Rodgers could opt for a 3-4-1-2 formation and is expected to make a whole host of changes to his first XI. Kelechi Iheanacho and Jamie Vardy could lead the line for the East Midlands outfit up top while Patson Daka has to settle for a spot on the bench.

Defence

Kasper Schmeichel will feature in goal for Leicester City after he shipped in one goal versus Brentford last weekend. The Foxes could lineup with a back three of Daniel Amartey, Jonny Evans and Caglar Soyuncu as they try to keep things solid defensively during the 90 minutes.

Jannik Vestergaard will be available for selection on Rodgers’ bench as he provides cover for the centre-back positions.

Midfield

Boubakary Soumaré and Youri Tielemans will function as the holding midfielders for Leicester City. Both of them will have to control the midfield battle and create some decent chances for their teammates up top.

Timothy Castagne will operate as the left wing-back while Ricardo Pereira fills in on the other flank as the right wing-back. James Maddison is expected to play as a free-flowing attacking midfielder down the middle.

Harvey Barnes will have to be content with a place on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the second half if needed.

Attack

Jamie Vardy will get the nod to lead the charge alongside Kelechi Iheanacho in the final third. Both Leicester forwards will be eager to produce a good attacking performance when they lace up to face off against the Gunners defenders this weekend.

Patson Daka will be named on the bench as he waits for his chance to shine in the second half if Rodgers decides to call upon his services.
