Arsenal will entertain Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday evening as they look to earn maximum points at home. The Gunners managed to secure a 3-2 victory over Watford in the Premier League last weekend, which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this game.
Mikel Arteta will stick with his favoured 4-2-3-1 formation and name an unchanged starting XI for this game. Hence, we can expect Alexandre Lacazette to once again lead the line for the Gunners up top.
4-2-3-1 Arsenal Predicted Lineup To Face Leicester City
Aaron Ramsdale will feature in goal for the North London outfit after shipping in a couple of goals versus the Hornets last weekend.
Gabriel will resume his defensive partnership with Ben White at the heart of Arsenal’s backline as they look to keep a clean sheet at the back this weekend.
Cedric Soares will fill in at right-back while Kieran Tierney looks to give a good account of himself as the left-back. Both of them will be given the freedom to express themselves in the opposition half.
Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey will anchor the midfield for the Gunners as they focus on winning the 50-50 battles at the centre of the park and feed some decent through balls to the front players.
The talented trio of Gabriel Martinelli, Martin Odegaard and Bukayo Saka will operate just ahead of them as part of Arteta’s attack. All three of them managed to get their names on the scoresheet versus Watford, so their confidence will be sky-high ahead of this weekend’s showdown versus the Foxes at the Emirates.
Nicolas Pepe will be available for selection on the bench as he waits for his chance to shine in the second half if needed.
Alexandre Lacazette will lead the charge for Arsenal up top. The French striker will be eager to find the back of the net so that he can gain some confidence and help the Gunners push for a top-four place this season.
Eddie Nketiah will have to settle for a place on the bench and might come on in the latter stages of the match if Arsenal are in need of a goal by then.
