Arsenal will welcome Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon as they look to make it two wins on the spin in the Premier League. The Gunners managed to secure an impressive 2-0 derby victory over Crystal Palace earlier this month which will give them some momentum going into this home game.
Mikel Arteta will set his men up in a 4-3-3 formation and could name an unchanged team for this clash. Hence, we can once again expect to see Gabriel Jesus lead the charge for the North London club in the final third.
4-3-3 Arsenal Predicted Lineup To Face Leicester City
Aaron Ramsdale will feature in between the sticks for Arteta’s team after he secured a clean sheet against the Eagles in his last league appearance. Gabriel will once again play along with William Saliba at the centre of Arsenal’s backline as they try to restrict the Foxes from finding the back of the net during the game.
Ben White will fill in as a makeshift right-back yet again while Oleksandr Zinchenko hopes to impress on the other flank as the left-back. Arteta will give both of them the freedom to get forward and join in on the attack at every chance they get.
Kieran Tierney will be available for selection on the bench as he provides cover for the left-back position.
Arteta could choose to go with a midfield comprised of Granit Xhaka, Thomas Partey and Martin Odegaard for this clash at home.
Odegaard will be the one expected to create some decent chances for the Gunners in the attacking end of the field.
Mohamed Elneny and Albert Sambi Lokonga will have to be content with a place on the bench as they wait for their chance to impress in the second half if needed.
Gabriel Martinelli scored the first goal of this Premier League campaign. Hence, he will be nailed-on to start on the left flank. Bukayo Saka would try to put his pace to good use as the right-sided wide player.
Gabriel Jesus will spearhead Arsenal’s attack down the middle. The Brazilian striker produced an impressive display against Palace despite failing to score against them. However, he will be desperate to open his goal-scoring account for the Gunners this weekend.
Eddie Nketiah will have to settle for a spot on the bench but might come on to make an impact in the latter stages if required.
