Leicester

Arsenal

28 February 2021 13:00 CET Premier League King Power Stadium

All eyes will be on King Power Stadium when Leicester City and Arsenal take on each other in the Premier League round 26. 

The Foxes are enjoying yet another season to remember, with the team sitting in the third position in the standings. 

Brendan Rodgers’ men are on the right track to book their place in the Champions League, but they need to keep on impressing if they are to secure a top-four finish. 

Justin, Fofana, Perez, Praet, and Morgan remain sidelined with injuries, while Maddison should be fit to face Arsenal.

The Gunners, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Man City. 

Arsenal have been producing fine displays in 2021, and seeing that Aubameyang has found his goalscoring touch of late, both teams to score betting option should be considered. 

Thomas Partey should be the only absentee in the away side.

Team News:

Leicester will again be without the services of James Justin, James Maddison, Ayoze Perez, Wesley Fofana, Dennis Praet and Wes Morgan for this weekend's contest at the King Power Stadium.

The Foxes did not pick up any fresh concerns in the Europa League on Thursday, but Rodgers is expected to make changes from the clash with Slavia Prague.

Ricardo Pereira, Timothy Castagne and Harvey Barnes will all definitely be back in the side, while there could also be a position in the middle of the park for Nampalys Mendy, who replaced Maddison off the bench against Villa last weekend.

As for Arsenal, Rob Holding missed out against Benfica on Thursday due to the concussion protocols, but the centre-back is expected to be available for selection here.

The Gunners are otherwise at full strength in terms of their first-team squad, and it will be fascinating to see Arteta's thinking after the Europa League contest last time out.

Thomas Partey featured off the bench against Benfica and could now come into the XI, but Arteta is expected to resist the temptation to shuffle his pack, meaning that Willian and Alexandre Lacazette should remain on the bench, with Martin Odegaard and Emile Smith Rowe retaining their spots.

Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel; Ricardo, Evans, Soyuncu, Castagne; Albrighton, Tielemans, Ndidi, Mendy, Barnes; Vardy

Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Leno; Bellerin, Luiz, Gabriel, Tierney; Thomas, Xhaka; Saka, Odegaard, Smith Rowe; Aubameyang
