Predicted Arsenal line-up (4-2-3-1) vs Leicester today

Arsenal will be eyeing a fifth-straight Premier League win when they host Leicester City this evening.

The north London giants are presently two points behind Manchester United for the final Champions League spot, but have four games in hand.

They have a chance to leapfrog the Red Devils with another victory. The Gunners have not done a league double over the Foxes since 2015/16.

Predicted Line-up:

Aaron Ramsdale has not been at his best over the past few games, but remains an undisputed choice in goal over Bernd Leno. He will be eyeing his 12th clean sheet of the league campaign.

The defence should be identical to recent weeks. Takehiro Tomiyasu is still being assessed for a calf problem, and may not be rushed back to action. Cedric Soares, Ben White, Gabriel Magalhaes and Kieran Tierney are expected to make up the backline.

Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka have formed a solid partnership at the heart of the midfield. Partey has recently excelled from his defensive midfield role while Xhaka has been offered the license to play in a more advanced position. The duo are set to start.

Emile Smith Rowe is available for selection after overcoming coronavirus, but may not feature from the off. Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka are expected to slot into the wide attacking positions with Martin Odegaard retaining his number 10 spot.

Alexandre Lacazette has been short of goals this campaign, but has been impressive with his link-up play. He has netted just twice over the past 10 league games, but has made up for it with seven assists, two of those came at Watford last weekend.

Predicted Arsenal line-up (4-2-3-1): Ramsdale; Cedric, White, Gabriel, Tierney; Partey, Xhaka; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Lacazette.
