Arsenal travel to the King Power Stadium for their Premier League clash with Leicester City in this weekend’s Saturday lunchtime kick off.
The Gunners go to Brendan Rodgers’ side in fine form having secured their passage to the quarter finals of the Carabao Cup with a comfortable victory against Leeds in midweek.
The game was the eighth on an unbeaten run for Mikel Arteta’s side that stretches back to the end of their awful start to the season which saw them bottom of the table going into the first international break.
The Spaniard has been able to pick a relatively settled line up in his games so far but with a few injury and illness doubts that may not be the case this time around.
Team news, stats and prediction ahead of Leicester vs Arsenal in the Premier League on Saturday; kick-off 12.30pm.
Jamie Vardy will be back in the Leicester squad when they resume their Premier League campaign against Arsenal.
The striker sat out the Carabao Cup win against Brighton after he was taken off as a precaution at Brentford due to a knee problem.
Mikel Arteta says he’s fully focused on his work at Arsenal, following reports linking him with the Barcelona job.
Ricardo Pereira and Ayoze Perez will be assessed. Pereira experienced some tightness after the game in midweek while Perez has been ill.
