Some wretched recent performances have put Arsenal manager Unai Emery under huge pressure going into a tough game against Leicester City on Saturday evening.
Brendan Rodgers’ side are flying at the moment, having only lost twice in the Premier League this season and heading into the match this weekend in third place following a run of three consecutive wins.
The Gunners have one injury concern for the game at the King Power Stadium. Dani Ceballos went off with a thigh injury ten minutes into the second half of the 1-1 draw versus Vitoria last night.
Emery said afterwards that he thinks it is only a minor problem but he is a major doubt to face the Foxes. Granit Xhaka has still not returned to the matchday squad, and after losing the captaincy, it remains to be seen if he will return to the first team.
Leicester only have one player out of action, with Matthew James continuing to struggle with a long-term Achilles injury.
The bookmakers have made the Foxes the favourites to come away with the three points. They are 11/10 at Betfair to get the win with a draw currently 14/5 with Sky Bet. An Arsenal victory is 13/5 at Unibet.
Predicted Score – 2-1 to Leicester
