Arsenal’s progression to the last 16 of the Europa League was a big moment for manager Mikel Arteta and his side, and it remains to be seen how much focus they will have on the remaining matches in the Premier League, considering their priorities lie elsewhere.
The Gunners face a Leicester side tomorrow who will be bruised after crashing out of Europe on Thursday night, but the Foxes are in good form domestically, having beaten Liverpool and Aston Villa in their last two matches.
In terms of team news, Arsenal have just one fitness concern heading into the match at the King Power Stadium, with Rob Holding a doubt due to a concussion he sustained in the defeat to Manchester City last weekend. Thomas Partey should be fit to start after coming on as a substitute against Benfica.
Arsenal’s Predicted XI To Play Leicester:
Leno, Cedric, Luiz, Mari, Tierney, Partey, Odegaard, Xhaka, Saka, Aubameyang, Smith Rowe
Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers currently has six players on the treatment table. Wesley Fofana is a doubt with a hamstring issue, while Ayoze Perez (knee), Dennis Praet (hamstring), James Justin (knee), West Morgan (back) and James Maddison (hip) are all out of contention.
Leicester’s Predicted XI:
Schmeichel, Ricardo, Evans, Soyuncu, Castagne, Tielemans, Ndidi, Choudhury, Albrighton, Vardy, Barnes
