Pepe And Bellerin In, Nketiah And Cedric Out: Arsenal’s Predicted Line Up To Face Leicester

After an excellent away win against Wolves on Saturday, Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta will be hoping for a similar level of performance versus Leicester this evening.

The Spaniard will probably try to keep changes to a minimum but with Cedric Soares having started at Molineux, and having played very little football in recent months, the Portuguese may well be dropped in favour of Hector Bellerin.

Kieran Tierney will likely continue as the other wing-back, with the same back three of Shkodran Mustafi, David Luiz and Sead Kolasinac that kept a clean sheet at the weekend.


Arteta singled out Dani Ceballos and Granit Xhaka for praise after the Wolves win so they are expected to keep their places in the starting line up, despite Joe Willock impressing off the bench with an assist.

Up front, with Nicolas Pepe returning to the squad, the Ivorian may well be given the nod to start ahead of Eddie Nketiah, with Bukayo Saka moving to the left and captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang playing through the centre.

Arsenal’s Predicted XI To Play Leicester:

Martinez, Bellerin, Mustafi, Luiz, Kolasinac, Tierney, Ceballos, Xhaka, Pepe, Aubameyang, Saka
