Predicted Arsenal lineup (4-3-3) to face Leicester City, Mavropanos and Ramsey start

Predicted Arsenal XI vs Leicester City

Arsenal will be searching for their first away point of 2018 when they take on Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday night. The north Londoners have enjoyed little success on the road this campaign and their away record is only better than four other top-flight teams.

Formation: 4-3-3


Petr Cech has been the regular pick for the Premier League duties this term and the veteran is likely to start in goal on Wednesday night. The shot-stopper kept just his second clean sheet of the calendar year against Burnley.

In defence, Hector Bellerin and Sead Kolasinac should continue in the right and left-back positions after their top-notch performances against Burnley and this could be the case at the heart of the backline.

Konstantinos Mavropanos have formed an impressive partnership alongside Calum Chambers in the central defensive position and they could pair up for the third consecutive league game.

In midfield, Granit Xhaka is likely to start having earned the most number of minutes than any Arsenal player this term. Alongside him, Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey are strong picks to feature.

Alex Iwobi capped off a good performance against Burnley with a goal but the youngster could make way for Ramsey, who offers more in a defensive point of view.

Moving ahead, Mesut Ozil has been sidelined for the campaign with a back injury and this should urge Wenger to go with last weekend's combination upfront.

As such, Alexandre Lacazette should lead the line as usual with Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang flanking him. Aubameyang netted two goals and assisted another during the 5-0 triumph over Burnley.
