Predicted Arsenal lineup to face Leicester City

Arsenal make the trip to east Midlands to face Leicester City in tomorrow's early league kick-off.

The Gunners are currently just one point behind fourth-placed Chelsea in the standings and they face a must-win situation to keep up the pressure on the west London side, who face Manchester United later in the day.

Formation: 3-4-1-2

Predicted Lineup:

Bernd Leno was guilty of conceding a cheap goal in the recent 3-1 defeat at Wolves but barring this, he has been impressive in the club's shirt this year. He is expected to start between the sticks.

In the defence, Unai Emery may revert to a three-man backline from the off after witnessing Wolves take complete advantage of a two-man central defence in the first period in midweek.

Laurent Koscielny, Nacho Monreal and Sokratis should feature in this case with Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Sead Kolasinac ahead of them in the right and left wing-back roles respectively.

In the centre of the park, Granit Xhaka and Lucas Torreira remain the club's best resources available but Emery could consider replacing the latter with Matteo Guendouzi, who was lively and impressive in the second half against Wolves.

In the attack, Mesut Ozil remains the best creative player available when compared to the misfiring Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi and he is bound to start in the number 10 role.

Ahead of him, we are predicting Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette to feature together. Aubameyang missed the previous match due to a sinus procedure but should return to the fray for the Foxes trip.

Predicted Lineup (3-4-1-2) to face Leicester: Leno, Koscielny, Sokratis, Monreal, Maitland-Niles, Kolasinac, Xhaka, Guendouzi, Ozil, Aubameyang, Lacazette
