Predicted Arsenal line-up (4-2-3-1) vs Leicester City, Martinelli returns
Arsenal will be aiming for a second-straight Premier League win when they face Leicester City on the road this afternoon.
The Gunners recently secured an impressive 4-2 comeback triumph at Aston Villa. They are currently two points ahead of Manchester City at the top of the table with a game in hand.
Aaron Ramsdale has played every minute of the top-flight campaign for the Gunners and he is expected to continue in goal. The England star made two crucial saves before the Gunners' late win at Villa Park.
In defence, it should be the familiar backline of Ben White, William Saliba, Gabriel Magalhaes and Oleksandr Zinchenko. Zinchenko gave away possession for Villa's first goal but made amends with a equaliser.
Thomas Partey could make the squad after his muscle injury but we are still backing Jorginho to start in the number six role. The Italian should be partnered by Granit Xhaka, who has been ever-present in midfield.
Further forward, a solitary change could be on the cards. Leandro Trossard barely made an impact on the left wing at Villa Park. He was replaced by Gabriel Martinelli, who put the game to bed with the fourth goal.
We expect Martinelli to be reinstated into the starting XI. Martin Odegaard will start in his customary number 10 role with Bukayo Saka on the right wing. Eddie Nketiah is expected to lead the attack once again.
Predicted Arsenal line-up (4-2-3-1): Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Jorginho, Xhaka; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Nketiah.
