How Arsenal could line up against Leicester City

Ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash between Leicester City and Arsenal, Sports Mole looks at how Unai Emery's side could line up in the East Midlands.

Arsenal make the trip to the King Power Stadium to face Leicester City having put together a three-match winless streak in the Premier League.

Collecting just two points from games against Sheffield United, Crystal Palace and Wolverhampton Wanderers has left the Gunners in fifth position in the standings.

Having let slip leads in each of their last four fixtures in all competitions, manager Unai Emery is under increasing pressure to oversee a return to form as soon as possible.

Here, Sports Mole predicts how the North Londoners could line up for the showdown against the Foxes.

Doubtful: Granit Xhaka (other), Dani Ceballos (thigh)

Having already missed three matches due to his angry outburst towards supporters last month, it appears unlikely that Granit Xhaka will feature in the game in the East Midlands.

With Dani Ceballos also struggling with a thigh injury, Matteo Guendouzi and Lucas Torreira are expected to line up in midfield, with Mesut Ozil being used in front of them.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Nicolas Pepe are options down the right flank as Emery looks to find the right balance between defence and attack.

Hector Bellerin is in line to start his first Premier League fixture of the season after being left out of European action on Wednesday afternoon.

That should see Calum Chambers drop down to the substitutes' bench, although the Englishman may be considered as a replacement for Sokratis Papastathopoulos in the middle of the backline.
