Arsenal team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Leicester City

Sports Mole rounds up Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Tuesday's Premier League clash with Leicester City.

Arsenal could win five games in a row for the first time since October 2018 when they welcome high-flying Leicester City to the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night.

Mikel Arteta's side produced a impressive 2-0 victory over fellow European hopefuls Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday to continue their good form following an initially slow start to life after lockdown.

Another win over the Foxes could lift them up to sixth in the table, although Leicester themselves returned to winning ways in style at the weekend as they attempt to cling on to a Champions League spot.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the Gunners' latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.
