How Arsenal could line up against Leicester City

Sports Mole looks at how Arsenal could line up for Tuesday night's Premier League clash with Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal will be looking to make it five wins in a row across all competitions when they welcome Leicester City to the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday.

Mikel Arteta's side have returned to form in style in recent weeks, winning three successive league games without conceding to keep their hopes of European qualification alive.

However, they face a Leicester side that returned to winning ways themselves at the weekend, ensuring that they are still in pole position to claim one of the remaining available top-four spots.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how the Gunners could line up for the visit of the Foxes.

Possible ARS XI vs. LEI

Out: Nicolas Pepe (personal reasons), Mesut Ozil (back)
Doubtful: Bernd Leno (knee), Gabriel Martinelli (knee), Pablo Mari (ankle), Calum Chambers (knee)

Changes from the 2-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers could be few and far between considering the impressive nature of that result, with Arteta's 3-4-3 formation continuing to reap rewards.

One player who will be hopeful of breaking into the starting XI is Alexandre Lacazette after he came off the bench to score at Molineux, having once again missed out to Eddie Nketiah initially.

Arteta is also likely to have Nicolas Pepe back available after he missed the Wolves match due to his wife going into labour, although the club-record signing may not be able to dislodge Bukayo Saka from the starting lineup.

Mesut Ozil could also be available as he nears his comeback from a back injury, but the winning formation Arteta has found does not appear to lend itself too well to the German playmaker.

Hector Bellerin could come back into the team, but Bernd Leno, Gabriel Martinelli, Pablo Mari and Calum Chambers are all out for the remainder of the season.
