How Arsenal could line up against Leicester City

Sports Mole looks at how Arsenal could line up in Sunday's Premier League clash with Leicester City.

Arsenal will be looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they continue their domestic campaign away to Leicester City on Sunday afternoon.

The Gunners will enter the contest off the back of a 3-2 win over Benfica in the Europa League, which saw them advance to the last-16 stage of the competition.

Mikel Arteta's side have lost three of their last four in the Premier League, though, and currently sit down in 11th position in the table, some 11 points behind fourth-placed West Ham United.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Arsenal could line up at the King Power Stadium.

Doubtful: Rob Holding (concussion)

Arsenal were unable to call upon Rob Holding on Thursday due to the protocols surrounding concussion, but the centre-back is expected to be available for Sunday's contest.

Arteta will not take any risks when it comes to the defender, though, meaning that Gabriel Magalhaes and David Luiz could retain their positions in the heart of the back four, with Pablo Mari potentially on the bench.

There are not expected to be too many changes from the side that started on Thursday, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard likely to again feature in the attacking areas.

Emile Smith Rowe should keep out Nicolas Pepe on the left, while Willian and Alexandre Lacazette are again set to start on the bench for the Gunners.

There could be a change in the middle of the park, though, with fit-again Thomas Partey replacing Dani Ceballos to feature alongside Granit Xhaka.
