MATCH PREVIEW:


Six points separate Arsenal and Leicester City on the points table and while there is a long time to go before the league heads into do-or-die encounters, the Gunners will want to look past the shoddy finishes to make inroads into the top half of the table.

This clash is also one of contrasting scenarios in the coaching department. Emery is under pressure to perform with team morale at an obvious low, while Brendan Rogers is carrying the team forward - boosted by a string of good performances.



Arsenal has been in the news this past week but for reasons it would not be pleased about. Granit Xhaka has been stripped of the captaincy with the armband now with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Mesut Ozil has managed starts for the Gunners and has been a clinical playmaker in the last few matches for the side. Considering Dani Ceballos will sit out this game thanks to a hamstring strain, Xhaka or Ozil could be among the players Emery turns to for some innovation in the box and to convert good starts and add to the scoreline.

Arsenal's last three big ticket English fixtures have not yielded wins for the side and the Gunners will look to change that this weekend.
