Arsenal vs Leicester Preview, Line up and predicted score by KJ
The players have to recover from that poor result in the derby and there’s no better fixture to restart the winning streak than against the worst team in the division – who’s manager is expected to be sacked if his team loses against us.
I feel the Tottenham result was a blip. It wasn’t down to bad management but down to the fact that we scored too early. The players believed they were playing well when they weren’t and we never recovered. This won’t happen against a team such as Leicester and we should really put them to the sword.
I expect us to play differently to the game against Villa as Pearson will surely not be stupid enough to play a high line against us at the Emirates. Keeping possession and using it properly will be an important aspect of the game,meaning the likes of Santi and Ozil should really be at the forefront of our attacks.
Predicted line up:
Bellerin – Mertesacker – Gabriel – Gibbs
Coquelin – Ramsey
Walcott – Cazorla – Ozil
Wenger might give the nod to Szczesny now with the poor performance by Ospina over the weekend.
I can see Gabriel having his debut at the Emirates with Koscielny unlikely to start 2 games in 3 days.
The rest of the team stays largely the same with Walcott and Gibbs coming in for Welbeck and Monreal.
I expect big games from our midfielders as they were very poor against Tottenham and allowed them to constantly apply pressure on us. They will hopefully go out there with something to prove and will all give good performances.
I expect us to win this fairly comfortably, 3 -0.
