Arsenal boost as Leicester City could miss two key players for tomorrow’s match

Arsenal has been handed a boost ahead of their match against Leicester City tomorrow, with the Foxes expected to be without two important players.

Ricardo Pereira and Ayoze Pérez could both miss the fixture as confirmed by Brendan Rodgers.

He told Leicester’s official website: “There’s maybe a question mark on Ricardo Pereira. 

“We’ll see how Ricardo is. He just felt a bit tight from the game the other night. Ayoze Pérez has had a bit of a bug so he was kept away today and we’ll see how he responds. Apart from that, all the players are fit and healthy and ready to go.”

These players might be important to Leicester, but the Foxes have one of the biggest squads in England and would have alternatives.

Arsenal cannot get carried away by this development and Mikel Arteta has to create a game plan that can earn us the three points regardless of who is playing.

Although Pereira and Perez would miss the game, Jamie Vardy, Kelechi Iheanacho, Patson Daka and James Maddison, among others would be a handful for Arsenal to deal with.

Playing against Leicester hasn’t been easy for us, but we have two wins from our last three matches against them.

This shows that Mikel Arteta knows how to get the better of the Foxes and he is yet to lose a game at the King Power Stadium since he became our manager.

    They aren’t key. Decent players but key would be Vardy, Schmeichel, Soyuncu, Evans or Tielemans. Nice try, a draw would be a good result. Don’t kid yourselves otherwise, 6th finish would be a decent season

    Let go there

    I’m expecting all 3 points, nothing more, nothing less,
    If our midfield turn up the way they did against Aston Villa, we should win by some margin.

      Leicester are coming into top form .. have won 4 in a row in all comps. You think will win comfortably. Good luck with that

    I think arteta needs to pair Abu and Alex. Drop pepe use saga on the wing and Smith on the left. Pair partey almond side emeny and white, holding, teveras on the left back and tu on the right. I thing this team can bring trouble to licester

    The main players for Leicester are Vardy, Evans, Tielemans, Madison and Daka. Arsenal will have to play very well to beat them.

    Let’s hope that the Referee dose not become their 12th player on the pitch.
    God help us.
