Arsenal v Leicester – Confirmed Team News & Predicted Line-up

Arsenal will look to make it two wins from two when they take on Leicester City later on today, and have a near-full squad of options available for selection.

We were without Takehiro Tomiyasu, Fabio Vieira and Emile Smith Rowe from our playing squad from our squad for the win over Crystal Palace last week, but all three are likely to take up a place on the bench after Arsenal Media confirmed they had all returned to full training this week.

ESR isn’t believed to be back to full fitness despite being back training with the rest of the squad however, while Tierney could well be in contention to start after coming off the bench for the last 20 minutes of our most recent outing.

Predicted Arsenal XI:

White Saliba Gabriel Zinchenko
Partey Xhaka
Saka Odegaard Martinelli

As much as Vieira, Tomiyasu and Tierney are supposed to be ready and raring to go, I don’t expect any to come straight back into the team. If I had to pick one change from last week, it would likely be one of the full-backs, and I would expect Tierney to be the most likely to start, but both have missed a lot of football since the turn of the year and will likely be given time, so I’m expecting an unchanged teamsheet.

This team should have more than enough to deal with Leicester, who have only added likely-third choice goalkeeper Danny Smithies to their squad since the summer transfer window opened.

  1. We go again! It’s the premier League so I know nothing can be taken for granted but I’m really hoping , expecting really, a statement performance here. Think the crowd will be immense today, there is a cautious sense of optimism/excitement spreading amongst the majority of fans and that will lead to a intimidating at atmosphere for Leicester.

      1. I’d even have Nelsons column in for Xhaka . Always in right place even taller and stronger than Xhaka. Also just as mobile and no slower.

  2. I think it will either be an unchanged team or possibly Tierney at left back with Zinchenko coming on, where and if, necessary.

  3. Yes another win and no dramas is the order of the day. Leicester seem to be in a state of flux at the moment and we are not. 2-0 minimum.

  4. I think that’ll be great I predict 3_1 in favor of arsenal but we need to Fabio veira performance today even if 20minutes

  5. Why fix that which is not broken.

    Happy at the speed the gaffer learning on the job, so all armchair managers advise will fall squarely on deaf ears.

    Hit em hard big gun
