Four Leicester City players Arsenal must stop

Leicester City are on the same sort of level as Wolves, Watford and Everton, three teams that have given us a torrid time over the last few weeks and like those three teams they are fighting to finish in the seventh position and a likely Europa League spot.

The Foxes are one of those teams that do not possess what one would categorise as a world-class player but they do have players that are more than capable of putting us to the sword if we do not get to grips with them

For starters, we need to control the midfield and that means controlling Wilfred Ndidi, he frustrates the opposition in the same way N’golo Kante used to do, his proficiency in thwarting attacks and quickly passing the ball on can be extremely dangerous if he is not checked.

Then there is Youri Tielemans, a beautiful passer of the ball when he is in the mood, he has vision and bags of creativity and to some extent is a reminder of Riyad Mahrez and we know what he was capable of doing to the opposition when given the opportunity. Tielemans has that same potent ability.

James Maddison is creativity personified, just do a quick search on Google to see how many clubs are rumoured to be interested in his services, in fact, we have been urged to sign him as a replacement for Aaron Ramsey and there is a reason for that, he is damn good and if we give him an inch he will take full advantage.

Finally, Jamie Vardy and we know what he can do. The former England international loves to sit on the final defender waiting for that through ball so he can use his pace and our defenders are not exactly speed merchants.

We will have to guard Vardy intelligently if we don’t then do not be surprised to see his name on the score sheet.

Leicester City also has a top quality keeper, good defenders in Chilwell, Maguire and Evans and a manager that has had a flying start to his tenure with the former Premier League Champions.

Tomorrow is not going to be easy but if the players do their jobs and nullify the potential dangers then there is no reason why we cannot feel confident about collecting all three points.
