Unai Emery’s starting line-up has been confirmed for today’s crucial game in Leicester, with Aubameyang back in the team following a sinus operation.
The Gabon international missed last week’s painful loss to Wolves, but returns today to try and close the gap on Spurs to only one point, and gain points on one or both of Chelsea and Man United who clash later on today.
At first sight of the team it looks like we will be playing 4-3-3 with Mkhitaryan being our most advanced midfielder of the three, but the personnel could well play as a 4-2-2-2, with Iwobi and Mkhi wide, and Xhaka alongside Torreira in front of the defence.

We haven’t been having much luck on the road of late, and today will not be the easiest task to try and change that (especially when you consider Jamie Vardy’s record against the top six), but we most definitely have the personnel for the task.
With the top four spot well within our sights we really cannot afford to not take today’s shot at the three points, and we really need this line-up to click today from the off.
Is this going to be a 4-3-3 with Mkhi in the middle? Is anybody expecting our boys to show the fight needed to come away with a dominant three points? Or is it squeaky bum time?
