After a slightly slow start to the season, Arsenal have a great chance to go into the international break just two points off the top of the Premier League with a win at newly promoted Leicester City. But Arsene Wenger still has a few injury concerns and a few selection issues to make.
The big team news is that the Frenchman has brought Yaya Sanogo back into the centre forward position to replace the injured Giroud, moving the Chile international Alexis Sanchez back out to the right. Wenger has also dropped Jack Wilshere and stuck with Santi Cazorla on the left, although Podolski, Campbell and Chamberlain are on the bench.
Debuchy, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal
Sanchez, Ozil, Cazorla
subs: Martinez, Chambers, Wilshere, Rosicky, Chamberlain, Campbell, Podolski
The bench looks a bit light defensively and I am surprised that Hector Bellerin is not on there, but the versatility of Chambers could be the reason for that. It looks like the Gunners are set up to control the ball and push Leicester back.
We certainly have the players to take all three points today, as long as we play to our strengths and do not let the home side get into their stride early on. Hopefully our young French striker can produce the sort of form that saw him score four goals against Benfica in pre-season and fire the Gunners above the spuds. COYG.
