Arsenal FC at Leicester City Starting XI Predictions


Arsenal visits Leicester City on Saturday in the Premier League weekend’s second biggest match. Obviously, you know what’s #1, and it happens in Manchester the next day. The Gunners have really had an up and down season, with plenty of issues trying to get results on the road.

The north London side has drawn their last four across all competitions, but a stalemate might be something they would be happy about here. Leicester heads into this match surging, with a chance of ending the weekend in second place. A Leicester win and a City loss would make this scenario come to fruition.

Leicester have won their last three in the league, including that infamous 9-0 slaughtering of Southampton FC. Jamie Vardy is the Premier League’s top scorer, and he’ll go against an Arsenal back line that is as healthy and complete as they have been all season. So that should be an interesting match-up to watch.

With this all said, let’s take a look at who both bosses may start for this match.

Leicester City Starting XI Prediction: Schmeichel; Ricardo Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell; Ndidi; Ayoze Perez, Tielemans, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy

Arsenal FC Starting XI Prediction: Leno; Chambers, Sokratis, David Luiz, Tierney; Guendouzi; Torreira, Willock; Ozil; Lacazette, Aubameyang
