Arsenal take on Leicester City at the Emirates tonight knowing we desperately need a win to boost our European ambitions.

Hector Bellerin is recalled to start on the right flank meaning Cedric Soares makes way and Alexandre Lacazette comes in for Eddie Nketiah up front after scoring off the bench against Wolves at the weekend.

Emi Martinez continues in goal in place of the injured Bernd Leno while Shkodran Mustafi keeps his place in the back three alongside David Luiz and Sead Kolasinac.

Granit Xhaka and Dani Ceballos are the midfield pairing once again with Lucas Torreira on the bench. There is still no Matteo Guendouzi or Mesut Ozil in the squad.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leads Arsenal out once again and Nicolas Pepe is back in the squad after missing Arsenal’s win over Wolves to be at the birth of his child. However, he’s on the bench tonight with Bukayo Saka keeping his place in attack.

These are the teams for the game:


Martinez; Mustafi, Luiz, Kolasinac; Bellerin, Ceballos, Xhaka, Tierney; Saka, Lacazette, Aubameyang

Subs: Papastathopoulos, Torreira, Maitland-Niles, Holding, Pepe, Nelson, Willock, Nketiah, Macey
