    Premier League LIVE! Leicester v Arsenal

    Probable Lineups…

    Leicester City (4-4-2): Schmeichel, de Laet, Morgan, Moore, Konchesky, Mahrez, King, Hammond, Schlupp, Ulloa, Nugent

    Leicester City continue their tough start to the Premier League campaign after already facing Everton on opening day as well as Chelsea in the previous week. Nigel Pearson is likely to not make any changes to his side, keeping the same formation as the one used against the Blues last weekend. Daniel Drinkwater, Matthew James, and Jamie Vardy are still a doubt for the match, but could yet make an appearance if deemed fit enough. However, Matthew Upson will not play a part in this match as he is out with an injury. Marc Albrighton recently returned to full fitness and could still make a appearance, most probably as a late substitute.

    Arsenal (): Szczesny, Debuchy, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Flamini, Cazorla, Wilshere, Ramsey, Ozil, Sanchez

    One of the main concerns for Arsene Wenger is the long term injury suffered by front man Olivier Giroud, who is likely to miss out until January next year. New signing Alexis Sanchez looks to be given the nod to once again play as an all and all out striker after impressing in the Champions League qualification match. Elsewhere, there are injuries to David Ospina, Serge Gnarby, Mikel Arteta, Kieran Gibbs, and Theo Walcott. Depth doesn’t seem to be a problem for Wenger this time around as defensive pairing Per Mertesacker and Laurent Kosceilny are expected to start while instant hit Calum Chambers is likely to start on the bench.

    What the fans are saying…

    Remember this?

    Back in the 2003-2004 season, Leicester City came close to ending Arsenal’s unbeaten run in the final game of the season by notching the games first goal. However, Arsenal, who haven’t lost a game throughout their league campaign weren’t going to let it happen as they overcame the 1-0 deficit to finish the match 2-1, eventually winning them the title without recording a single defeat all year.

    Stats to get your head around…

    Leicester won their first Premier League home game against Arsenal (2-1 in November 1994) but none of the subsequent seven games saw them claim three points.

    The last time Arsenal played Leicester was the 38th and final game of the unbeaten 2003-04 Premier League campaign.

    Leicester's players to have featured so far have a combined total of 550 Premier League appearances, fewer than any other team this season.

    Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez has conceded more fouls (7) without getting booked than any other Premier League player this season.

    Arsenal have only won three of their last nine Premier League away games (D2 L4).

    Injured hitman Olivier Giroud has been involved in 25 goals since the start of last season, level with Manchester City's Sergio Aguero.

    Mesut Ozil has assisted only one goal in his last nine Premier League games.

    David Nugent has not scored a Premier League goal since playing for Burnley in 2009-10. His last effort came in March 2010.

    Leicester have scored at least once in each of their last 16 league games at home.

    Arsenal have scored at least two goals in their last three Premier League away games.
