It has even prompted coach Mikel Arteta to deploy Alexandre Lacazette alongside the Gabonese international in recent matches.

The Frenchman usually operates in a more withdrawn role, where he is usually utilised as a hold-up player who can create layoffs for runners like Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe in the final third.

Arsenal are a lot more disciplined in midfield and defence, though. They had rested a host of their key players in the midweek game as well, which means Thomas Partey will be starting this game, hoping to orchestrate the proceedings and put his box-to-box qualities to good use.

The former Atletico Madrid star is likely to be partnered with new signing Albert Sambi Lokonga, filling in for the injured Granit Xhaka. Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Mohamed Elneny are other options for Mikel Arteta.

As for the defence, Kieran Tierney appears to be a major doubt heading into this contest. The Scotland international has missed quite a few matches and midweek’s rest for Nuno Tavares indicates that the former Celtic starlet might not be fit to start against Leicester City either.
