Tierney And Xhaka Return, Partey To Start | Predicted 4-3-3 Arsenal Lineup Vs Leicester City

Mikel Arteta’s side will be looking to bounce to winning form in the Premier League when they take on Leicester City at Emirates stadium on Saturday evening.

The Gunners suffered narrowly 1-0 defeat to Manchester City in their last league game but did secure a win over Rapid Wien in the midweek Uefa Europa League clash.

So Mikel Arteta’s side will looking to continue their momentum heading into this clash against Leicester City.

Ahead of their latest fixture Mikel Arteta without only four first-team player, with the likes of Calum Chambers, Rob Holding, Pablo Mari and Gabriel Martinelli out on the sidelines but Dani Ceballos is expected to return to action while Willian is reportedly doubt for this clash.

Arsenal have taken to the field mostly with a 4-man back-line. But, Mikel Arteta could deploy a 3-man back-line to counter the direct threat of Jamie Vardy & co. Bernd Leno should have summer signing Gabriel Magalhaes for sure, with David Luiz likely to also start at the back-line.

Kieran Tierney did well as a left central defender earlier and could be preferred over other options. This would allow Mikel Arteta to use Ainsley Maitland-Niles in a more advanced position out wide, with Hector Bellerin the other wing-back.

Dani Ceballos is expected to start from the bench, means Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka is guaranteed to be the midfield pivot.

Nicolas Pepe will be expected to step up and stake his claim on a starting berth, with Willian doubtful. Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are likely to complete the starting XI.

Probable Lineup (4-4-3):Leno; Luiz, Gabriel, Tierney; Bellerin, Partey, Xhaka, Maitland-Niles; Pepe, Lacazette, Aubameyang
