Leicester vs Arsenal | Confirmed Team News | How To Watch | Predicted Score

Arsene Wenger will take charge of his penultimate game when he takes his Arsenal side to the King Power to face Leicester City this evening.

The Frenchman signed-off in style at the Emirates Stadium after winning his final home game with a 5-0 thrashing of Burnley on Sunday afternoon.

The victory means we’re guaranteed to finish sixth in the Premier League table this season as we’re now six points clear of Burnley and Sean Dyche’s men have just one game remaining while we can’t catch fifth-placed Chelsea.

Sadly Wenger won’t get the fairy-tale send-off he wanted after we were dumped out of the Europa League by Atletico Madrid last week but hopefully the players still want to end the season on a positive note.

Leicester come in to the game sitting 9th in the table on 44 points but boss Claude Puel is still under pressure after winning just four of his last 19 league games in charge.

Team news

Laurent Koscielny has been ruled out for at least six months after undergoing surgery on a ruptured Achilles while Mohamed Elneny will once again miss out with an ankle problem.

Wenger insists Mesut Ozil’s back injury is genuine and will keep the German playmaker out of our last two games and Santi Cazorla will also not feature despite stepping-up his return from a long-term Achilles injury.

Leicester have a lengthy injury list as Kasper Schmeichel (ankle), Shinji Okazaki (ankle), Wilfred Ndidi (hamstring), Danny Simpson (groin), Robert Huth (ankle) and Matty James (Achilles) are all out.

Predicted Score

Leicester 1-2 Arsenal: Our away record has been horrendous as we’re yet to pick up a point on the road in 2018. However, we have an excellent record against Leicester as we’re unbeaten in our last 22 meetings [W17 D7] so if we’re going to end that run, surely it will happen tonight? I think Arsenal are going to nick it 2-1.
