Arsenal will look to build on their League Cup win over Spurs when they take on Leicester on Saturday afternoon. Here is the side Gooner Mac thinks Arsene Wenger will select for the game:

Goalkeeper: David Ospina filled-in against Tottenham but I fully expect Petr Cech to be restored in goal after being rested for League Cup duties.

Defence: Arsene is likely to recall a number of first team regulars with Hector Bellerin coming back in for Mathieu Debuchy at right-back after the Frenchman struggled against Spurs.

Nacho Monreal and Laurent Kosicelny should also get recalls but Per Mertesacker could retain his place at the back as Gabriel is likely to be hit by at least a one-game ban when the FA rule on his improper conduct charge this evening.

Midfield: Francis Coquelin is a major doubt with a knee injury that he picked up against Chelsea last week and if he misses out once again this weekend, then Mathieu Flamini could keep his place in midfield after his heroics against Spurs.

Santi Cazorla is back from suspension so the Spaniard should return to his role in the middle of the park.

Attack: After a brief stint in the No.10 role, Aaron Ramsey is likely to move back to the wing against Leicester with Mesut Ozil returning to the starting eleven after being rested last night.

Alexis Sanchez will also come back in to the side while I think Theo Walcott is likely to start ahead of Olivier Giroud up front.

Here is how I think we’ll see Arsenal line-up:
