Arsenal target Fifth Straight Win Against Leicester City

Arsenal host Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday evening, with the Gunners hoping to make it five wins in a row in all competitions.

Mikel Arteta’s side have been buoyed by their recent victory over Champions League hopefuls Wolverhampton Wanderers, while their 2-1 victory over Sheffield United last week saw them through to the FA Cup semi-finals.

As for the Foxes, their wretched run of form of late came to an end with a much-needed 3-0 home triumph over Crystal Palace, a game which saw forward Jamie Vardy reach a milestone of 100 Premier League goals.

The visitors’ recent form has somewhat opened the door for the chasing pack below them, yet a victory – and a league double – over the Gunners would go a long way to stabilising their European prospects.

Arsenal will perhaps be keen to field a similar starting XI to the one which conquered Wolves, although Alexandre Lacazette could earn a recall after his goal from off the bench on Saturday.
As for absentees, the Gunners will again be without Calum Chambers, Bernd Leno, Pablo Mari, and Gabriel Martinelli, while Mesut Ozil is likely to continue his spell on the sidelines – although Nicolas Pepe should be back after missing Saturday’s game when his wife went into labour.
As for the away side, Brendan Rodgers has a few issues to contend with following their victory over Palace at the weekend.
Defender Ben Chilwell was forced off at half-time with an Achilles issue, while midfielder Ayoze Perez was also substituted after receiving a knock to his ankle. One other major doubt for Tuesday’s fixture will be James Maddison, who sat out the clash with the Eagles due to a continued hip problem.
