I'd expect about 5+ goals in this one.

Arsenal's approach suits our style of play but they just always, always score and beat us at their place. Their attack just always has something about them to succeed. Aubameyang frightens me to be honest xD

Top 2 goalscorers in the league going head to head.

They've actually hit a bit of form as well after a very poor initial restart. Catching them at a quite bad time I feel.

I sadly think it'll be another narrow loss, like it normally always is, and for once can it just not be in the last 5 minutes?

I'd take a draw from this for sure - although we absolutely have to beat Bournemouth next weekend, despite that being another place we have a bad record they're just abysmal and there is no excuse.

Interesting to see how we cope with Leicester, Arteta is going to stick with 3 at the back I assume but Leicester will definitely be the best attacking team we have faced with it. I do think we should be going into this expecting to win.

We've just played three at the back ourselves for the first time in a while and you'd have to say it worked. We've been very stale going forward recently but the good thing for us is this fixture should suit us.

There should be a few goals in this to be honest.

Yeah I think the 1st goal will be massive, since going 3 at the back we haven't conceded first in any game so we've been able to set ourselves up to be more cautious. Even though you have lacked form, Vardy is especially dangerous and has an outstanding record against us, not to mention Kelechi has hit some form. 

Our defenders will always have a mistake in them as well so I see us conceding. Confidence is high though so we should be looking for a good result here.

It usually is with us - though for a bizarre stat our away game with you last year was the only time under Puel we went ahead and lost the game.

What's good for us, about Arsenal, is that you aren't really capable of the low block. That is irritatingly effective against us and has been for a while. I don't think you've got it in you to really do it, nor attempt it at home to us.

This should be a genuinely interesting game in my opinion. I'm intrigued to see how this pans out.

I am actually confident about this one, but only thing what would worry me if we change formation as the 5 3 2 has been good in the last 2 games.    

 

2-1 Arsenal.

Chilwell and Maddison out. Not sure how it goes with Maddison out again.

We struggle to put a few good results together. I think it's just the level we are at at the moment. So I think this will be a draw. 2.2

I'd imagine we will go...

Schmeichel

Bennett - Evans - Soyuncu

Justin - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Albrighton

Ndidi Tielemans

Perez

Iheanacho - Vardy

 

Apparently another left back from our academy is in the squad - Luke Thomas, quite highly rated.

Perez might not be fit so can see Tielemans there with Praet next to Ndidi.

As soon as it finally looked like we had Perez in a role that properly suits him as well.

Dont know about ruling out that Leicester goal.  Just a normal coming together if players.  Happy to see the call though.

Arsenal should be 3 up. Does anyone still think this Leicester team is better than their title winning side?!

Anyone saying things like that as early as November is a clown anyway.

Who even thought that anyway? 

This team finds it difficult to grind out wins when things don't go our way. That title side won when we didn't play well.

God knows how this is only 1-0. We played well for about 10 minutes but since the goal we've been battered. Schmeichel the only reason this isn't about 3-0.

Well, not the only reason, I'm still not totally convinced that Iheanacho goal was a foul. I'm not saying it wasn't, but I'm not convinced it was either, and it was all over and done with brushed under that carpet way too quickly for my liking - again. We need to get more aggressive in contesting for these things. Team of soft arses.

Pretty interesting half, Leicester started very well and Kelechi missed a fantastic chance, but we were the better team as soon as we scored. Brilliant goal from Auba and another superb assist for Saka, what a ridiculous talent that boy is. Sensational half by Ceballos as well, been pretty dire all season but has hit some top form in the last few games. Easily our best player today, wasn't keen on seeing him next season but if this keeps up maybe he would be worth investing in.

Looked a bit soft but both the ref and lino gave it as a foul, don't really know why Iheanacho engaged like that.
