Team News:

Arsenal
Arsenal were without both Willian and Dani Ceballos for the midweek win over Rapid Vienna, but neither problem is thought to be serious and the summer arrivals are expected to be available for this match.

Rob Holding is unlikely to feature again until after the international break, though, having pulled out of the Man City lineup after suffering a hamstring injury in the warm-up.

Pablo Mari, Calum Chambers and Gabriel Martinelli also remain sidelined for the Gunners, who are set to welcome a number of first-teamers back into the starting XI after making changes for Thursday's game.

Aubameyang will be amongst them as he bids to end a four-game goalless streak in the top flight; he has not gone five league games without a goal since November 2014, when he was with Borussia Dortmund.

One player who is likely to keep his place from midweek is Thomas Partey, whose performance on his full debut led to immediate comparisons with Patrick Vieira from more than one club legend.
Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Leno; Bellerin, Luiz, Gabriel, Tierney; Ceballos, Thomas, Saka; Willian, Lacazette, Aubameyang

Leicester City
Leicester are optimistic that Vardy will be ready to return, which is bad news for Arsenal; the Golden Boot holder has scored 10 goals in as many Premier League starts against the Gunners - more than he has scored against any other opponent and a tally only Wayne Rooney can beat in Premier League history.

The Foxes will still be without some other key players, though, as Ricardo Pereira, Wilfred Ndidi, Caglar Soyuncu and Daniel Amartey all remain sidelined.

Maddison did manage 65 minutes on Thursday night, scoring in the process, and so he could be ready for his first Premier League start of the season.
Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel; Castagne, Fofana, Evans, Justin; Mendy; Perez, Praet, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy
Leicester City Premier League form: WWWLL
Leicester City form (all competitions): WLWLLW

Prediction: Arsenal 3-1 Leicester City
