Mikel Arteta’s side are desperate to finish this season in the top four and they look well-suited to do so with new signings Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko.

Leicester looked like they were well on their way to a win in their clash with Brentford at the weekend.

But the Bees came from 2-0 down to finish the contest 2-2 in an entertaining game at the King Power.

Brendan Rodgers will be hoping his side can avoid dropping points in their second game, but Arsenal look to be on red hot form.
