ARSENAL continue their journey to potential Premier League success with a trip to the King Power where Leicester awaits.

The Gunners looked destined to drop more points against Aston Villa last weekend having trailed for large periods of the match.

But up stepped January signing Jorginho whose spectacular effort rebounded off Emi Martinez to give Arsenal the lead, before Martinelli sealed the deal late on.

And the Gunners’ Saturday got even better when Nottingham Forest held Manchester City to a draw courtesy of a late Chris Wood strike.

Now in the ascendancy, Mikel Arteta will be hoping his men can build on their momentum against a Leicester side who was recently humiliated by Manchester United.

However, the Foxes put four past Champions League chasing Tottenham the last time they played in front of their home crowd – and that was after going behind.

What is the team news?

Brendan Rodgers has no fresh injury concerns ahead of Leicester’s huge clash with Arsenal.

However, Jonny Evans and Ryan Bertrand are unlikely to feature, while James Justin is out for the season.

Elsewhere, Thomas Partey is a huge doubt for the Gunners having missed the last two Premier League fixtures following a sustained thigh problem.

Gabriel Jesus is inching closer to recovery, while Mohamed Elneny is set to miss the remainder of the campaign.

But the quartet of Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith Rowe, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Eddie Nketiah are all likely to be available despite missing out on Monday’s training session.
