Arsenal will be looking to bounce back from the Premier League loss last weekend against Manchester City with a performance against another side who finished above them last season, Leicester.

Mikel Arteta's charges were narrowly defeated 1-0 by Man City last weekend, before they recorded a win in their opening Europa League match of the season against Rapid Vienna midweek.

Thomas Partey 'fantastic' on first Arsenal start, says Arteta

Both Willian and Dani Ceballos were unavailable for the match in Europe, but both are expected to be in contention to feature in some way against the Foxes.

Arteta will probably stick to his usual back three, which basically picks itself due to the current injuries the team has.

Rob Holding, Pablo Mari, and Calum Chambers are all missing which means a likely defence of Gabriel, David Luiz, and Kieran Tierney.

New signing Thomas Partey made his first start for the club during the week and shone, meaning he will likely make his first Premier League start against Leicester.
