Full Arsenal squad revealed for Leicester clash as Mikel Arteta faces Emile Smith Rowe decision

Arsenal play hosts to Leicester City on Sunday as the Gunners look to continue their good form in pursuit of a top four finish this season.

Mikel Arteta’s men have not lost in the league since New Year’s Day, putting together a run that has seen them jump up to fourth and in the driving seat for the final Champions League place.

A 3-2 win over Watford last time out capped an impressive attacking display, with Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli getting on the scoresheet, and Arteta’s side showing defensive frailty as the game became stretched.

As for Leicester, they picked up two much-needed wins in their last two, snuffing out any potential murmurings of a late relegation scrap.

The Foxes currently sit 12th, having struggled under Brendan Rodgers this season amid poor performances and key injuries throughout.

The reverse fixture ended in a 2-0 win for the Gunners at the King Power Stadium, where Gabriel and Emile Smith Rowe found the net early on.

A particular highlight of the game was a save from Aaron Ramsdale though. The England international stretched every sinew to deny James Maddison’s free-kick from finding the top corner.

With all that said, here’s a look at the squad Mikel Arteta has at his disposal.

Goalkeepers: Aaron Ramsdale, Bernd Leno.

Defenders: Cedric Soares, Kieran Tierney, Rob Holding, Ben White, Gabriel, Nuno Tavares.

Midfielders: Granit Xhaka, Mohamed Elneny, Thomas Partey, Martin Odegaard, Emile Smith Rowe, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Bukayo Saka.

Forwards: Alexandre Lacazette, Nicolas Pepe, Eddie Nketiah, Gabriel Martinelli.
