Three ways Arsenal can lineup vs Leicester as Mikel Arteta makes Alexandre Lacazette decision

Arsenal news: The Gunners are looking to consolidate fourth-place in the Premier League when they host Leicester at the Emirates

Mikel Arteta will be hoping his Arsenal side can continue their good form when Leicester make the trip down to the Emirates on Sunday.

The Gunners are fresh off the back of a 3-2 win over Watford last time out, which saw them jump up to fourth in the Premier League over Manchester United.

Goals from Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli capped off a devastating attacking display, however a late Moussa Sissoko goal made the game far more tense than it had to be.

The win continued a fine run of form for the side, who haven’t lost in the league since New Year’s Day.

As for Leicester, they have picked up two huge wins in their last two games to steer clear of any discussion in the relegation battle.

The Foxes have struggled this season under Brendan Rodgers, though injuries have hit the club hard.

With that being said, here’s a look at how Arsenal could lineup for the game.

As the saying goes, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. The side that played against Watford put on some of the best attacking football that the Gunners have shown under Mikel Arteta this season.

The front four worked well in tandem and the chemistry is starting to show between all of them. The duo of Odegaard and Saka has proven highly useful too.

Emile Smith Rowe could come back after a spell on the sidelines to help the side once again.

While it may be tough to find where he would fit in the side, given the form of the front four, he would most likely start on the left.

He has played some of his best football in that position this season and given the chemistry between Odegaard and Saka, he would be unlikely to break that up by playing as a ten.

Whether he will be fit enough to warrant a start remains to be seen too.

A change up front

Alexandre Lacazette has been in good form, despite not being amongst the goals.

The forward has often played with his back to goal, drawing in defenders and creating space or chances for others.

However, Arteta has previously alluded to using other players as a centre-forward in the future, with the possibility of that being trialled against Leicester. Emile Smith Rowe and Gabriel Martinelli have been labelled as options for the role and either could start there on Sunday.
