Arsenal provide update on Dani Ceballos ahead of Leicester

Leicester vs Arsenal

Arsenal will travel to Leicester in Saturday’s late Premier League kick-off.

Despite it only being early November, the tie could have huge implications for Arsenal’s top-four hopes this campaign.

The north London outfit head into the weekend’s action 5th in the Premier League.

But they are already six points adrift of Leicester and Chelsea, who currently occupy 3rd and 4th spot respectively.

Should Arsenal lose to Leicester and Chelsea beat Crystal Palace this weekend, the Gunners would find themselves already nine points behind the top four, which would be a huge blow.

The two sides go into the game in fairly contrasting form as well.

The Foxes have emerged victorious from four of their last five PL outings, while Arsenal have amassed just one win in five league ties.
