“Demarai has improved a lot in training sessions.

 “He will start more training sessions on Monday morning. He has made good work and it will be interesting.”

Puel also gave an update on Matty James:

“We will see when he will be available,” he continued. “He has improved a lot in training and in the gym. He is happy about his progress. He has a smile and it’s a good feeling with him.

Arsenal vs Leicester

Leicester City head into Monday’s game 10th in the Premier League.

The Foxes lost their last game 2-1 at home to Everton.

In total they have won four and lost four of their eight league games this season.

Arsenal, on the other hand, come into this game in scintillating form.

After smashing Fulham 5-1 in their last league game, the Gunners are now on a nine-match unbeaten run in all competitions this season.

They are also closing in on the top of the table.

Given Chelsea could well drop points to Manchester United this weekend, Arsenal will be keen to secure all three points in hopes of overtaking the Blues at the top of the table.
