Leicester City team news and predicted XI vs Arsenal

All the news from the Foxes camp as they welcome the Premier League leaders

Leicester City welcome Premier League leaders Arsenal to the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon as they look to bounce back from a disappointing 3-0 defeat to Manchester United last Sunday.

The Foxes, who currently sit 14th in the top flight after an awful start to the campaign, had won two in a row before they came unstuck against the Red Devils, and will be hoping for a return to that kind of form when Arsenal take to the pitch, with the Gunners themselves having only won one of their last four Premier League games.

Read on for how we expect Brendan Rodgers’ side to line up and the latest team news from the midlands.

Predicted XI

Team News

Quizzed on injuries, Brendan Rodgers was upbeat but did warn that James Maddison may not be able to play 90 minutes amid continuing concerns over a knee injury picked up before the World Cup.

“We’re starting to get a lot of our players back. We have to see how James Maddison is. He’s still nursing his knee injury. We just need to assess that”, he told the media.

Ryan Bertrand, however, will not be thrown back into proceedings, with Rodgers explaining that “He’s back in training with the squad. He’s a bit off in terms of match fitness. But he’s available to train.”

Another man who will miss out is veteran defender Jonny Evans, who remains sidelined with a thigh injury, though Rodgers is hopeful his compatriot can return to training in the next week. “[There’s] No timeline as of yet”, he revealed. “We’ll see where he’s at tomorrow. He hasn’t been with the group. We’re hoping he can join in next week.”
