Arsenal are aiming for victory when they visit Leicester City’s headquarters in the 2020/2021 Premier League. The following are the composition of the two teams. The match will take place at the King Power Stadium, Leicester.

Leicester City vs Arsenal
On the other hand Arsenal sit in 11th place 11 points behind fourth-placed West Ham United.
Leicester is very likely to finish in the top four this season, this can happen because The Foxes have collected 49 points from 25 matches and are in third place in the standings.
Brendan Rodgers’ men have collected 10 points from their last four league games, including back-to-back wins over Liverpool and Aston Villa.
Leicester City stared at this match with less than good capital after swallowing a disappointing 2-0 defeat to Slavia Prague in the second leg of the Europa League last 32.
Leicester’s European trip for the 2020-21 season is over, but they are still following the FA Cup against Manchester United in the quarter-finals of the competition on March 21 and are focused on securing a top four spot.
Rodgers’ side have the second best away record in the Premier League, but they have lost five of their 12 league games at the King Power Stadium and will be wary of a talented Arsenal side.
Leicester have not lost to the Gunners in the English top flight since October 2018, and recorded a 1-0 win when the two teams faced each other in the first half of the league at the start of the season.
A total of 34 points from 25 games has seen them drop to 11th in the table, 11 points from the top four and only four points clear of Southampton in 14th, which is an indication of their poor form.
Arsenal’s away form this season has also been disappointing, missing six of 12 league games, and if they lose tonight it will put them in a difficult position ahead of fixtures that include games against Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham and Liverpool.
