Arsenal welcome Leicester City to the Emirates in Sunday's unusually late Premier League fixture.

Last time out in the league Arsenal were beat 1-0 by Manchester City.

And Mikel Arteta could have a job on his hands with as many as five players missing the clash.

Willian, Rob Holding, Pablo Mari, Calum Chambers and Gabriel Martinelli are all currently sidelined.

Leicester also come into the fixture having lost their last two league matches. A 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa and a 3-0 loss to West Ham has left them in ninth in the league.

With the Foxes keen to claim the top four position they narrowly missed out on last season three points is a must for Brendan Rodgers.

Arsenal starting XI: Leno; Bellerin, David Luiz, Gabriel, Tierney; Ceballos, Xhaka, Partey, Saka; Lacazette, Aubameyang

Leicester starting XI: Schmeichel; Castagne, Fofana, Evans, Fuchs; Justin, Mendy, Tielemans, Praet, Maddison, Barnes

Leicester's lack of striker?

It looks as though Harvey Barnes will be leading Leicester’s attack today.

Vardy has been named on the bench but Barnes’ lack of experience will come as a worry to Foxes fans.

Maddison and Praet will be key in supporting him in attack.

Kick-off time

Kick-off at the Emirates is at 7.15pm on Sunday.

The other two Premier League fixtures being played on Sunday are Southampton vs Everton - who go into the weekend top of the table - at 2pm, and Wolves vs Newcastle at 4.30pm.

The weekend’s league fixtures are rounded off on Monday when West Brom go to Brighton and Burnley host Tottenham Hotspur.
