TEAM NEWS: No place for Guendouzi and Ozil as Arsenal parade team to face Leicester City

The race for European places is hotting up and it will be burning bright at the Emirates this evening as Arsenal host Leicester in the Premier League. 

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has made two changes from the team that beat Wolves 2-0 over the weekend. Cedric Soares and Eddie Nketiah drop out, with the latter starting on the bench.

Hector Bellerin and Alexandre Lacazette come into the XI, with the Frenchman rewarded for his late goal on Saturday. Once again, there is no place for Mesut Ozil or Matteo Guendouzi.

As expected, neither Ben Chilwell nor James Maddison are fit for Leicester as Brendan Rodgers makes one change with the injured left-back being replaced by Wolves loanee Ryan Bennett.

Harvey Barnes starts on the bench once again despite assisting two goals for Jamie Vardy in Saturday’s 3-0 win against Crystal Palace.

Arsenal XI:  Martinez, Mustafi, Luiz, Kolasinac, Bellerin, Ceballos, Xhaka, Tierney, Saka, Lacazette, Aubameyang.

Subs: Macey, Sokratis, Torreira, Maitland-Niles, Holding, Pepe, Nelson, Willock, Nketiah.

Leicester XI: Schmeichel, Justin, Evans, Soyuncu, Bennett, Perez, Tielemans, Ndidi, Albrighton, Iheanacho, Vardy.

Subs: Ward, Morgan, Gray, Barnes, Choudhury, James, Mendy, Praet, Fuchs.
