Confirmed Leicester City vs Arsenal lineups: Willian starts with Saka only on the bench

Arsenal make a host of changes from Thursday’s dramatic Europa League win over Benfica, but Bernd Leno keeps his place in goal.

Cedric Soares starts at right-back with Kieran Tierney on the left, whilst Pablo Mari partners David Luiz at center-back today.

Leicester have Kasper Schmeichel between the sticks as usual, with a back four ahead of him in Timothy Castagne, Jonny Evans, Caglar Soyuncu, and Luke Thomas.
