Arsenal vs Leicester City
Competition: Premier League
Date: 14 February 2016
Time: 12:00 GMT
Venue: Emirates Stadium, London 
Arsenal team are joint second with London rivals spurs after they returned to winning ways on Sunday thanks to a comfortable 2-0 victory at Bournemouth, a match that saw the Gunners end a run of four league games without a win and three without a goal. Their defensive record is quite good as Wenger's men have kept five clean sheets in his last seven appearances. Coquelin is expected to return to the starting XI as the Frenchman should replace Mathieu Flamini as the shield in front of the back four. He could start alongside Aaron Ramsey in the double-pivot, with Alexis Sanchez and Ozil looking sure starters in the attacking midfield positions in the 4-2-3-1 formation. Olivier Giiroud will lead the line while in defence Gabriel should be preferred to Per Mertesacker.
Leicester sit 5 points clear at the top of the table after they emphatically brushed aside Man City 3-1 at the Etihad last weekend. The leaders will head to the capital in full confidence as they have also beat Stoke City (3-0) and Liverpool (2-0) in recent times. The Foxes have failed to score just once on their travels and are undefeated in 15 of their last 16 away matches. e
Claudio Ranieri is expected to keep the same XI as Shinji Okazaki should continue to be favoured in the supporting role to Jamie Vardy in attack, with Riyad Mahrez and Marc Albrighton continuing out wide in the 4-4-1-1 formation. The settled back four of Danny Simpson, Robert Huth, Wes Morgan and Christian Fuchs set to start as usual.
Earlier this season, Arsenal recorded a 5-2 victory at the King Power and they were also 2-1 winners in the corresponding league match last season.
