Thomas Partey

After securing a 2-1 win over Rapid Wien in the Europa League on Thursday last week, Arsenal will retune for a Premier League challenge against Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday night.

The North London outfit were helped by goals from David Luiz and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to come from behind to steal a win away from home.

Now that the Mikel Arteta team is back, the 3-4-3 formation is expected to be continued with Bernd Leno behind the sticks.

However, Hector Bellerin is expected to retune to the team after his position was handled by Cedric Soares in the Europa League game with Bukayo Saka also at the left-wing.

The presence of Gabriel Magalhaes is not negotiable in the team and he could pair with David Luiz and Kieran Tierney at the back.

At the midfield, Thomas Partey is expected to have his first start in the Premier League after Mikel Arteta claimed that he is ready and we could see him pair with Dani Ceballos and Granit Xhaka.

Nicolas Pepe, Alexandre Lacazette, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will also lead the attack to give Mikel Arteta a formidable team against the Foxes.
