Leicester will face another massive test as they take on Arsenal at home this Saturday. The Gunners are currently top of the table and despite a bit of a dip lately, they are big favorites to win, but we believe Leicester can give them a real fight.
Leicester could be starting and playing without James Maddison who yet again could be missing a game due to his knee and worries regarding fitness.
This will not be a major consern looking at the team sheet with Youri Tielemans taking his place in the team.
We do believe that Brendan Rodgers will settle with a 4-4-3 system and just make that one change as other players do deserve their place after recent performances.
