Premier League Top four hopefuls Arsenal faces off against Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Both teams will be looking for back-to-back wins. The Gunners will know that they will not face an easy task against the third place Foxes, who defeated Crystal Palace 3-0 in their last game.

Arsenal are currently on a good run of form. Mikel Arteta’s side has won their last three consecutive league games without conceding.

Their victory against Wolves marked the first time that they achieved that since November 2017.

Arsenal is set to welcome back attacker Nicolas Pepe who had to miss the team’s win over Wolverhampton Wanderers because his wife was giving birth, according to BBC.  

The report added that Calum Chambers, Bernd Leno, Gabriel Martinelli and Pablo Mari will miss the game.

If Emiliano Martinez starts in goal for Arteta’s side, he will be looking to continue his good form.

The Argentine has so far kept a clean sheet in six out of his eight league starts for the Gunners. He has the first ratio of any Gunners keeper who has at least five starts in the competition.

The Gunners does not have recent history in their favour as they have lost three out of their previous four league games against Leicester.

If the Foxes is to win, it will mark the first time since 1963 that they have claimed three consecutive league victories against Arsenal.

Arsenal are however unbeaten in 22 home league games against Leicester and have won the past 12.
