Leicester v Arsenal: match preview

·1-min read

Leicester have tended to recover well from the few disappointments they have suffered this season and will be hoping to put Thursday’s Europa League elimination behind them by continuing their strong Premier League form on Sunday. That will required showing much more intensity than they did against Slavia Prague and overcoming the loss of James Maddison, who joined the club’s long injury list when he limped out of last week’s win at Aston Villa. Arsenal enjoyed a happier night of European action on Thursday and will be aiming to take advantage of their hosts’ troubles. Paul Doyle
