Leicester City Team News
Jamie Vardy, who has 11 goals in this match, was forced off after 45 minutes against Brentford with a sore knee, but Rodgers is sure that the striker will be fit to play from the start here following a midweek rest, but Ayoze Perez and Ricardo Pereira have been ruled out.
However, James Justin, Marc Albrighton, and Wesley Fofana are all still out, while Wilfred Ndidi is unlikely to return until after the next international break, with Boubakary Soumare taking his place.
After being benched in midweek, Timothy Castagne and Kelechi Iheanacho are poised to return to the starting XI.
Arsenal Team News
Meanwhile, Arsenal has been plagued by a winter sickness, with Pablo Mari and Martin Odegaard both missing the win over Leeds, while Ben White was forced to leave the game midway through due to illness.
Arteta is confident that the trio’s illness will pass by the weekend, but Kieran Tierney’s ankle injury is a concern, and Nuno Tavares is looking for another chance after an impressive full debut.
Granit Xhaka is out for the foreseeable future, therefore Arteta is likely to persist with the 4-4-2 formation he used against Villa, with Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang starting together up front.
Leicester City XI:
Schmeichel; Amartey, Soyuncu, Evans; Pereira, Soumare, Tielemans, Castagne; Maddison; Vardy, Iheanacho
Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tierney; Saka, Partey, Lokonga, Smith Rowe; Aubameyang, Lacazette
