Midfield enforcer Francis Coquelin made his return earlier this month in an FA Cup tie. Since then, he has featured in 2 Premier League games, although only as a substitute.

Perhaps Wenger was saving Coquelin for the Leicester clash, as a win is necessary for the Gunners. Elsewhere, Per Mertesacker will be benched following the obvious threat of Jamie Vardy’s pace and Riyad Mahrez’s trickery.

Mesut Ozil, Theo Walcott and Alexis Sanchez make up a strong attacking trio behind the in-form striker Olivier Giroud.

Arsenal walked away as 5-2 winners last time around when these two teams met and a similar result will put them in driving seat for the final 12 matches of the season.
