Arsenal will travel to King Power Stadium to take on Leicester City on Wednesday evening.
Both sides have nothing left to play for this season besides their pride, and we expect an open and exciting encounter with a number of youngsters featuring in both starting elevens.
The Foxes have looked disjointed in the recent weeks, and it’s very obvious that Claude Puel’s players are suffering from the end-of-the-season syndrome. Leicester have picked up only a point from their last five games, and on the weekend, they lost 2-0 to West Ham at King Power.
Recent reports have suggested that Puel is set to be sacked in the summer, and these speculations would certainly not help the Foxes. As things stand, Leicester sit in the ninth spot with 44 points.
The Gunners gave an emotional farewell to Arsene Wenger in their last home game of the season on Sunday. Arsenal were flawless as they demolished Burnley 5-0 at Emirates, but their away form has been shockingly bad this season. They are yet to pick up a point on the road in 2018.
Arsenal sit in the sixth spot with 60 points, and they can’t improve or worsen their position in the league table.
Earlier this season, the Gunners registered a 4-3 win over their opponents in the reverse fixture at the Emirates Stadium.
