Leicester City vs Arsenal, English Premier League 2019-20: Match Preview

The Brendan Rodgers managed home team have been in brilliant form this season and consequently find themselves placed third at the points tally with as many as seven wins from 11 matches in the competition so far. On the other hand, Arsenal are placed fifth and are six points below the top four position.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery must have realised by now that a Champions League qualification will be a minimum requirement if he wishes to keep his job as a manager at Arsenal. However, by the current form, Leicester City seem more likely to qualify for the Champions League than Arsenal.

Saturday’s game will be a massive opportunity for Arsenal to prove that they are still very much in the race to finish in the top four but a defeat would leave them potentially nine points behind the top four place in only the month of November.

Post the Granit Xhaka incident, Emery has handed over the captaincy to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and the game will also be viewed for the unity of squad under the new captain.
