Leicester City host Arsenal with no fresh injury concerns and a chance to assert their place in the top four of the Premier League nearly a third of the way through the season.

Brendan Rodgers has settled on a strong first-choice eleven this season, and it is likely he selects the same team that beat Crystal Palace last weekend.

Arsenal are six points behind the Foxes in fifth, but remain without Granit Xhaka, now officially shorn of the captaincy but not ready for a return to action.

Dani Ceballos is also out, and Unai Emery must decide how he wants to balance his side against the tough test Leicester will provide, with Nicolas Pepe perhaps the odd man out.
