Arsenal have a golden opportunity to steal a march on their rivals to finish in the top four of the Premier League when they travel to Leicester on Sunday.

Unai Emery’s side have suffered back-to-back defeats against Crystal Palace and Wolves, but with Chelsea and Manchester United facing off later in the day, the Gunners have the opportunity to take the initiative.

The Foxes have been going along quietly well under Brendan Rodgers, meanwhile, and are on course to finish in the top half of the table.

Match Preview


If Arsenal fail to finish in the top four of the Premier League, Unai Emery’s first season in charge of the club will be deemed a failure.

For so long the Gunners were well positioned to do so, yet three defeats in their last four matches means that the door has been opened for Chelsea and Manchester United to overhaul them.

Last Sunday’s 3-2 defeat against Crystal Palace was a massive shock to the system and it was followed up by a loss to Wolves, with individual defensive errors undermining their challenge in both fixtures.

These need to be cut out if they are to produce a much-needed victory at the King Power Stadium.

“The first target is to recover our confidence,” Emery said on the eve of the game.

“We can build on this confidence each minute, each hour, each day, each week - and above all we're training and we're looking for a big performance for the three points.

“Individually for Sunday the first target is to think in our capacity and be consistent defensively and offensively.

“We need to adapt to them, but I think both are very important. We need to prepare ourselves and also adapt for them.”

A constant for the Gunners this season has been their dreadful away form, with just 22 of their 66 points coming on the road.

Seeking to take advantage of this are Leicester, who would overhaul both Everton and Watford if they were to win, with manager Brendan Rodgers hungry to win every game.

“Until the last whistle goes here against Chelsea [on the final day], for me, this season, there’s everything to play for,” he said. “That’s always been my attitude in the games.

“What delights me with these players is that each day in training since I’ve been here, they’re becoming better and better and they’re improving all the time.

“We’re very much on the right road and this is a team that will continue to show that.”

In Rodgers’ maiden match against a ‘Big Six’ club since returning to the Premier League from Celtic, he will be desperate his side make a strong account of themselves.
