Arsenal XI vs Leicester: Confirmed team news, planned line-up and latest injuries for today’s Premier League game

All three players have been struggling with form lately but have taken part in training this week.

As a result, they could play Leicester at the Emirates Stadium this afternoon, although Mikel Arteta was coy on exactly who would play.

“They have been reinstated in training this week, all of them,” the Spaniard told reporters during his pre-match press conference on Friday. “They are in different phases, but some of them will be in the team.”

Kieran Tierney also struggled to stay fit as he recovered from a serious knee injury but came off the bench in last week’s win over Crystal Palace.

“He played 20 minutes last weekend and he did very well,” Arteta said. “He’s been out for a long time after his knee injury.

“But he looks perfectly fine now and ready to go.”

Reiss Nelson will not retain his place in the matchday squad against Leicester as he deals with a thigh problem.
