Few weeks after beating Leicester city in the Carabao cup 4th round, Arsenal play them again on Sunday in a premier league match. Can Leicester have their revenge this time or will Arsenal have a double win?
The game no doubt will an exciting and intriguing match to behold as the both team will go all out for the win. Leicester most especially will be looking to bounce back after losing to Aston Villa in their last premier league game.
Arsenal on the other hand will look to build the momentum from their last Europa league win against Rapid Vienna and secure three point against the foxes. I pray Arteta go straight with his normal formation and not try an experiment this time around.
The last premier league match against Manchester city was a disappointment for the gunners as they deserved to come out with atleast a point. They had pretty good chances but couldn't convert them.
Arteta tactical experiment has cost Arsenal some valuable points. For instance, in the match against Manchester city where he used willian as a striker. If Mikel Arteta is serious about winning Leicester, he should use this formation and this team selection as shown in the picture below;
This is a 4-3-3 formation consisting of the best Arsenal players in the team. The 3-4-3 formation he has been using has seen Arsenal being compact and defensively tight but it lacks creativity. Using this 4-3-3 formation will exploit Leicester city weakness in the midfield.
Aston villa used this 4-3-3 formation and won Leicester. Arsenal can do same as they have even better players than Aston villa. Thomas partey will be in front of the defense, he will be supported by Granit xhaka who will sometimes advance forward to help the attack. Dani ceballos will play a free role and also contribute in goal creation.
Willian poor display in the last few match have been a concern to fan. I would have say we should use Willian in place of Pepe but currently, pepe is more productive than him. So therefore, unless Arteta uses this formation, I can't see Arsenal winning Leicester
