The Gunners are now hoping to get back to winning ways after back-to-back defeats in the Premier League which came against Crystal Palace and then Wolves.
Unai Emery’s men were only one point behind third-placed Tottenham Hotspur at this time last week and indeed they had a great chance to move up to third after Spurs were beaten away at Manchester City.
However, an awful defensive performance saw them lose 3-2 against Crystal Palace at the Emirates stadium, only a couple of hours after the final whistle at Goodison Park where Manchester Untied had been thrashed 4-0 by Everton.
The Gunners then went on to lose 3-1 at Wolves on Wednesday night to fall further behind, but after Tottenham’s loss at home to West Ham on Saturday afternoon, only days after Chelsea and United dropped points yet again, there is still hope for Unai Emery’s men, heading into the trip to Leicester City on Sunday.
Here is the starting eleven that we are expecting from the manager….
M. Niles – Sokratis – Koscielny – Kolasinac
Torreira – Xhaka – Guendouzi
Aubameyang – Lacazette – Iwobi
