It promises to be an exciting encounter with Arsenal having back all key players from injury, and Danny Welbeck likely to be included for the first time this season after a long-term injury.

Leicester will miss long-term absentees Jeff Schlupp and Matty James who is also not ready to return to play but they are poised to clinch another stunner this week against the Gunners who won September's reverse fixture 5-2.

The Foxes have lost just one of their last 16 Premier League away games (W10, D5) with 28 of their points coming away from home this season.

After this trip to Emirates, Leicester have only two games against the current top six teams left to play and a win on Sunday will prompt talk of a fairytale first league title.
