Arsenal given major injury boost ahead of Leicester clash


Arsenal have been handed a huge boost.

The club have a difficult end to the season as the campaign continues.

They are currently seventh in the Premier League table but they face a number of top teams between now and May.

On Tuesday, they take on Leicester City, before clashes with Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool, Manchester City, Aston Villa, and Watford.

Mikel Arteta’s side currently sit six points behind Manchester United in fifth; a fifth-placed finish could be enough to qualify for next season’s Champions League given Manchester City’s pending suspension from next season’s competition.

Their run-in is a remarkably tough one and the clash with the Foxes is a particularly difficult game; Brendan Rodgers’ side beat the Gunners 2-0 at the King Power Stadium in November.

But Arteta’s men have been handed a major boost ahead of the encounter.

Football.London reports that Rodgers has outlined a huge injury blow as Leicester prepare for Tuesday’s encounter.


Indeed, James Maddison and Ben Chilwell are both doubtful for the encounter; the former missed the weekend’s clash with Crystal Palace while Chilwell needed treatment midway through the game following an injection in his heel.

Maddison has scored nine goals and registered three assists in all competitions this season, while the left-back has made 33 appearances, scoring three goals and laying on four assists.

The pair are both a part of Rodgers’ squad and of his best starting XI.

GIVEMESPORT’S Harry Sherlock says…

Arsenal are in excellent form.

They have not lost in any of their last four games, beating Southampton, Sheffield United, Norwich City, and Wolves.

The Gunners have scored 10 goals and conceded just once.

Leicester, by comparison, have been struggling; since the resumption of Premier League proceedings, they have won just once, beating Crystal Palace 3-0 last time out.

They have also drawn with Watford and Brighton & Hove Albion and lost to both Chelsea and Everton.

With this news, one has to think that Arsenal will be confident of victory on Tuesday evening.
