Arsenal and Leicester have named their starting XIs for Saturday’s Premier League clash at the King Power stadium.

Arsenal start with Bernd Leno in goal, behind a back three of Calum Chambers, David Luiz and Rob Holding.

Hector Bellerín and Sead Kolašinac will play as wing-backs, with Mattéo Guendouzi and Lucas Torreira in midfield.

Mesut Özil has been tasked with supporting Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang up front.

Leicester, meanwhile, are unchanged from their 2-0 win against Crystal Palace last weekend.

Kasper Schmeichel starts in goal, with Jonny Evans and Caglar Söyüncü in defence.

Wilfried Ndidi, Youri Tielemans and James Maddison continue in midfield, with Harvey Barnes, Ayoze Pérez and Jamie Vardy up front.
