Leonardo Ulloa Leicester CitySTAR MANLeonardo UlloaLeicester like to exploit the flanks and get crosses in and they have reaped the rewards of this approach with Leonardo Ulloa in the box. The tall Argentinian started the season brightly but has struggled to maintain his goalscoring form. However, the striker scored against Arsenal in the reverse fixture, so the Gunners will need to be alert to shut him out this time.
