Pre-Match Report

U-23s: Arsenal v Leicester - Preview


Steve Gatting’s side are on the rise in Premier League 2, after back-to-back wins over Sunderland and Tottenham Hotspur.

During those two matches, we have found the back of the net on six occasions, with five different players getting on the scoresheet.

We have now risen to seventh in the table, having accumulated 13 points from the opening 10 games of the campaign.


Leicester travel south having avoided defeat in their previous five outings.

They come into the match off the back of consecutive wins against Reading, Tottenham Hotspur and Derby County.

The Foxes have also kept three clean sheets in their previous five games.


Eddie Nketiah has already found the back of the net 11 times this season, but the wait goes on for his first strike at this level.

The 17-year-old forward was our top scorer in the Under-18 Premier League last season, scoring 24 times in 28 appearances - a total which saw him end the season as the competition’s top scorer.

Nketiah could be set to start for the Gunners on Monday night, so he’s certainly one to keep an eye out for.
