Mikel Arteta is a big fan of the job Brendan Rodgers has done since taking charge of Leicester City.
The Foxes travel to Emirates Stadium on Sunday, and our manager is expecting a a tougher game than our Carabao Cup third-round clash earlier this season.
“I think it was different,” Arteta said. “Different players and probably different formations as well, in a different competition. But I think we will both look at those and try to get something out of it, but I think it will be a different game.
“They're a really difficult team. I think Brendan and his team have done a great job. They dramatically changed the philosophy and the way of playing since they arrived and I think they had an incredible season last year.
“This season, ups and downs, like almost every team in the Premier League and some incredible results, like when they played against [Manchester] City.
“They can adapt and play different ways and sometimes they are really dominant, sometimes they can defend with a low block but overall they're a really, really good team.”
