Pre-Match Report

Leicester City v Arsenal: The Brief

We head into Monday night’s visit to Leicester City as the form team in Premier League 2 - and we’ll be looking to pick up where we left off.

THE STORY SO FAR

We arrive in the Midlands having scored 19 times in our last five matches in all competitions and top of the form table.

With six matches still to play, we now trail Liverpool by just one point and hold a game in hand over the Merseyside club.


THE OPPOSITION

Leicester are another side enjoying a strong campaign, having lost just one of their last five matches.

The Foxes are currently third in the table, with 30 points accumulated from their 17 matches to-date.

In their last outing, they came out on the wrong side of a 1-0 scoreline with Chelsea.

ONE TO WATCH

Emile Smith Rowe has handled the step up from the under-18s in style.

A cultured, creative midfielder, capable of playing on the flanks or in central areas, his technical ability has proved crucial in unlocking defences.
 
Last time out, the under-17 World Cup winner featured in central midfield alongside Joe Willock.

LAST TIME WE MET

It was a tight affair when the Foxes visited Meadow Park in September, with us running out 1-0 victors.

Darnell Johnson inadvertently turned the ball into his own net after a dangerous Jordi Osei-Tutu cross, in what was the only goal of the game.

Eddie Nketiah repeatedly went close to extending our advantage, but goalkeeper Daniel Iversen was in fine form.
