What is the team news?

Arsenal were without Dani Ceballos (ankle bruising) and Willian (calf) for Thursday’s Europa League victory against Rapid Vienna, and both will face fitness tests. Central defender Shkodran Mustafi was on the bench for that game as he continued his comeback from a severe hamstring injury. Other long-term absentees Calum Chambers and Pablo Mari are nearing a return to full training with Gabriel Martinelli expected back before the end of the year. Big signing Thomas Partey impressed in Vienna and played 90 minutes, but it remains to be seen if Mikel Arteta will ask him to go again on Sunday.

There is a potential boost for Leicester, with Brendan Rodgers stating Jamie Vardy was due to return to training on Friday with a view to starting at the Emirates. Vardy missed Leicester’s home defeat to Aston Villa with a long-running calf problem. Key absentees Ricardo Pereira, Wilfred Ndidi and Caglar Soyuncu face long spells on the treatment table.
