Leicester City vs Arsenal - Matty James still out for Leicester

Midfielder Matty James remains Leicester’s only injury absentee ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash with Arsenal at the King Power Stadium.

James is sidelined with a long-term Achilles injury, and although he has again started training with the rest of the squad, manager Brendan Rodgers is refusing to set a date for his return.

Rodgers, otherwise, has a fully-fit squad to choose from as City look to cement their lofty third place in the table against the fifth-placed Gunners.

Granit Xhaka will once again be missing from the Arsenal squad.

The 27-year-old has not played for the Gunners since swearing at supporters when he was substituted in a draw against Crystal Palace last month.

It remains to be seen when he returns but head coach Unai Emery will be light in midfield with Xhaka’s continued absence and Dani Ceballos ruled out with a hamstring issue.

Leicester provisional squad: Schmeichel, Ward, Jakupovic, Chilwell, Justin, Pereira, Morgan, Evans, Fuchs, Benkovic, Soyuncu, Amartey, Gray, Praet, Tielemans, Maddison, Albrighton, Barnes, Choudhury, Mendy, Ndidi, Perez, Vardy, Iheanacho.

Arsenal provisional squad: Leno, Martinez, Bellerin, Chambers, Mustafi, Holding, Papastathopoulos, Luiz, Kolasinac, Tierney, Guendouzi, Xhaka, Torreira, Willock, Maitland-Niles, Ozil, Pepe, Saka, Nelson, Lacazette, Aubameyang, Martinelli.
